Choose Your Own Prize Giveaway!

It’s the final day in the 10 Days of Homeschool Giving and I am excited to bring you this last giveaway. As many of you know, last fall I became an Usborne Books & More Independent Consultant.  I have used Usborne’s books in my homeschool for years, so I took the plunge in order to get the discount on the books that I was already purchasing. I have quickly fallen in LOVE with this business and I have even recently promoted to Team Leader!

So for the close of this fabulous series, I’ve decided to share my Usborne love with my readers.

  1. Jennifer Mathesz says:

    I think i’d go for the science bundles because our whole family loves doing experiments together

  2. There are some great bundles up for grabs! I don’t know how I could choose just one…. I’m so torn! But, I think I would go with the Phonics bundle. It would help with my youngest right now.

  3. Rebecca Xavier says:

    I would like the phonics set since my daughter will be starting to learn how to read next year.

  4. Emily Seawell says:

    Such a fantastic giveaway! I would choose the Phonics bundle. My daughter is in pre-k, and she responds well to phonics! She doesn’t do so well with others and I’m running out of phonics material! This would finish up our pre-k year and well into kindergarten! Thank you for the opportunity.

  5. Thank you so much for the opportunity to win one of these amazing packages!

  6. What an awesome giveaway! I would definitely choose the science package because I have 2 boys who can not get enough science!

  7. Nikki ernst says:

    My choice would be the math set as I have two budding mathametitians in the home they just can’t get enough of the dreaded subject !

  8. What a great giveaway, I think we would choose science, we have a real need for some science books!

  9. I would choose the history bundle! We love history here. 🙂 Thanks for a great giveaway!

  10. Stephanie Newton says:

    I would LOVE all of them – but if I had to pick one, it would be art. My girls LOVE art!

  11. I would choose the art bundle, we need some culture in our homeschool. lol! Seriously, the books look beautiful, and it would be a fun way to learn art history. Thank you for the giveaway!

  12. I would pick the science books, because that is the part of our home school curriculum that needs the biggest boost.

  13. I would love the art bundle. My kids have really enjoyed our art unit studies this year, and Usborne books are such a great resource!

  14. I own 2/3 of the history books! They’re great. 🙂 I’d want the art group because I feel that’s the area we’re most lacking in our homeschool.

  15. jess fritzges says:

    I thought I would like the phonics or history but then I saw the math dictionaries. I would choose math for those.

  16. What a great giveaway! To choose a favorite though… that’s tough. I’m stuck between science and art. Both kids love both of those subjects. I would probably go with art though, just because we don’t have as many resources in that subject, and those books look awesome!

  17. I would pick the Phonics, because I love the reading books! But they are all great prizes!

  18. Victoria Farr says:

    I would love to get the Phonics package for my little one 🙂

  19. Jessica Medina says:

    I oulw love to win the history bundle. its my favorite subject to teach!

  20. I would love the math set because it would help make math more fun for my children!

  21. Either the art or history bundle. It’s hard to choose!

  22. If I were to win, I would choose the Math package because it seems like we don’t have many interesting books on math!!

  23. Have to go with phonics since I have an almost 5 year old. Have been wanting to check out Usborne.

  24. Art–because my kids need more in that area.

  25. Christina Graham says:

    So difficult…I think I would choose the Science since we love STEM.

  26. I would choose either the history or art not sure yet…hard decision

  27. What a fun giveaway. Hope to win

  28. Everything looks so cool. But history looks the most interesting.

  29. Art because I feel it is the most difficult to pull together something cohesively. This would help direct focus and make life easier for me 🙂

  30. Judith Martinez says:

    I would love the art collection because art is a gap in our library.

  31. Christine Mast says:

    I would love the Art bundle. I am trying to do more art and music appreciation and they would be awesome. Thanks for the giveaway.

  32. They are all wonderful, but I would choose the Art package. We could always use more art books! 🙂

  33. Monica Street says:

    I would pick the science bundle! My kids love doing experiments!

  34. froggsbugg says:

    I believe i would pick the history package because its the most difficult subject for me to find interesting things to teach with.

  35. LaKisha R. says:

    I would choose the science package. My son loves to experiment, but doesn’t enjoy learning more about science. I’m sure that he’ll love the activities and forget that he’s actually learning at the same time.

  36. Ashlie Perry says:

    What an awesome giveaway! Would be a blessing to add to our first yr of homeschooling

    I would choose the science. My granddaughter has a real interest in science and would really enjoy it.

  39. Janice Pope says:

    I would choose the Art set!

  40. My vote is either art or phonics. I have two new readers at my house so the phonics package would be great practice. And we love art so that one would be fun as well. I actually own almost all the books in the science package! Those are fun!

  41. I would choose the science bundle because my son loves to do experiments.

  42. I’d have to pick the math bundle because it’s the only bundle that doesn’t have books I already own 🙂

  43. I would choose the Art bundle because I need more resources in that area.

  44. Usborne books are enticing. I don’t any, but have been able to get a few at the library. The history and art packages appeal to me the most.
