A Fun Goodwill Find {& A $25 Giveaway!}

I have to say that I feel like someone has been holding out on me. I’ve heard of Dover Books of course, and have a passing knowledge of their company. I remember a few of their books from my school years, and my boys are big fans of their sticker and activity books.

However, I just recently discovered how awesome they were. This might be old news to everyone but me.

I’m an avid goodwill shopper and I usually head straight for the books (and then the clothes, and then the household stuff…you know how that goes). The nearest goodwill is at least an hour away, so that’s probably why I’m crazy excited when I get the chance to go.

Anyway, here is my goodwill treasure, that I got for $.50.

It’s this really neat coloring book that has beautiful illustrations to be colored, along with descriptions and educational information on each page. The drawings are great, and I thought it would be nice to have a second one for use in our homeschool, so the boys could each have their own.

So, I went to Dover’s website to see if I could order another Woodlands Indians coloring book. And oh my word!

I spent about an hour discovering the awesomeness at Dover. I truly had no idea the scope of their products, and feel like I’ve uncovered a treasure. I placed my first $50 order (to get free shipping), and I still have a long wishlist!

Dover Books & Educational Coloring Books

While I was searching for that Woodlands Indians coloring book, I found many more educational coloring books, in a wide variety of topics. Seriously, I can’t even list them all here…but I’ll list a few of my favorites because I just can’t help myself. Now remember, these are all educational coloring books.

Believe it or not…this is just a small sampling!

I also found lots of other children’s books, lots of nonfiction, etc. Just lots of fun stuff there!


You may have surmised from some of my other posts that I have a fascination with America’s history. Particularly those western pioneer days. So, this book was a gem for me! I’m excited for myself to get this book and look through the ads Mr. Olymer has compiled.

There were many more great books in all subject matters.

After I looked through the many educational coloring books, and books in all subjects, I found that they also offer fun-filled collections of products in different themes.

Their kits and products are exactly the kind of learning materials we love to use in our homeschool–the ones that incorporate real life into learning, and make it accessible and meaningful to our children. They are learning through meaningful activities and fun rather than busywork.

I will definitely be heading back to Dover when it’s time to shop for homeschool curriculum.

    I’d like to add some extra variety to our homeschool curriculum. Thanks for the chance to win :)

  3. Shannon Alexander says

    I would love to win this because I have been eying these Dover books for quite awhile. I have different ones picked out for unit studies for each of my school aged kids

  4. says

    I’ve barely even started looking at their site and already I’ve seen a half-dozen things that I want to look at closer. What an amazing find! If I won, I’d have my work cut out for me to decide what to get.

  5. Faith Robeson says

    I would like to win so I could get some things for my friend who is homeschooling. She was diagnosed with stage 4 bile duct cancer in March and her partner will need all the help she can raising the kids when she passes. I thought it would be nice to get the girls something to keep their mind off that fact. (the girls are adopted when they were young from a drug mother and a very violent background) This loss is going to be very hard for everyone.

  6. says

    I’d love to win because I never heard of Dover, but they look like something that would really enhance my son’s upcoming study of American history! Thanks for the giveaway!

  7. Jessica says

    I would love to win so I can include some of these wonderful books in our homeschool this coming year.

  8. Jasmine A. says

    I’d love to win because I really enjoy Dover’s products. I have a couple of their coloring books and I’ve actually never colored in them since I tend to use them more as books. What a great giveaway! Thank you for the chance to win!
