I know I’ve said this before on past DK Canada reviews that I’ve done, but I LOVE DK Canada. I love the variety of their book titles – so many really cool, educational books for everyone in the family. DK Canada online always has something going on, from fun promos and great sales to unique contests with great prizes. Currently, they have two contests running:
Sign up for their DK Canada newsletter (yup, that’s it!) and you’re entered to win a $150 March Break Survival prize pack (ends April 16th, 2012).
And another that ends very soon:
The What Did You Make on March Break contest is on RIGHT NOW, but ends March 31, 2012, so you have to act fast. You could win a collection of autographed Jane Bull craft books AND a $150 DK Canada Shopping spree!! To enter, parents are asked to send a pic of their child’s creations (for ages 3-14). At the end of the month, Jane Bull will judge the pics and choose a winner. All the deets to enter are here.
DK Canada sent me a Jane Bull book – Made by Me to review over the March Break (I’m a little behind, sorry!)
My daughter immediately took Made by Me hostage and would not share it at all. She stared at it for hours, and read as much as she could on her own. For that alone, this book is a WINNER.
Made by Me is a “stitch-by-stitch guide to knitting, sewing and embroidery.” There are several crafts to make within each category, and each craft has a dedicated page or two with tons of pics to help you along. If you or someone you know enjoys crafting and is looking for a beginner book to share with their kids, Made by Me by Jane Bull is a great choice!
Book: Hardcover | 64 pages | ISBN 9780756651633 | 28 Apr 2009 | geared to 7 – 11 years ($16.99, but on sale for $11.89)
Don’t miss out!! Go enter the What Did You Make On March Break contest before the end of the month!!
Disclaimer: I was sent the book for the purposes of review, but my words are my own.
