search for the hidden clover {review}

12:13 AM

I am so excited today to tell you about some new children's books! The Search For The Hidden Clover is a great series by author and illustrator, Julia Heckathorn. The mission of these books? "To bring joy and wonder to the hearts of children of all ages through the knowledge and experience of our world and the fascinating creatures in it."

They definitely do just that, providing not just another book but an educational, interactive experience. As I read Kangaroo Island and Redwood Forest to my 7 year old Emma G, she loved them. The games were definitely her favorite part.

As a mom, there's several things I love about these books. Of course, the practical side of me loves the hardback cover. I also love the flow of the rhyming story. I'm a sucker for books that rhyme. :) The contrast between a background that looks like a photo and the animated characters who are visiting different places around the world looking for clovers, is definitely visually appealing. The little "Julia says" snippets are packed full of interesting facts. I never knew there are over 60 types of kangaroos living in Australia!

These are books that appeal to readers of all ages. Smaller kids will enjoy being read to while participating in the games. Bigger kids will enjoy reading the educational facts and ALL will love the adventures that Jason and Julia go on to find four leaf clovers.

Because of The Hidden Clover team's commitment to conservation, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of their books, goes to helping save the quickly disappearing three-toed Pygmy sloths. There's only 300 left in the world! They also offer an outreach program to schools, parks, museums, retailers, and child care facilities. Email them for more info on their outreach program or to schedule an event.

These books are like a sweet gem that you don't want to miss out on! Buy your copies here or on Amazon!

  2. AW! Sounds and looks like great books :o) I loved reading with and for our three when they were growing up (there were some nights that I would get a little hoarse from reading! lol) ...and even up to when they were pre-teens, I often found myself "pre-reading" some choices (to see content, but also cuz I enjoyed them :o) Last year while visiting our oldest in July, I was able to read our daughter's copy of The you could say, I still read along with fun to talk about books that they have read and that I have had the chance to read too.

    Blessings & Aloha!
