JUVENILE CHICKEN DANCE

BEGIN SMART is not just another book program. It addresses children’s needs to engage on many levels. Early childhood research shows that children learn through different modalities. In order to learn about the world, kids need to take in information through all of their senses—eyes, ears, fingers, mouths, and noses—and they need to manipulate objects. All the books are designed to be interactive. By structuring a program developmentally, Begin Smart helps them make sense of the disordered array of reading choices they often face in the marketplace. Begin Smart is a gift of learning—not only for children under three, but also for their parents.

Written by Tammi Sauer, illustrated by Dan Santat Meet Marge and Lola, chickens on a mission: to win tickets for the Elvis Poultry Show! But their toughest competition is a pack of menacing ducks. Can our two feisty chicks show those quackers how to rock’ n’ roll the barnyard? Tammi Sauer and Dan Santat have whipped up a giddy, goofy romp where cows fly over the moon, ducks surf in a water trough, and one very familiar-looking rooster gets all shook up!

Author: HARRIET ZIEFERT began her career as a teacher, then entered the publishing field where she developed a curriculum for kindergarteners. For the past 25 years she has been writing books for young children. As an author, her main focus has been to create age-appropriate content, in an age-appropriate format—content that considers kids’ emotional and intellectual development together. In the past five years Harriet has focused on the question: What is age-appropriate content for babies? Begin Smart™ books are the result of many years of experience with young children, including the study of infant development at the Psychoanalytic Institute of New York.

Cause and effect is a concept that children learn slowly over time. One of the first instances a baby learns is that a pushed button usually produces a sound. Gradually, they will also learn: a bee flies and it buzzes, a propeller goes around and it whirrs, water is turned on and it whooshes, a jack-in-the-box pops up and everyone expresses surprise.

eebee’s™ ADVENTURES HERE TO THERE An Up, Down, and All-Around Adventure

Pierre Le Gall, illustrated by Éric Héliot

eebee™ and fellow baby explorers are on the go in this action-packed adventure for the toddler set. Standing, stepping, sliding, climbing, crawling, and clambering through the universe of their own home, up steps and over shaggy pillows, they have firsthand (arms, legs, and feet!) experiences with spatial concepts.

In Constance and Tiny the irrepressible scamp ran away only to get dragged back home. Now her scheming parents are sending her off to a terrible, horrible place: a BOARDING SCHOOL! There, the rules are strict, the bathwater’s cold, and the food’s horrid. Worst of all, her beloved cat Tiny can’t come along. But canny Constance has a plan!

eebee’s™ ADVENTURES MAKE IT HAPPEN A Hands-on Adventure with Opposites

Pierre Le Gall, illustrated by Éric Héliot

eebee™ and playmates celebrate the fact that every baby learns through play and interaction. On each page, curious toddlers join eebee™ to MAKE IT HAPPEN by exploring UP and DOWN through a game of baby bowling; ON and OFF with a flashlight; WET and DRY with a rubber duckie and a towel; and OPEN and CLOSED with this very book.

Constance is a mischief-making, rule-breaking imp with a wicked gleam in her eye. Wherever she goes, trouble (and her enormous cat, Tiny) surely follow. Making the delicious Constance stories even more fun: the comic contrast between the deadpan text and the outrageous illustrations. Like the cheeky character herself, the pictures always say the opposite of the words themselves!

Plus, kids will love the die-cut, gatefolds, and other cool surprises throughout!

GRIMM’S FAIRY TALES

Illustrated by Ed Shems

Jakob & Wilhelm Grimm

Based on the brothers’ first volume of folk tales, Children’s and Household Stories, this collection features many of the Grimms’ most popular retellings, as well as some lesser-known ones. With art by the brilliant Scott McKowen, this classic collection features tales that include “The Frog Prince,” “Rumpelstiltskin,” “Rapunzel,” “The Fisherman and his Wife,” “Tom Thumb,” and many others.

Why did the chicken cross the playground? To get to the other slide. What do you call Tyrannosaurus rex when it wears a cowboy hat and boots? Tyrannosaurus Tex. And why will kids love this collection? Because it’s laugh-out-loud funny, filled with just the kind of jokes they love, and illustrated with colorful, action-packed pictures by best-selling artist Hans Wilhelm. Every page is a blast!

FLY, SANTA, FLY!

INSPECTOR FORSOOTH’S MINI-MYSTERIES

Betty Ann Schwartz, illustrated by Steve Cox

Derrick Niederman, illustrated by Nathan Huang

Whirl the disc and fly with Santa to the North Pole! What a ride it is, as every turn of the wheel transports wide-eyed kids to a new magical place. The merry Christmas tale begins in Santa’s workshop, where he’s ready to soar to the skies in his sled. And when Santa’s all done delivering toys to good boys and girls, give one more spin and fly, Santa, fly…away home. Merry Christmas!

These fun mini-mysteries will captivate budding sleuths…and have them searching the pages carefully for clues. Some of the stories feature actual crimes, others playfully deal with everyday conundrums, but they’re all engagingly clever. And even though each one makes a satisfying who-and how-dunit on its own, when taken together they form an entertaining summertime novel, too.
