Day Is Done

NEW FORMAT

Peter Yarrow, illustrated by Caldecott Honor winner Melissa Sweet A stunning version of Peter Yarrow’s tender “Day Is Done.” As animal and human parents everywhere tuck their children into bed, each child wonders: Will I be safe? Will you be there? And every mommy and daddy responds with Yarrow’s comforting refrain: “Yes, I am here.” Melissa Sweet’s gorgeous images celebrate the bonds between parent and child, as well as all creatures of the earth. Peter Yarrow is a member of the iconic ‘60s folk trio Peter, Paul & Mary. Along with Lenny Lipton, he is the author of the beloved song and now hit book Puff, the Magic Dragon. In addition to extensive touring and performing, Peter is active in Operation Respect, an organization that promotes anti-bullying awareness in schools across the country.

How to Lose a Lemur by Frann Preston-Gannon ISBN 978-1-4549-1131-9 | $14.95 ($15.95 Canada) Hardcover with Jacket | 10 ½ x 10 ½ | 32 pages (all in color) Ages: 3 to 5 | Territory: US/Can | April 1, 2014 Sterling Children’s Books

Y

ou can’t just lose a lemur in love! That’s what a little boy learns when the adoring animals start to follow him everywhere. He tries every trick to ditch the creatures, from riding a train to climbing the highest mountain. Suddenly, he realizes he’s gotten lost . . . and it’s lemurs to the rescue! Young readers will wish they could have a lemur, too.

Frann Preston-Gannon is an illustrator and designer based in south London. She graduated from Kingston University and has worked for a variety of clients including Vintage Books, Sunday Publishing, the PRCA, Spears Magazine, Pavilion Books, the London Times, and Burt’s Bees. She has written and illustrated two previous picture books, The Journey Home and Dinosaur Farm (both Pavilion Press). Frann was the first non-American illustrator selected to receive the prestigious Sendak Fellowship. This gave her the rare opportunity to encounter and be inspired by the great artist himself, explore in his treasured archives, and enjoy lectures by brilliant guest visitors.

KEY SELLING POINTS t It’s impossible not to fall under the spell of this delightfully clinging band of lemurs t Frann’s artwork is gorgeous and we should receive a lot of attention for her as the first UK recipient of the Maurice Sendak fellowship, a most prestigious prize for any up-and-coming illustrator t As Frann’s US publisher, we’ll be seeing a lot more of her in the future—including our upcoming fall 2014 publication of Dinosaur Farm

Night has come, it’s time to put the toys away—and for Little Bear to go to sleep. Come along as he gets ready, bathing, brushing, and putting on his cozy pj’s. Just one bedtime story, a tight hug, and sweet dreams, Little Bear! Little ones will cuddle and snuggle up with this soft, pillowy book.

What is baby feeling today—happy? Sad? Frustrated? Weary? Infants learn to read other people’s expressions by about 10 weeks, and these sweet black-and-white photographs will delight and engage them. Each large picture captures a very animated baby face, and simple repetitive text will encourage even the youngest children to listen and learn.

True or false? Real or fiction? FACT or FIB? Find out about science and the world around us . . . all by playing a game! Each book in this brightly illustrated and entertaining new series gives kids (and adults, too!) lots of chances to test their smarts. Each “fact or fib” features three statements—but only two are totally true, while the third is outrageously false. Make your choices, turn the page, and see whether you’re right or wrong, along with more cool facts about the topic.

Fact or Fib? A Challenging Game of True or False Kathy Furgang How much do you know about dinosaurs, bugs, and animals? Play a round of “Fact or Fib” and find out! Stegosaurus had the smallest brain of all the dinosaurs. An ant can lift a ladybug. There are about four million dogs in the world today. Which of these is true—and which isn’t?

What a treat for animal- and art-loving kids. Inside this menagerie, they’ll find wildlife and house pets, big beasts (like an elephant), and colorful birds to sketch. Some of the special creatures include a pouncing cat, a baby chimp, a camel with two humps, and an alligator about to snap its powerful jaws.

With so many adorable dogs to choose from—from a cute cocker spaniel to a friendly-looking Rottweiler—every child will be able to draw his or her favorite puppy. The variety helps build skills, as youngsters master the art of depicting bodies small and tall, long hair and short, pointy ears and floppy, and faces of every conceivable shape.

“Dinosaurs” and “kids”: when those two words come together, you know you’ve got a winner. The popularity of these prehistoric beasts just never seems to fade. So children will be thrilled to create a green, spiky Ankylosaur, a fierce-looking Baryonyx, a birdlike Coelphysis, and, of course, the great Tyrannosaurus Rex.

