Inuit Tools

Inhabit Media

Uses unique Inuit items to teach counting and cultural literacy

• Co-op available

This counting book uses everyday Inuit tools to teach babies rudimentary counting skills. From items that are familiar to many North Americans, such as kayaks, sleds, and spears, to lesser-known tools, such as the ulu and a stone cooking lamp, this book is a culturally unique counting book for any parent looking to expose their children to the culture of the Arc- tic. The book contains Inuktitut words in syllabics, one of two common writing systems used by Inuktitut speakers, and also includes the same In- uktitut words written in Roman orthography and English, so that non-In- uktitut speakers will be able to sound out the Inuktitut terms.

ANT AND BEE

Angela Banner

First published in 1950, the Ant and Bee titles have been a favorite of vintage children’s book hunters. These delightful, much-loved characters will be instantly recognizable to many parents and grandparents today. The beauty of these simple stories is that they are designed for an older sibling or parent to teach their child how to read. Using word recognition techniques, the Ant and Bee stories provide an alternative to phonics learning. Original author and creator Angela Banner has reillustrated the Ant and Bee books, and Egmont UK is proud to be bringing these cherished classics back into print.

Angela Banner first wrote Ant and Bee as a way to teach her son how to read. The first book in the series was published in 1950. Since then, Angela has written 22 Ant and Bee books.

It’s raining—again!—and Noah and the animals are bored. So they play an extremely silly game of hide-and-seek.

“The animals are cleverly illustrated cious variety.” —Kirkus Reviews

and the rich vocabulary offers some deli-

Noah can’t find so much as a feather, although he’s searched the ark from top to bot- tom for his playmates. There’s only one place left they could be, and that’s the room with the sign on the door that says NO ANIMALS—Mr. and Mrs. Noah’s bedroom. When Noah opens the door, the room is suspiciously empty

But who’s that wriggling under the duvet?

Llamas in pyjamas and baboons in pink pantaloons!

And who’s that squashed behind the chest of drawers?

Bears in flares and wombats in combats!

Lift 25 double-sided flaps and a large fold-out flap on the final page to reveal the ani- mals hiding, dressed ridiculously in Mr. and Mrs. Noah’s clothes!

Peter Bently’s other books include Noisy Noisy Astronauts and A Shark in the Dark. Lynne Chapman has illustrated more than 30 children’s books, including Big Bad Wolf is Good, Class Two at the Zoo, Open Wide!, Smudge’s Grumpy Day, and When Cows Come Home for Christmas.

Roland Harvey

The Wombats are off to the zoo in another zany adventure featuring the 12 comical kids and their two teachers, with lively and detailed watercolor illustrations guaranteed to occupy small children’s atten- tions for hours

“The real star here is the dizzying artwork, sort of a watercolor take on Where’s Waldo? that invites any reader to scrutinize the jam- packed scenes for the details mentioned by the children. There’s so much going on that everyone will find something different.” —Booklist on In the City

The Wombats and their teachers, Ms. Annabel and Mrs. Nott, are off to the zoo. Audrey bonds with bilbies, Alecia is on a safari, Hughie wants to

race a camel, and Freddie explores underwater with his magic eye. Horrie is shocked by snakes, and Ima plays harmonica with a crocodile. Ava whistles to the wild dogs, Naucia wants to take a meerkat home, and Nurse Sardi helps in the animal hospital. Dante shoots hoops with the seals. Oliver admires the cheetah, and Albert calculates just how much hippo they can eat. By the end of the day, the Wombats don’t want to leave. Can you help Mrs. Nott find out where they all went?

Roland Harvey is the author of At the Beach, Everything We Ever Saw, In the City, On the Farm, and other books for children.

time being.”

A wonderful story about three children, one old car, and a world of imagi- nation.

Dragon and Captain

P. R. Allabach Illustrations by Lucas Turnbloom

“Hey, Pirate. What are you doing in my sandbox?” “I’m not a pirate. I’m the captain of a ship.” What is Captain doing in Drag- on’s sandbox? He is moping. Because he’s lost his ship. “Oh, no! I’ll help you find it! Come on!” “Where are we going?” “To my cave! I know I have a map somewhere.”

