Sylvan Dell Does it Again!

Another box of fabulous math/science titles - I just can't say enough good about Sylvan Dell. Check out these new Fall titles.

Moose and Magpie by Bettina Restrepo and illustrated by Sherry Rogers
It is not often that you can find a fun book to teach you about the finer points of being a moose - this book is excellent for that! Moose and Magpie learn from each other and keep life fun. You will enjoy this one and so will your kids.

Mother Osprey: Nursery Rhymes for Buoys and Gulls by Lucy Nolan and illustrated by Connie McLennan is such a fun find. Nursery rhymes - all with a nautical theme - I love it!! It is fun and yet teaches all sorts of great things about oceans and ocean life.

What's New at the Zoo? by Suzanne Slade and illustrated by Joan Waites
I think this would be a great title for a zoo theme - it is a fun read that takes you on a trip through the zoo but ALSO has you doing math - addition - at the same time. That is what I so enjoy about Sylvan Dell's titles - they are so often not just covering one topic, but two at the same time - their books are usable over and over!

Count Down to Fall by Fran Hawk and illustrated by Sherry Neidigh
Fall is on it's way and this title will be a super one for all teachers looking for a new title to add to their fall unit. Again, a counting book, but also a look at trees, wildlife, and how fall affects us all. I will be using this one in my fall story hours.

And don't forget their website that is just FULL of great "extras" for each book - classroom ideas, websites, teaching ideas, and more!!
