Read and Grow with DK Canada (Review & Giveaway)






As we're nearing the end of May and beginning of June, summer is getting closer and closer and I'm so excited for it. One of the things I love about living in Canada, we get all four seasons and get to appreciate and enjoy each one.

With the warmer weather, my youngest is excited to explore all the things outside in our backyard, especially butterflies and flowers thanks to our friends over at DK Canada. We were sent I Can Grow A Flower and How Does A Butterfly Grow. Both books are filled with colorful vibrant pictures that captured my daughter's attention immediately and had her wanting to learn more about growing flowers and had her wanting to go outside to look for butterflies.



A first garden story board book that reveals how plants grow.

Teach your child how a tiny seed grows into a flower in this fascinating garden story. Through illustrations and photography, sixteen delightful board book pages reveal the wonder of how plants grow as you follow the story of a mystery seed. How was it planted? What does it need? What will it become? As days go by, it's hard to imagine the tiny shoot will ever grow into a big, strong plant. Could it magically become the tallest of all the garden flowers? The book includes very simple gardening projects and facts about garden creatures (which ones are good for plants, and which ones are bad), and children will find out what a pollinator is, and how to attract pollinators to the garden. The perfect gift for aspiring gardeners.



My little girl absolutely loved the book I Can Grow A Flower. All of the pretty colorful pictures showing her step by step how to plant and grow a flower. She is excited to plant a few flowers of her own and take care of them. I absolutely love how excited she got while I read the book to her. The book is 18 pages and is such a quick read, the colorful pictures keep your little kiddos interested and excited to see how to take care of flowers and to see how they grow.


From egg to hungry caterpillar, to beautiful, fluttery butterfly, this picture book with flaps follows the complete life cycle of a butterfly. With sturdy board book pages and exciting flaps to lift, it's the perfect life cycle book for young children.

This captivating nature book will entertain and educate preschoolers. They'll love finding out about each life cycle stage, as they follow the fascinating pictures and listen to the fun and friendly text.

Beautifully illustrated, the book starts by showing all sorts of colorful butterflies. Then through the story of the swallowtail, children learn how a butterfly grows. Close-up photos show the mommy swallowtail laying her eggs, the tiny caterpillar hatching and growing, and the pretty butterfly emerging from its chrysalis. The fully grown swallowtail's scaly, brightly patterned wings lift up from the page as fluttery flaps, and more flaps reveal three other caterpillars transforming into incredible butterflies and an amazing moth. As well as the butterfly life cycle, the book includes other butterfly facts, such as how they feed, how they spread pollen, and how they are similar and different to moths.

Perfect for reading aloud, and with stage by stage pictures that tell the butterfly story, every page is easy to follow, and the combination of exciting, crystal-clear photos and charming artwork will hold the interest of the very young.
With a friendly approach to life cycle science for young learners, How Does a Butterfly Grow? is an informative picture book to share and enjoy. It makes a great educational gift.


How Does A Butterfly Grow was such a great read. Again this book is about 18 pages filled with colorful pictures that show from beginning to end the process of a caterpillar growing from an egg all the way to a beautiful majestic butterfly. My daughter absolutely loved learning about butterflies and loved that the book had fun flaps that she could lift up and had more information about how a butterfly grows. 

If you are looking for books for your kiddos, be sure to check out both I Can Grow A Flower and How Does A Butterfly Grow, both are filled with colorful pages that will keep you child intrigued to learn more. 

I'm excited to be partnering up with DK Canada and will be offering both these books to one Canadian reader of Just Us Girls! Comment below sharing which book you think your child would love to read!