An adorable tiger cub. A cuddly bunny with a carrot in its paws. An irresistible penguin. Those are just a few of the cute baby creatures any child can easily draw. With the help of shaded lines to guide them, kids will create a fun menagerie, from a monkey on a log to a duckling in a puddle, to a puppy, kitten, or mouse.

Look out—sharks! And they’re coming to a page near YOU. Just grab a pencil, follow the lines, and watch them come alive. There’s a bonnethead and bluntnose; a stingray and a mako; and a leopard shark with wonderful patterns. A great white is seen from both the front and side, while others appear leaping, and in full attack mode!

With just their pencils, kids can grow a blossoming garden on the page! Kids will happily draw bluebells and chrysanthemums, daffodils and sunflowers, geraniums in a flowerpot, and more. Instructions explain the parts of the flower and provide tips on making them look realistic.

The rolling grasslands of the Great American Prairie are ideal for farming. Kansas, a major source of wheat, corn, and sunflower seeds, is also home to many airplane makers.

Midwest goods are sent around the world via the Mississippi River and a waterway system that includes the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence Seaway. Chicago, IL, is the cultural and financial center.

This region has important ports such as Baltimore, MD, and densely populated areas such as New York City. Washington, DC, is the nation’s capital but is not a state.

Captain John Smith named the green, scenic area after his homeland. Many New Englanders work in technology, insurance, colleges, and universities.

Native American and Spanish traditions are reflected in buildings, food, and lifestyle. The area boasts vast deserts, dramatic red rock canyons, oil wells, and cattle ranches.

Did you ever think that writing sentences, paragraphs, and essays is just like building a snowman? The solid chunks of snow that you gather are the strong sentences that you start with. Now pack those chunks together to form well-rounded paragraphs (or snowballs!). Then, carefully pile them on top of each other until you have an entire snowman or an essay about snowmen or an essay about anything you want to write about!

Crops like tobacco, cotton, and fruits and vegetables thrive in the warm climate here. Mild weather draws vacationers and retirees.

Consider Capitalization

Sentences are the building blocks of writing. There are some key things to remember in writing a good sentence, like this one:

It is very important to capitalize words correctly, or the meaning of a sentence can be lost. Without correct capitalization, the sentence to the left might look like this:

Make It Agree

The fat, old cat stretched out on the sofa. Use a comma to separate items in a list:

We need milk, butter, and eggs to make the cake.

Saturday is the best day of the week. Use a period after abbreviations or initials in a name:

The subject of a sentence tells you who or what the sentence is about. The verb tells you what the subject is doing or being. Together, the subject and the verb make up the core of a sentence. In a sentence it’s important that the subject and verb “match.” The subject in the above sentence is day. The verb in the above sentence is was.

The dog jumps.

Punctuate It!

Use an apostrophe in a contraction to show where the missing letter or letters used to be:

Finding Word Friends

A dictionary is a reference book you use to look up information about words. Word entries appear in alphabetical order in a dictionary. Each entry begins with the correct spelling of the word, followed by the word’s pronunciation, use as a part of speech, history, meaning, and any other forms of the words. Here is an entry for door:

A thesaurus is a type of dictionary in which you will find words with meanings similar to the word you look up. These similar words are called synonyms. By finding and using synonyms, your writing becomes better with this different, more interesting language. Rather than saying that someone was happy, you can look up the word happy in a thesaurus and find words like glad and joyful. Here you will also find words that mean the opposite of happy. These types of words are called antonyms. In the same thesaurus entry, you’ll find the antonym unhappy.

Capitalize official titles or positions when they come in front of a person’s name:

Dr. Spock

Mrs. Robinson

Captain Hook

Capitalize holidays, festivals, and special events:

Christmas

Kwanzaa

Valentine’s Day

Capitalize the first word in the greeting or closing of a letter:

My dear Aunt Sally,

Sincerely yours,

˙ \ noun [Middle English dure, dor, door \ ‘dor from Old English duru door & dor gate] 1: a usually swinging or sliding barrier by which an entry is closed or opened 2: a means of access or participation: OPPORTUNITY <opens new doors> <door to success> — doorless adjective

FLASH FACT: An idiom is an expression whose meaning cannot be understood from the meanings of the words in the statement. Example: It’s Greek to me. (This sentence actually means, “It’s too difficult for me to understand.”)

Fractions and Decimals Equivalent Fractions: Everythingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Equal

Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Take a Break

TM

The word fraction comes from a Latin word meaning â&#x20AC;&#x153;break.â&#x20AC;? A fraction is a piece or part of something whole. It can be a part of a number, a thing, or a group. This group of milkshakes is also a group of fractions. The whole group is made of four shakes. Each one of the four shakes makes up one-fourth of the total group. Each shake is a fraction of the whole group of shakes. Decimals and percents are also parts of something whole. All three ways of looking at parts of a whole are helpful.

