Description :

Redbird (board book series)
Barney Saltzberg’s irrepressible and imaginative books—Good Egg, Beautiful Oops!, Arlo Needs Glasses, and A Little Bit of Oomph!, combine distinctive art, a lively spirit, and paper engineering to bring great joy to kids (and grown-ups, too). Now Barney is launching a new series of board books about a character named Redbird. With his long orange beak, red body, and friendly expression, Redbird calls to mind Dr. Seuss’s offbeat heroes and Boynton’s zany barnyard creatures, while embodying the author’s signature playful style.

REDBIRD: COLORS, COLORS EVERYWHERE! and REDBIRD: FRIENDS COME IN DIFFERENT SIZES.

Transforming Preschool
According to recent research, the best way to make new connections in a child's brain is by building on existing knowledge. Children who loves books will listen to them repeatedly, maintaining their interest. Using a selected book for a number of consecutive preschool storytimes, but presenting it differently each time, can help children learn new skill sets. This book presents a new approach to storytime, one that employs repetition with variety to create an experience which helps children connect and engage with the story on a higher level with everything you need to create and implement a successful, elevated storytime.

More than a dozen WWII-era German U-boats remain unaccounted for, the fate of their crews unknown. In summer 2012, sonar scanning found a submerged vessel of the right dimensions in Canadian province of Labrador. From this find grew Bill Bunn’s teen adventure, Kill Shot. Fully fictional, the story switches between the events of the war that led the German crew to submerge and eventually die in the river, and the adventures that occur seventy years later when a teen boy finds the remains of the vessel and crew.
