Who wants to learn basic physical concepts from a boring human? The Dinosaur School series employs dozens of wildly colored, wide-eyed, gleefully grinning, computer-illustrated dinos to illustrate the most elementary of first lessons. This is all about clarity: the bright characters cavort across plain white pages, while a brief sentence in large font makes a single declaration. Both pages in each spread play off each other to highlight the two opposing concepts. … Occasionally ending with visual glossaries, this is fine sit-and-learn stuff for the tiniest tykes. — BOOKLIST

An opening chapter invites readers to imagine themselves as the featured animal, either in fanciful terms (Would you become an incredible drummer if you were an octopus?) or more fact-based ones (Your back legs are so weak that you can’t walk) as a sloth. The imagination motif is reprised periodically, mixed neatly into straight descriptions of the distinct characteristics of each animal. Full-page photographs alongside each page of straightforward text are generally high quality and often quite effective at highlighting key features and behaviors, such as a toucan’s fruit-eating technique. —SLJ SERIES MADE SIMPLE

What You Didn’t Know About History

Reading Level: 2–3 Interest Level: 2–5

History books don’t often ask questions. They just state information. But history lovers usually have lots to ask: How do we know the Thanksgiving in 1621 was the first? Why did the Pilgrims choose present-day Massachusetts for their settlement? Was an order given to start the shooting that became the Boston Massacre? Readers will learn the answers to these questions and more as they find out many details often left out of traditional history books. Historical images enhance the surprising content while fact boxes flesh out the social studies content even further. As it turns out, there’s a lot we don’t know about history!
