Got your attention, huh? When a book arrives with a title like this one, it goes right to the top of the stack.




This is a pop-up, lift-the-flap book that discusses the circulatory and respiratory systems for young readers. I love these types of nonficiton pop-ups and wish they were around when I was trying to pass biology as a college freshman. Simple text, lots of interaction for readers: what more could you want?

Here is a new take on the story of HUMPTY DUMPTY: WHAT REALLY HAPPENED TO HUMPTY? (FROM THE FILES OF A HARD-BOILED DETECTIVE).




Instead of a cover, Titlewave had this inside shot. Here is a retelling, fractured version of what happened to Humpty Dumpty as told by his brother Joe, the hard-boiled detective. (Charlesbridge, 2009).

Look at this cover and ask how you could not want to open it and read it immediately:




DUCK AND COVER (HarperCollins, 2009) is the story of fearless Duck who insists that an alligator fleeing from the police should be given the benefit of the doubt and allowed to take cover in the basement. All ends well, of course, in this story of an unusual friendship.
