Editor’s Note
Dear Educator,By 2014-15, the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) will have been adopted into the majority of schools across theUnited States. How will this change affect
 your 
classroom? At Random House, Inc., we are committed to providingyou with the right books, materials, and information you need to make this transition. With this in mind, I’m pleased topresent our new Language Arts & Social Studies 2013 Catalog.With the CCSS’s emphasis on narrative non-fiction, I encourageyou to turn to page 2 to browse our top recommendations. In additionto hand-selecting the best books for CCSS, we are also working hard toincorporate the Standards into many of our new and existing teacher’sguides, which are indicated throughout this catalog.Is bullying a problem in your school? Turn to page 7 to read amessage from Emily Bazelon, author of the forthcoming book,
Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy.
