Gift Ideas from Carson-Dellosa

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.


If you haven't finished your holiday shopping yet, then check out these great educational ideas from Carson-Dellosa! They’ve got some new fun and educational products that would make great gifts for kids this year!

They have a new line of reading and activity books for PreK and Kindergarten about a charming character called the Giant and his friends. The Giant series uses storytelling to teach children important lessons about friendship, problem solving, and doing the right thing. The activity versions of the books include games and puzzles that support fine-motor and basic skill development.

Here are some of my son's favorites from this new series:


The Giant Makes a Splash: Early Reading Activities is a unique resource for young readers, combining a humorous, full-length story about the Giant and his friends with skill-building practice activities. Topics include reading comprehension, sight words, letters and sounds, and more. In this original story, the Giant wants to ride the new Super Slide, but he is afraid of heights. Can the Giant’s friends help him face his fears and have a good time at the water park? After the story, 25 fun activities based on Common Core Standards help children understand the story and develop essential skills. With tips for parents and suggested extensions, The Giant Makes a Splash: Early Reading Activities is entertaining and educational for young readers and their families.
