Basher Books

Have you heard of Basher books?

I’m not actually a fan, but my 7 year old son Bruce is.

I bought Bruce the Rocks and Minerals book and Periodic Table edition a year ago, and they just sat on the shelf for about six months. Then, last summer he became obsessed. He read them over and over again and started asking me a bunch of physics questions that I had no idea how to answer.

So I bribed him.

I told Bruce that if he finished all of the Classic Start books we own, that I would buy him more Basher Books. (I love bribing kids with books!)

Now we own seven Basher Books, and the only one Bruce actively dislikes is the Grammar book. (That one might be sitting on the shelf for a while.)

For those of you who have never seen a Basher Book before, they use cartoonish drawings and funny descriptions to explain nonfiction vocabulary words and concepts. I don’t particularly find them very engaging. But maybe that’s because I’m not seven!

P.S. I’m adding Basher Books to my Grandma, Please Buy This page.  Here are some links to Amazon so you can explore Basher Books for yourself:

    I’ve had Basher books on my radar for awhile now but haven’t actually purchased any yet. I may have to check them out. Thanks for the reminder.
