Picture Books from Sylvan Dell Publishing

Syvlan Dell Publishing recently sent out an announcment for some of their new picture books.  They wrote that these books are “not text books in the traditional sense, but rather fun picture books that a child will want to read over and over again”.

I’ve listed their description of some of their books below and also a link to their site. Be sure to visit their activities and learning links for every book on their webpage. The link to their site is: www.SylvanDellPublishing.com.

“The Rainforest Grew All Around”

Imaginations will soar from the forest floor, up through the canopy and back down again, following the circle of life. The jungle comes alive as children learn about the wide variety of creatures lurking in the lush Amazon rainforest in this clever adaptation of the song “The Green Grass Grew All Around.” Search each page to find unique rainforest bugs and butterflies hiding in the illustrations. Delve even deeper into the jungle using sidebars and the “For Creative Minds” educational section, both filled with fun facts about the plants and animals, how they live in the rainforest and the products we use that come from the rainforest. Written for ages 3-7

How the Moon Regained Her Shape“How the Moon Regained Her Shape”

Influenced by Native American folktales, this fascinating story deals with bullying, self-confidence, and understanding the phases of the moon. After the sun insults and bullies her, the moon gets very upset and disappears – much to the chagrin of rabbits who miss their moonlight romps. With the help of her friends, the moon gains more self-confidence each day until she is back to her full size. The “Creative Minds” section explains the phases of the moon and helps to answer those pesky questions like “why is the moon up during the day?”, or “why does the shape of the moon change? Moon crafts and games supplement the understanding. Written for ages 6-10

One Odd Day

“One Odd Day” is a humorous, rhythmic, read-aloud story about a boy who awakens to find that everything around him is “odd.” His shirt has three sleeves and his dog has five legs. . . Things are no better at school either. Will his odd day end when he goes to bed that night? Children will delight in finding all the “odd” items and numbers hidden in the art! This great introduction to the concept of odd and even numbers is supplemented by odd fun facts, number games, and the art! Written for ages 4-8