• Co-op available

• Author tour to include Fayetteville and Raleigh, North Carolina

Armed with a (toy watch) compass, a (pa- per-towel tube) telescope, and a (hand-drawn) map, Dragon and Captain set off on a great ad- venture. Dragon is a boy in pajamas and a drag- on robe. Captain is a boy with a three-sided hat. But as the boys’ imaginations take over, we see them as they see themselves and the backyard as the boys see it: a dark forest, a craggy cliff, and the immense sea. Illustrated like a comic book, this book is a fantasy-filled graphic novel for the picture book set. Young readers will be en- chanted with—and parents will appreciate—the creative backyard play, in which the boys use the

simplest found items and the backyard features to create an elaborate adventure. Can Dragon and Captain find the lost ship before lunch?

P. R. Allabach is a small-business owner who served in the U.S. Army in Afghanistan. Dragon and Captain is his first picture book. He lives in Wilmington, North Carolina. Lucas Turnbloom is an award-winning cartoonist, graphic novelist, and art director, whose work has been featured by Andrews McMeel Universal, Darkhorse Comics, USA Today, Time.com, and more. His daily comic strip, Imagine THIS, is syndicated online by Universal/Uclick. He lives in Santee, California.

Mica Mouse lost her house in a terrible storm, and now she trembles when the weather turns rough. She’s not so different from other children who’ve experienced some- thing very disturbing in their life or heard about tragic or frightening events in the news. Mica’s father tells her the story of a brave blue rhinoceros who learns how to get through rough times with friendship, helpers, love, and by “feeling your feelings.” LeVar Burton has poured a lifetime of experience storytelling to children into The Rhino Who Swallowed a Storm, and the result is more than a book—it’s a manual for finding the light in the midst of dark times.

LeVar Burton is an actor, director, and educator who has been an icon for more than 35 years. He has been the host, producer, and now co-owner of the influential tele- vision program Reading Rainbow for more than three decades, and starred in the TV miniseries Roots and on Star Trek: The Next Generation. He lives in Burbank, California. Susan Schaefer Bernardo is a published poet and the author of Sun Kisses, Moon Hugs. Courtenay Fletcher is a designer and the illustrator of Sun Kisses, Moon Hugs.

On a cold winter’s day Eduard Mörike took a walk with the young daughter of his friend. While stamping through the snow he told her the story of Sylvester and the New Year, a story which left a lasting impression on the young girl. When she was an adult, she wrote it down and so it has been passed on, creating a new tradition—the reading of this book on New Year’s Eve. This beautiful picture book is inspired by that fairytale told to a little girl more than 100 years ago. Originally told in German, and passed down through generations,

this classic story is presented in a truly charming lovely incantation. Eduard Mörike (1804–1875) was a renowned German poet. Emmeline Pidgen is an award-winning illustrator whose picture books include The Flyaway Blanket and One More Candle.

A tale for explaining difference to chil- dren, both engaging and challenging

“A thought-provoking catalyst for discus- sions about being different, coping with disabilities, bullying behaviors and caring for others.” —Magpies

“This is a gorgeous book for any child, but it’s particularly lovely for kids who see the world in their own special way.” —Mindfood

Ivan is a very special six-year-old. There is something about the way he looks and moves that sets him apart from the others in his class. Ivan knows that he is different, and what’s more, he knows why. Inside, he is a crocodile. Ivan is a friendly crocodile who would love to be one of the gang, but the others don’t un- derstand his crocodile ways. They taunt him and tease him, making him feel very much alone. By the end of Ivan’s story we take comfort in the fact that this young crocodile has found a way of feeling less alone as he takes his place in class with all the others. The book ends with a publisher’s note to parents with suggested discussion questions.

René Gouichoux has been a teacher and writer for children since 1988. He has written more than 60 books. Julia Neuhaus is a children’s book illustrator.

The Lavender Blue Dress

Aidan Moffat Illustrations by Emmeline Pidgen

Is there any way Mabel can have a beautiful dress to wear to the Christmas party?

Mabel knew many girls at school, some were weird, some were cool; some were friendly, some not quite; some were clever, some less bright; some loved books, some weren’t keen; some were nice and some were mean.

So begins Aidan Moffat’s charming and delightful tale. The first children’s book from the acclaimed indie sing- er-songwriter, it tells the story of Mabel, a little girl who wants nothing more than a beautiful dress to wear to her Christmas ball. Mabel’s family can’t afford to get her the lavender blue dress she wants, but can they find another way to send her to the ball in a beautiful gown? This sweet tale is perfect bedtime reading, teaching children about the value of friendship and family over material goods. It is beautifully illustrated by award-winning art- ist Emmeline Pidgen, bringing Moffat’s wonderful words to life.

Aidan Moffat began his career as one-half of the wildly successful indie band Arab Strap. He now records under his own name and the L.Pierre monicker.
