Book Sharing Monday :: Usborne Boys' Activity Book --- + a small update on our move

We moved last week from Ontario to Prince Edward Island. I apologize for the poor quality of the the photos in this post. The moving truck hasn't arrived (I am typing on the floor!). We just hooked up our computer yesterday and I don't have my camera out yet, so these photos are from our iPod.

Our big move went well. My two youngest children and I traveled by train from Windsor, Ontario to Moncton, New Brunswick. This was a long train ride and I didn't bring many things along because we had to change trains twice. We then made our way to PEI for our final destination!

My son (13) has his own iPod Touch and Celeste (8) used mine at times. I had uploaded audiobooks from the library to each iPod and they listened to those. I also had brought Dutch Blitz card game and the two activity books seen in the photo above. My daughter didn't use it as much as my son. This book was a hit with him!

The Usborne Boys' Activity book is filled with a ton of puzzles, codes to crack, jokes, did you know? facts, mazes, stickers, writing prompts (finish the story) and doodle suggestions. The book is organized by themes, monsters, cars, space, etc..Hours and hours of fun, really!

If you want to participate in Book Sharing Monday, please leave the link to your book sharing post below. Happy reading!


  1. You're so lucky! Moncton is beautiful, the beach in Shediac is only 20 mins away, and you have that mall with the big Chapters and the amusement park! Great choice of places to move to. :)

  2. Congrats on the move. Sounds like you are going to have plenty of opportunities to explore.

  3. Congratulations on your new home, Alex! And have fun settling in. Those Usborne books look like winners for long trips--and we'll be taking a couple of them this summer and fall, so thanks for sharing!

  4. Moving is so much work, but I have heard only good things about the people in PEI and about the beauty there. You will have lots of exploring to do!

    I appreciate you sharing the pages on the inside of the books as I wouldn't have been interested in them otherwise, but can see that my kids would love them!
