Feature: Tuttle Publishing Company + Giveaway!

Wednesday, March 18, 2015

     Hello dearies! Who here loves reading? A book worm maybe, but that doesn't matter as long as you thirst for new information I'm pretty sure you want to own a hardbound book. In this age of digital technology, most books are in form of e-books. I'm not against those gadgets and book reader apps but I confess that I still prefer the traditional way of reading. I love flipping the pages of magazines, the smell of old books in the library, colorful visuals of cook books and loads of information from reference books like dictionaries, language learning booklets, and many more!

     Months ago, Tuttle Publishing asked me if I want to feature their books and give one of them to my readers. Without a doubt, I said yes because I want to rekindle my love in studying Foreign language and I find their language learning books interesting because some includes audio disc, chart, and flash cards! When I visited Tuttle's website, I found a wide selection of books- name it they have it because they are publishing 150 new titles every year! Whew! To know more about Tuttle and the books they've sent me, click CONTINUE READING now and discover how Tuttle Publishing is Bringing People Together, One page at a Time!

     The core of Tuttle Publishing is built upon one objective: pioneering into future while building upon our past. Our fundamental values are as strong today as they were in 1948: to discover, create, publish, and deliver best -in-class books and products that bring the World closer together one page turn at a time. With Asia’s expanding economic, cultural and political influence in the world, the need for meaningful dialogue and information about this diverse and vibrant region has never been greater.​ Since 1948 Tuttle Publishing has given the world access to the cultures, visual arts, cuisines, languages, and literatures of Asia through the pages of our award-winning book.

It's colorful and the pictures are perfect for kids. This everyday words and sentences can help children learn naturally. 
  • Audio CD that provides native pronunciation of the Japanese words, and sample sentences for practice plus Japanese songs to help with learning. Learning words for Kenzo is easy because before I received this kit, he's watching Tomica die cast cars from YouTube so he is a bit familiar with simple Japanese words.

Tuttle Everyday Bento

The Bento food movement teaches us that foods can be attractive, nutritious, fun and delicious- all at the same time.Kids love to try foods that bring a smile to their faces, and will often eat things they wouldn't otherwise try.
     Besides being great fun to look at, bento lunches are a healthy way to enjoy food while keeping portions in check. Freshly-prepared lunches packed in portable, reusable boxes are also kind to the environment and easy on the wallet- very important in today's economy.
