Workman Publishing Company The Mini-Express (Board Book)

The big engines that rumble--or the little engine that could--have a real fascination for the youngest readers. And not only do children like reading about trains, or watching them in videos (think Thomas the Tank Engine), but they love pla...ying with toy trains. Enter The Mini-Express, the latest Mini Wheels Book, the new series of board-books-as-vehicles from the creator of the 2.2-million-copy bestselling Mini House Book? series.The natural companion to Mini School Bus and Mini Fire Truck, The Mini-Express takes readers on a fun-filled ride aboard a chunky and colorful die-cut steam engine. With the hiss of steam and clackity-clack of wheels on the track, the rhyming verse tells the story of Engineer Hoot and his crew of hardworking mice. Peter Lippmans energetic illustrations bring the characters and text to life on every page, and real working wheels keep The Mini-Express on the go--across the floor, and through a childs imagination. All aboard!

Kids love origami?and what could be cooler than transforming a piece of paper into Boba Fett, Princess Leia, Yoda, or R2-D2? And n...ot just any paper, but custom-designed paper illustrated with art from the movies. Star Wars Origami marries the fun of paper folding with the obsession of Star Wars. Like The Joy of Origami and Origami on the Go, this book puts an original spin on an ancient art. And like Star Wars Scanimation and Star Wars Fandex, it?s a fresh take on Star Wars mania. Chris Alexander is a master folder and founder of the popular website StarWarsOrigami.com, and here are 36 models, clearly explained, that range in difficulty from Youngling (easy) to Padawan (medium), Jedi Knight (difficult), and Jedi Master (tricky!). A front section introduces origami definitions and basic folds. Bound in the back is the book?s unique folding paper, two sheets for each figure. Illustrated with original art, it makes each creation?the essential lightsabers, the Death Star, and much more?true to the movies. Star Wars Origami includes a foreword by Tom Angleberger, author of the New York Times bestsellers The Strange Case of Origami Yoda and Darth Paper Strikes Back, and is scheduled to be published at the same time as Angleberger?s upcoming book, The Secret of the Fortune Wookiee.

Once before, we introduced a brand-new idea with a challenge: You wont believe your eyes. The book was Gallop!, the technology was... Scanimation-, and the result was a bestseller. Now were back with another dazzling idea, and this time for the whole family: The book is Safari, it uses never-before-seen Photicular technology, and the result is breathtaking. Safari is a magical journey. Readers, as if on safari, encounter eight wild animals that come alive. Using an innovative lenticular-based technology, precision sliding lenses, and original four-color video imagery, each image is like a 3-D movie on the page, delivering a rich, fluid, immersive visual experience. The cheetah bounds. The gazelle leaps. The African elephant snaps its ears. The gorilla munches the leaves off a branch. Its mesmerizing, as visually immediate as a National Geographic or Animal Planet special. Accompanying the images is Safari, the guide: It begins with an evocative journal of a safari along the Mara River in Kenya and interweaves the history of safaris. Then for each animal there is a lively, informative essay and an at-a-glance list of important facts. Its the romance of being on safariand the almost visceral thrill of seeing the animals in motion in a book unlike any other.

From Sandra Boynton?as it could only come from Boynton?an inventive new exuberant jumble of a book for the young reader. Amazing C...ows is a picture book, a storybook, a book of fun and games?it?s all those things in one. Plus it even shows you how to find the startling recording of Maurice Ravel?s ?Bolero Completely Unraveled for Orchestra and Kazoos? performed by Sandra Boyton and The Highly Irritating Orchestra. (Running time is 17:14, but seems MUCH longer.) A work of pure obsession, Amazing Cows celebrates cows and offbeat cowness with a miscellany of cow stories, cow poems, cow jokes, and other bovine ephemera. Along the way, expect lively guest appearances by ducks, pigs, and excessive numbers of chickens. There?s a song: It Had to Be Moo. A game: Find the Hidden Cows. Famous Barnyard Composers (surely you?ve heard of Wolfgang Amadeus Moozart and Johann Sebastian Bockbockbock). Knock-knock jokes, a cow myth, and an Amazing Cow comic-book adventure: Trouble on Zebblor 7. Cow fashion. Cow Limericks. How to Speak Cow. Plus so much mooer. Amazing Cows is full-color, 96 pages long, and packed with the kind of silly fun that young readers adore, especially when they can read it to themselves?and then read it to their parents, and then to their little brothers, and then to the family dog. Or the family cow.

Mark Kurlansky, beloved author of the award-winning bestseller Cod: A Biography of the Fish That Changed the World, offers a rivet...ing new book for kids about whats happening to fish, the oceans, and our environment, and what, armed with knowledge, kids can do about it. Written by a master storyteller, World Without Fish connects all the dotsbiology, economics, evolution, politics, climate, history, culture, food, and nutritionin a way that kids can really understand. It describes how the fish we most commonly eat, including tuna, salmon, cod, and swordfish, could disappear within 50 years, and the domino effect it would haveoceans teeming with jellyfish and turning pinkish orange from algal blooms; seabirds disappearing, then reptiles, then mammals. It describes the back-and-forth dynamic of fishermen and scientists. It covers the effects of industrialized fishing, and how bottom-dragging nets are turning the ocean floor into a desert. The answer? Support sustainable fishing. World Without Fish tells kids exactly what they can do: Find out where those fish sticks come from. Tell your parents whats good to buy, and whats not. Ask the waiter if the fish on the menu is line-caught And follow simple rules: Use less plastic, and never eat endangered fish like bluefin tuna. Interwoven with the book is a full-color graphic novel. Each beautifully illustrated chapter opener links to form a larger fictional story that complements the text. Hand in hand, they create a Silent Spring for a new generation.
