Engineers Solve Problems!

Engineers Solve Problems!: A Song for Budding Scientists
by Katie Hoena (Author), Blake Hoena (Author), Kelly Canby (Illustrator), and Mark Oblinger (Arranger)

Booktalk: Budding engineers will learn the steps engineers use to solve problems. As they sing along, students will solve a problem just like an engineer would.

The book comes with a CD, sheet music, and online music access.

Snippet:
Ask, imagine, and plan,
create and improve.
That’s how engineers like to groove.

If You Were the Moon

If You Were the Moon
by Laura Purdie Salas (Author) and Jaime Kim (Illustrator)

Booktalk: What would you do if you were the moon? Do you think you would rest quietly in the night sky? Oh, no. The moon does so much more than you might imagine! It spins like a twilight ballerina, plays tug-of-war with the ocean, and lights a pathway for baby sea turtles. Discover the many other roles the moon plays . . .

Snippet:

Hover near your mother.

Scientists believe the moon formed 4.5 billion years ago when a meteorite the size of Mars collided with the newly formed Earth. Rock from Earth and the meteorite splashed into space, and the moon was born.

See the book trailer.

There’s a Bug on My Book!

There’s a Bug on My Book!
by John Himmelman (Author / Illustrator)

Booktalk: Beetles fly, frogs hop, and slugs slide over the pages of this book, made to be read by a child while lying on the grass. Children interact with the book, with a tip, tap, and turn of the book, moving the critters along. The critters even interact with each other in surprising ways.

Snippet:
