This creatively designed board book is die-cut to resemble the profile of a medieval European castle. Opened, it displays both board and standard paper pages. Turning the front cover is like opening the castle gate to show the complexity of structures and in-habitants inside the castle’s great stone walls. Young readers will discover workshops, towers, and ramparts for defense against attackers, courtyards, stables, living quarters, a chapel, and the grand room where the king and queen hold court. Here is a child’s intro-duction to medieval history, attractively illustrated in full color, and with board pages that cut away to reveal the castle’s deepest interior. Also described and illustrated are the swords and weapons of the king’s army, knights in armor, jousting matches, and medie-val festivals. Kids will love this book, which can also serve as a stimulating classroom supplement. (Ages 8-12)

Read Review

“Learning how and under what circumstances to approach a dog are vital lessons for your child. It can mean the difference between a lifelong love of animals or a lifelong fear. This book provides children with an excellent introduction to understanding dog behavior.”-Dr. Hugh J. Wirth, AM, KSJ, BVSc (Melb), FAVA-veterinarian and president, RSPCA Australia

This nonfiction picture book aims to teach children how to behave safely around dogs and thereby hopefully reduce the risk of being bitten.

The text takes children through a series of situations in which it would be inadvisable to pat a dog, and then teaches them how to pat a dog correctly and how to deal with situations in which dogs can get out of control.

Most of us take for granted the Earth’s crust, the thin outer layer of the planet that forms the continents and ocean floors. Formed 4.5 billion years ago, and still moving and growing today, the crust of the Earth is made of a huge variety of rocks and minerals. This book explores and explains the world of rocks and minerals, beginning with a look at the structure of the Earth and the ways in which minerals are formed. Neil Grant then goes on to explain topics such as identifying minerals, volcanoes and lava, fossils, gems, building a rock collection, and the formation of coal and oil beneath the Earth’s surface. With beautiful illustrations on every page, Rocks and Minerals is an educational and colorful guide to planet Earth.
