DO YOU REALLY WANT
TO MEET. . . ?

1, 2, 3. . . COUNT WITH ME
These colorful counting books increase number familiarity
and counting skills, while introducing fun facts about
popular early childhood topics. Each spread clearly
displays the featured number, plus photographs to depict
that number of objects.

Those animals in the zoo look cute and cuddly . . . but
what if you met them face-to-face in the wild? Booklist
says: “Animal-obsessed little ones will likely find these
books both informative and wanderlust inducing.”

POISONOUS ANIMALS

FREAKY NATURE

All of these animals—from the mostly innocent black
widow spider to the deadly taipan snake—have one thing
in common: they use venom, or poison, for defense. Read
about how they fit into their ecosystems.

Animals that really mutate. Parasites that turn their hosts
into zombies. Animals with a “sixth sense.” Inspired by
comics and pop culture, these kid-friendly books introduce
readers to the biology of freaky happenings in the natural
world.

UNEXPLAINED:
WHAT’S THE EVIDENCE?

GROW YOUR FOOD
If you really wanted to grow a pizza from scratch, you’d
need a wheat field, a cow, a pig, a vegetable garden . . .
and you’d run out of room quickly! The sensible narrator in
each book advises the child gardeners to start small, and
they all gain an appreciation for fresh ingredients and food
origins by the end of the book.

Now in paperback, four titles in this best-selling series
examine the evidence—or lack thereof—for these
supernatural legends. Booklist calls the series “solid
stuff for teaching high interest critical thinking.” Curious
minds want to know: are these things real? Read and
decide for yourself!
