Another GREAT box was sent to me for review purposes from Lerner - I LOVE to see the new books and let you in on all the ones NOT TO MISS!!
Lisa Wheeler has done it again with Dino-Baseball - dinosaur and baseball lovers are SURE to enjoy this great read. It rhymes - which kids love, and is a wonderful addition to Dino-Hockey and Dino-Soccer.
Noah's Bark by Stephen Krensky left me laughing - yes, that noise on the ark must have been something - but Noah, smart as he is, had a great idea in this book for how to solve the noise problem! Very fun!
What is it about the "color" books that we just can not keep them on our library shelves?? This new series in Lightning Bolt Books will be no exception. Red Everywhere is just one of the titles that will have teachers and kids alike "seeing red."
The Elsewhere Chronicles continue with Book Four: The Calling - I have to say, these books are pretty popular here. This is a graphic novel series but even our younger readers are enjoying it - and they are clean graphic novels - you can recommend them without worrying!
A new series IS THAT A FACT? takes a fun look at questions - it makes learning intriguing - I'm always on the lookout for that. There are five books so far in this series - questions about animals, Earth, Health, Space and one last one - questions you've always wanted to ask. This looks good - will appeal to our middle grade readers.
The Horrors of Andersonville: Life and Death Inside a Civil War Prison by Catherine Gourley is quite a read. I KNOW I will be able to "sell" this one easily. Civil War buffs (ok and even those that aren't) will find this title appealing. I was immediately interested when I started looking through this book - it has actual photographs, letters, diary entries - very intriguing history.
