|We’re really looking forward to seeing THE BOOK OF LIFE. It’s such a privilege being a
Cost Plus World Market Ambassador and I’m excited to share new ideas and product selections with you.
A child’s natural curiosity and abundance of imagination are certainly delightful attributes to encourage. I love finding items to peak my son’s interest that lead him outdoors to explore new ideas or discover a different way to look at things.
This week, I put together a discovery kit fill with exclusive toys from the Cost Plus World Market Book of Life Collection. Inspired by the film, each of toys offers endless possibilities for hours of hands-on fun outdoors or in.

|Looking through Book of Life Kaleidoscope Set|
My son’s favorites include The Book of Life Kaleidoscope Set and the Book of Life Light Show. The kaleidoscope set has him mesmerized with the constant change of colors forming gorgeous artistic patterns with every slight twist of the canister. With two, he has one to share with his older brother, with friends or even with mom or dad! We both had a great time comparing and sharing kaleidoscope views on a sunny afternoon this week.

The Book of Life Light Show is also great Halloween treat for lighting up the night with some festive fun. Use the Book of Life Flashlight Picture Projector to make up your own stories to share or to use for lighting the way with fun pictures as you go trick-or-treating in your neighborhood.
