Wide Eyed Editions, aka, Beautiful Non-Fiction Children’s Books

In perusing the children’s non-fiction shelves earlier this week, I discovered a new press imprint called Wide Eyed Editions. They publish gorgeous, full-color, large-scale children’s non-fiction picture books out of The Quatro Group. Their books are too beautiful not to be known worldwide, or at least, featured in a blog post. Here are my two favorite at the moment:

Wonder GardenThe Wonder Garden
by Kristjana S Williams and Jenny Broom

Publisher Description: Open the gates of the Wonder Garden to explore five of Earth’s most extraordinary habitats, each filled with incredible creatures and epic scenery. Trek through the Amazon Rainforest, travel to the Chihuahuan Desert, dive in the Great Barrier Reef, delve deep into the Black Forest and stand on the roof of the world – the Himalayan Mountains – to see nature at its wildest.

Breathtaking, engraved illustrations bring to life Earth’s spectacular Wonder Garden.

Great Barrier ReefThis was my favorite illustration because I love water and all manner of aquatic life. Plus, the octopus is great inspiration for the water landscape 3/4 tattoo sleeve I’m working on.
50 StatesThe 50 States
by Sol Linero and Gabrielle Balkan

Publisher Description: Be inspired by the inventiveness, beauty and diversity of the United States in this curious collection of 50 fact-filled maps. Explore thousands of wondrous locations and be awed by the achievements of hundreds of people who helped make America what it is today.

Each map includes an introduction, trivia box and state symbols. A guide to the presidents and state flags feature in the back matter.

Celebrate, explore, enjoy!

By clicking onto the titles, you will be taken to the publisher’s website where you can see more of the interior pages of both of these books.

It came! It came! So excited to have received my gorgeous new @rebelgirlsbook book 2 in the mail yesterday! That's 2/2 GOODNIGHT STORIES FOR REBEL GIRLS books that I helped fund via @kickstarter, and I would help fund a dozen more at least. Also thrilled @quailridgebooks already has our shipment on order so I can handsell these through the holidays. #indiesfirst!

#readstagram #readwithme #readmore #reading #read #instaread #instabook #indiesfirst #shoplocal #bookstore #bookshop #bookshelves #book #books #bookrec #bookworm #bookish #booklove #booklover Today I sat down and read @theallycarter's newest book, NOT IF I SAVE YOU FIRST, coming out March 27, 2018, and I finished it in one sitting. That's how quickly I flipped those pages! I'm a huge fan of her HEIST SOCIETY series, and this one lives up to what I've come to expect from aa Ally Carter YA-thriller-romance. Read on for my review. Thanks to @quailridgebooks for my advanced copy! #booksellerlife . . .
Review: Ally Carter has done it again! I don't know how she manages to so perfectly balance a kick-ass teenage girl with just a pinch of over-the-top girliness, but she nails it every time. Basically this can be considered a contemporary retelling of The Paper Bag Princess, where the prince is the US President's son, the princess is the son's former best friend/daughter of the President's former body guard, and the dragon is a Russian operative. Oh and the setting is winter in Alaska. And because it's Ally Carter, while the girl clearly saves the day and rescues the boy, she also ends up with the boy because teenage love conquers all.

New review & a staff pick for @quailridgebooks: Guaranteed giggles! Clever illustrations, Captain PB (polar bear, not peanut butter), a literary fox, and three very silly lemmings. Perfect for all storytimes, with opportunities to do character voices. It also imparts the importance of learning how to read without being didactic. My favorite picture book of the year!
