Come paw to paw with a polar bear and eye to eye with a giant squid in this interactive book that invites readers to compare parts of their bodies with life-size artworks of different animals.

Children can compare their ears with a kangaroo, their teeth with a tiger, their hand with a polar bear, and their tongue with a giraffe! A gallery at the back gives fascinating facts and details about all the animals.

This is a large (12×12) non-fiction picture book for kids 3+. It is full of information and illustrations that will delight any animal lover. The word LIFESIZE indicates that the mentioned animal, or part of an animal, is illustrated true to life size.  

Fun and educational ت

If you crochet then you’re gonna appreciate The Crochet Answer Book. This little reference book from Storey Publishing provides lots of helpful information about crocheting. It has solutions to just about every crochet situation whether simple or perplexing. You can easily find the answer to your question in this book and get that project going.

The Crochet Answer Book

Edie Eckman

This perfect little handbook is here to answer all your hooking dilemmas. From selecting the right hook and yarn for the project, to getting started in the round or flat, working around corners and other tricky spots, and venturing into more complex patterns, author Edie Eckman is your constant companion. She’s anticipated every situation you may encounter and offers clear, complete answers, along with easy-to-follow diagrams.

The Crochet Answer Book is written in a Q (question) and A (answer) format with drawings that give a clear visual demonstration. I recommend it as the crocheting “go to” book.

The spike stitch is new to me but one that I would be willing to try from the books’simple instructions.

Have you been to the beach this Summer or planning an ocean trip soon? Storey Publishing has a fun – and educational  – workbook called Sea Life Games & Puzzles. It will keep kids of all ages entertained while taking a real or imaginary trip to the beach!

Sea Life Games & Puzzles

101 Brainteasers, Word Games, Jokes & Riddles, Picture Puzzles, Matches, and Logic Tests for Ocean-loving Kids

Cindy A. Littlefield

Kids will have hours of fun learning more about their favorite sea creatures and ocean phenomenas as they work their way through puzzles, games, brainteasers, and jokes. Lead a clownfish through a coral maze, determine which oyster is hiding the pearl and figure out which ocean creatures are called lemons (sharks), cows (manatees), and barbers (fish). All in all, it’s a guaranteed whale of a good time — and that’s no fish story!

Sea Life Games & Puzzles is a workbook with a variety of activities, both fun and informative, for everyone. “Grab your pencils and dive in”

A dolphin is a whale? Yeah, I knew that!
