Superhero ABC

Book Cover from BN.com

Silly and zany, and armed with the most unusual skills, these heroes are out to save the world-one letter at a time. Together, these one-of-a-kind defenders represent the ABC's in a way never seen before.

Clementine

Book Cover from BN.com

Sara Pennypacker

The only thing worse than a fruit name is a vegetable name. A sweet family life serves as the foundation for the story, which charts a tough week for Clementine, involving badly cut (and marker-dyed) hair, trouble with the principal, and a spat with a best friend.

Grade Level: 1-3
Publisher: Hyperion Books for Children

An Island Grows

Book Cover from BN.com

Lola M. Schaefer

This is the story of the birth of an island, from the first red-hot glow of magma at the bottom of the ocean, to the flowing lava that hardens and builds up higher and higher until, finally, it breaks through the water's surface. And then, life comes to the island. First come the small plants and animals, and later, people. This is a tale as old—and as new—as the ground we walk on.

Grade Level: K-3
Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers

The Secret Science Project That Almost Ate the School

Book Cover from BN.com

Judy Sierra

Students, heed this little rhyme:
When it's science project time,
Do not make goop,
or glop,
or grime,
And never mess with
mutant slime.

Grade Level: 1-3
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children's

Mammoths on the Move

Join a pack of woolly mammoths as they trek south for the winter, braving fierce storms, deadly predators, and raging rivers while making their slow journey across the gorgeous unspoiled lands of this continent until finally they reach their goal.
