Summer 2010 Picturebook Highlights – Workman

Here are two titles from Workman Publishing, fifth in the “Summer 2010 Picturebook Highlights” series!

The Book of Potentially Catastrophic Science: 50 Experiments for Daring Young Scientists
by Sean Connolly
9780761156871, $12.95, Pub Date: March 2010
A sequel to The Book of Totally Irresponsible Science: 64 Daring Experiments for Young Scientists (9780761150206, $12.95), this book takes science one step further. The science experiments are all selected to demonstrate a specific scientific principle that is explained in a fun “history of science” blurb on each page. Don’t miss out on either one of these books – though I hate to gender things, I’ve had great feedback from 8-12-year-old boys in particular.

Star Wars: A Scanimation Book: 12 Iconic Scenes from a Galaxy Far, Far Away…
by Rufus Butler Seder
9780761158462, $14.95, Pub. Date: April 2010
A perfect combination – scanimation technology and the hi-tech sci-fi world of Star Wars. Similar to earlier books Gallop!, Swing!, and Waddle, this book is geared toward children a few years older than board book age, though still in a sturdy landscape format to mimic film stills. Only there’s nothing still about these pages, for as you move the page, each scene moves with you for a mini live-action shot of 12 Star Wars scenes.

Book review time! 
The Story of Diva and Flea
By Mo Willems + Tony DiTerlizzi
Loved this as a read-aloud for little ones that can sit still for longer picture books, or, as it's a beginning chapter book, great for ages 6-8 who are learning how to read more confidently by themselves.

#poemaday #nationalpoetrymonth #haiku #kerouac #wildlyread #poem #poetry First day of full-time hours in my new job as a bookseller for an independent bookstore, and it's staff pick time! I fell in love with this book years ago, before the movie was even a dream. Though I'm not a fan of the movie tie-in cover, I'll gladly place this book in readers' hands. . . .
