<DIV>The first new idea in maze books since Egyptian times. Originally self- published, <I>Mummy Mazes</I> has won awards and seal...s of approval from Dr. Toy, The National Parenting Center, Independent Publishers, and <I>Creative Child Magazine</I>. <br><br>Written and drawn by Elizabeth Carpenter, <I>Mummy Mazes</I> is ingeniously designed to open up to 28 poster-size pages?these are deliciously big mazes, the kind kids will pore over for hours. There are mummies, monuments, and intricate murals, ancient gods and the Pharaoh?s mask, scarabs, an Egyptian night sky, and the Giant Sphinx who guards the pyramid complex at Giza. The meticulously drawn mazes lead kids through hieroglyphics, cracks in the limestone, detailed wall paintings, and more. Adding to the fun, each maze is linked by an adventure?the reader joins Professor Archie Ologist on an expedition from the Colossi of Memnon into the heart of long-lost tombs, learning along the way about the cat-goddess Bastet, why both men and women wore wigs, and how much linen it sometimes took to wrap an important mummy (three miles? worth!). Once all the mazes are completed, there?s a hieroglyphic puzzle to solve at the end?and then the whole doubles as a coloring book. The pages are perforated to tear, color, and then display on the wall. </DIV> Read More

<DIV> Little kids love to count. Little kids love counting books, too. And little kids also love manipulatives- tactile objects di...sguised as educational tools that are pleasing to the touch and a joy to play with. Now add them together, and the result is the all-but irresistible 10 Button Book.<P> Created by celebrated folk artist William Accorsi, 10 Button Book is the gutsiest, most interactive of counting books. Ingeniously designed, it combines a double-thick board book with ten colorful, government safety-tested plastic buttons attached by ten strong colorful ribbons, all bound into the spine. The object is simple. On spread one - One button Billy kids take one of the buttons and snap it into the die-cut holes, in this case filling out the "eyes" of a character's face. And so on, up to Ten buttons on his nose, where kids fill in the inverted pyramid of buttons over a juggler's head. The rhyming text is simple and energetic; the illustrations are dynamic collages made of cut felt. Little kids learning to count (and those who already know their one-to-tens) will be popping the buttons in and out, again and again. And undoubtedly there to help in the fun will be the kids who are their parents.</DIV></P> Read More

<DIV> Kids never stop asking questions. And Kathy Wollard, whose Los Angeles Times syndicated column "How come?" appears in newspa...pers around the world, never stops answering them. In five years since the first How Come? was published, Ms. Wollard has written hundreds of columns addressing the whys, whats, wheres, and hows sent in by her readers.<P> A direct follow-up to the original How Come?, How Come? Planet Earth is packed with lively, engagingly written, and often wittily illustrated answers to questions that kids have about the natural world around them. There are questions about animals - Why are electric eels electrical? (the charges not only help them find their way around in the dark, but act as a defense system). About human body - Where does the fat go when you lose weight? (it's burned up inside the muscles for energy). About Earth science - Why are storm clouds gray? (they contain a lot of water, which absorbs more sunlight than an ordinary cloud does, so storm clouds appear ominously dark). And just about everyday stuff - How do they make chewing gum? Why are diamonds the hardest material on Earth? Why do dogs bark?<P> For all kids who want to know (and all kids want to know), and for the parents who can't always explain it to them (no parents know every answer), How Come? Planet Earth is the perfect reference and companion. <P><P></DIV></P></P></P></P> Read More
