Reluctant readers? Goofy pranksters? Curious kiddos? We have just what you need! Join this webcast for an insider's glance at the latest and greatest reads for your nonfiction fans, including hi/lo titles that support striving learners and popular series that span nearly every interest imaginable.

  • Animals around the world describe their bodies' unique features and how they use their bodies to survive. From feet to eyes, young readers are introduced to animal adaptions in these "I've Got" picture books.
  • Bolt Jr. takes the power of the Bolt imprint, with its bold colors, leveled text, and dynamic infographics, and brings it to a younger (K-2) audience. The initial offering will include sets on Awesome Animal Lives, the World of Robots, and A Little Bit Spooky. 
  • Starting Out narrates tales of growing up in the wild. This series employs straightforward language and a unique first-person perspective to introduce foundational biological concepts as it follows the adorable animal through the start of its young life.
  • High-interest topics, real stories, accessible text, engaging design, and astonishing photos are the building blocks of the XBooks, a new series designed to engage and motivate reluctant and enthusiastic readers alike. 

Grow your readers, from Pre-K to early teens, with these exciting collections!
