Join our second Fall Nonfiction webcast (because one is never enough!) to learn about even more titles and series for your curious-minded young readers. From classic educational books with rich and engaging graphics and illustrations to SEL and in-depth historical topics, these forthcoming reads will leave your students and patrons begging for more. Here are just a few examples of what publishing insiders will present: 

Cutting-edge Technology
How do doctors use virtual reality? What effect will artificial intelligence have on the future? These questions and more are answered in this high-interest series about the world’s latest technologies. Vibrant photos and leveled text take reluctant readers on a journey through the history, science, uses, and future of each technology. Special features such as diagrams, timelines, graphs, and comparisons of pros and cons pack even more information into this fascinating series.

Series Highlight: Swimming with Sharks
From the mighty great white to the alien-like goblin shark, earth’s oceans are full of sharks. With speed, strength, and stealth, they make the perfect predators. They also make the ideal reading topics for young readers. Through diagrams, labeled images, and other graphics, this series emphasizes visual literacy while diving into the lives, habitats, and diets of the creatures children love to learn about.

BLOOD AND GERMS: The Civil War Battle Against Wounds and Disease
"For those interested in the history of medicine or fascinated by the Civil War, Jarrow’s latest offering astutely combines both topics. . . . Highlighting primary topics in a series of brief chapters, it follows soldiers through the typical responses to being wounded (or falling ill), from frontline interventions through field hospitals, then, via torturous ambulance journeys, to immense pavilion hospitals that both Union and Confederate sides were forced to establish. . . . A fascinating example of excellence in juvenile nonfiction."  —Kirkus Reviews, starred review 

In this book, readers will learn what empathy is, how and why to show it, how to use mindfulness to better practice empathy, and how to encourage it in others. Social and emotional learning (SEL) concepts support growth mindset throughout, while Grow with Goals and Writing Reflection activities further reinforce the content.
