Favorite Usborne Books



I’ve shared a bit about Usborne books before and how I’m a sales consultant with this amazing company. We truly fell in love with their children’s books and I decided to join so I could make commission off the books that people buy from my links – and to share my love for these quality, educational titles.

What makes these books different (in my opinion) is how interactive and engaging they are- they really make learning fun!

I got overwhelmed with people asking for wish lists on Instagram this week so I decided to put all of my favorites here in one place, organized by age and subject!

I so appreciate your support in shopping from my links and giving me credit for the sales – it really means a lot to our family!

Here are some favorites by age:


There are SO many great baby board books on Usborne. I love how interactive they are! Not only are they great for building your book collection but they make wonderful gifts (a nice alternative to the 3rd copy of Good Night Moon :) )

Very First Lift-A-Flap Series: Little ones LOVE these flap books!

That’s Not My…. Series – You’ve probably seen this touch & feel series before, Usborne has nearly every animal (and other characters) so there’s bound to be a favorite of your child in the collection. My girls LOVED these books, and Piper really enjoys “reading them” to Flora now at ages 2 & 4 :)

“Are You There Little…” Peek Through Series: Flora is a huge fan of this peek through series, the illustrations are just gorgeous and they make great gifts!

Baby’s First Playbook Series: High contrast, engaging illustrations and great for introducing words to expand vocabulary!

Baby’s First Slide & See Series: Another interactive option for little learners!

Baby’s First Black & White Library: I love this as a baby shower gift and the price is amazing for a little boxed set!

2-4 Year Olds

All Better is another one you may have heard about, it comes with reusable bandaids and anyone with bandaid obsessed toddlers will LOVE it. My girls are big fans!

Shine A Light: This is one of the books I always suggest because they are just so dang cool. You shine a flashlight on the page to reveal what is hidden!
We have the hospital and library one already and I am thinking of getting the Vegetable Garden one next!

I’m A Dirty Dinosaur

I Want To Be An Astronaut

3-4 Year Olds

All About Feelings – I’m a big fan of this series and how it explains heavy emotions. The illustrations are beautiful and we love the big thick pages. We also have All About Families.

Build Me A Home – A sweet story about all different kinds of homes :)

Dragon Post – One of our VERY favorite titles, this interactive book is full of letters Alex receives with advice for how to care for his new pet dragon!

I Can Do It: This is a cool new interactive book that teaches kids to tie their shoelaces, button their shirt and more … it’s on my wishlist

Nibbles: Another cult fave from Usborne – this picture book tells the store of a book monster who nibbles his way through all different mini books inside of the book. It’s so fun and interactive! And there’s now a Nibbles Numbers , Monster Hunt & Dinosaur Guide book, too!

Where Happiness Lives: The sweetest, feel good book!

And some favorites by category:

Activity Books

Ok there are so many activity books great for spending time at home or for travel!

Wipe Clean! Great for early learners, writing development and more!

Puzzles! Our puzzles come with a book! This one is for 3+ and so is this one!
