Take It From Me: AmmoBooks Review & GIVEAWAY (closed)

AmmoBooks Review & GIVEAWAY (closed)

Being that most kids have gone back to school and are “hitting the books” and expanding their knowledge with each page turn, why not do the same for your younger kids with some great childrens books from AMMO Books!
I don’t know about you, but my kids are obsessed with books! They love it when my husband and I read to them, and they also love exploring books on their own. Neither of them can go to bed without a book, or multiple books at that, being read to them. I don’t blame them because I was the same way as a child! I love visiting my parents’ house and seeing the books that I so once loved to curl up in bed and read. One book in particular that stood out to me as a child was a book called Drummer Hoff. Besides the great story, as a child I remembered how vivid, interesting, and creative the pictures in the book were. Completely unlike any others I had seen before. I loved looking at page after page of the magnificent artwork in the book. The book really made such a profound impression on me.
The books from AMMO Books are unique as well. Their colorful and creative concepts completely remind me of the Drummer Hoff book. AMMO Books aim at providing people with these “one-of-a-kind visually charged” types of books that will both awaken and inspire! Their selection of books is like no other and any of their books would make an exquisite addition to your library collection! I had the opportunity to sample a few of their selections and was impressed by each item.
The first book- ABC IS FOR CIRCUS by Patrick Hruby really captures the vibrant and festive world of the circus. Each letter focusses on a different aspect of the circus… A is for Acrobats, B is for Big Top, etc. The book is great for children learning their alphabet! My almost 2 year old can’t read yet, but really enjoys looking at all the cool pictures in the book. One thing in particular that I liked about this book is that the illustrator Patrick Hruby’s artwork was inspired by his childhood—growing up in a log cabin in Idaho, dreaming of running away and joining the circus to become a trapeze artist. What fun!
I chose the second book- KID MADE MODERN by Todd Oldham (famous designer that I really like) because it is a book full of projects for kids. It’s nice to have a few “hands on books” that get kids creativity moving! The small and simple projects in this book produce such grand designs, which are quite eye-popping! What’s even more impressive is that most of the things are made from inexpensive, often recycled, and easily accessible materials. And there are really good photographs and easy-to-follow steps for all the projects.
The last thing I got was a set of CHARLEY HARPER NESTING BLOCKS. The blocks feature a ton of Charley Harper’s “whimsical and well-loved illustrations” and featured letter and numbers for educational purposes as well. My kids absolutely LOVE stacking the blocks super high, looking at all the pictures on the blocks, and seeing the blocks come tumbling down. The blocks are interactive, decorative, and great for decorating as well!
AMMO Books has tons of other great books for kids and more on their website so be sure to check them all out!