Comparing Fractions: A Hard-Boiled Shortcut When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re comparing fractions, you can either make the denominators match, as shown on the previous page, or you can use a handy shortcut called cross-multiplication.

Sometimes fractions that look different can stand for the same amounts. Such fractions are called equivalent fractions.

Both the orange cabinets and the orange drawers equal one-fourth of their groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total storage space. So 1/4 and 5/20 are equivalent fractions.

Factors and Fractions A factor is a number that can be divided evenly into another number. All numbers can be divided by 1 and themselves, so all numbers have at least two factors. Some numbers have more. The numbers that can be divided by only 1 and themselves are called prime numbers. The numbers that have more factors are called composite numbers. At right is a table of the factors of composite numbers from 1 to 50. â&#x2013;ś

Common Denominators

Different Denominators

If you want to add or subtract fractions with a common denominator, just add or subtract the numerators. The denominator doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change.

Say you want to add or subtract fractions with different denominators, like these:

You may be surprised that 1/10 is bigger. The bigger the denominator, the more parts something has been divided into, and the smaller each piece is. Cut a piece of paper into four equal pieces. Now cut another paper of the same size into eight equal pieces. Which pieces are bigger?

First, make the denominators match. To do this, create equivalent fractions that have the same denominator. The denominator of the new fractions will be the lowest common denominator (LCD) of the original fractions. You can find the denominator for your new fractions in three steps. 1. Find the GCF of the denominators.

CONGRESS

Try and Try Again After the Declaration of Independence was signed, delegates had to decide how the United States should be run. Rules for a new U.S. government were written in a document called the Articles of Confederation. However, the new system of government made 13 separate states rather than one nation. Delegates met in 1787 at a Constitutional Convention to improve the Articles.

The Constitution The delegates at the Constitutional Convention decided to replace the Articles of Confederation. The new system of government they invented was described in a document called the Constitution. The new federal (national) government was stronger than the state governments. However, to make sure that the federal government did not become too strong, power was divided into three branches: executive, judicial, and legislative.

People have been writing down their thoughts for more than 5,000 yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;on clay, stone, wax, animal skins, paper, and almost every other flat surface they could find. Writing down your thoughts wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work if nobody can read them, though. Neat handwriting will make sure that people understand what you have to say. All it takes is a little practice.

Executive Branch

Congress meets in Washington, DC, in the U.S. Capitol Building. It is responsible for writing, debating, and passing laws. Congress also has other powers: tIt controls trade (the buying and selling of products and services) between states and also between the U.S. and other nations. tIt approves the minting, or making, of money. tIt can declare war on other countries.

In 1774, representatives, or delegates, from 12 of the 13 American colonies assembled in Philadelphia, at a meeting called the Continental Congress, to debate independence from Great Britain. In 1775, the delegates chose Thomas Jefferson to write a document telling Britain that the American colonies had decided to become a free nation. Jeffersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s document, called the Declaration of Independence, was signed by the delegates on July 4, 1776. The declaration contained shocking new ideas for the time. It said that instead of being ruled by kings, people had the right to live as they pleased and to govern themselves the way they thought best. The American colonies had to win a war with Britain before they became free. Since then, Americans have considered the Declaration of Independence the first official statement of American values of democracy and liberty.

Fractions are easier to use when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re reduced to their lowest terms. Do this by locating the factors of both the numerator and denominator. (Use the chart on page 1.) Find the biggest number they share. This is called their greatest common factor. We can call this the GCF.

A proper fraction has a value of less than 1. This means that its numerator (or top) is smaller than its denominator (or bottom).

â&#x2013;˛

Carton A

Multiply the numerator of one fraction by the denominator of the other fraction. Do this to both fractions, as shown at right. Then compare the numbers you have found. The fraction whose numerator makes the greater number is the greater fraction.

1 (numerator) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 4 (denominator)

In carton B, 3 out of 8 are 3 brown brown. Carton B has â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 8 eggs. Which carton has the

3 x 3=â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 9 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 4 x 3 =12 3 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 4

Fraction Action When you cut an orange into quarters or play one-half of a basketball game, you are seeing fractions in action. A fraction consists of two numbers on top of each other. The number on the bottom is the total number of pieces in the whole. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called the denominator. The number on the top tells how many pieces of the whole youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called the numerator.

In carton A, 5 out of 12 eggs are brown. In other words, carton A 5 brown eggs. has â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 12

greater fraction?

To create equivalent fractions, multiply the numerator and denominator by the same number. For instance, to make an equivalent fraction for 3/4, you could multiply the numerator and the denominator by 3:
