Children's Literature - Heidi Hauser Green
It is all here: full-color photos, animal stories, dinosaur truths, historical information, and facts, facts, facts! More than 500 full-color photographs accompany text about topics as varied as Niagara Falls, pet tricks, tigers in the snow, the sinking of the Titanic, Harry Houdini, marketing tricks of food manufacturers, survival tips, letter-writing, research reports, and much more. Topics are split into ten broad categories: Your World 2015, Amazing Animals, Going Green, Awesome Adventure, Super Science, Fun and Games, Culture Connection, Wonders of Nature, History Happens, and Geography Rocks. This book invites curious readers to pick it up and browse, but they will be sure to want to return to their favorite information. This jam-packed book also includes an index. Readers of all ages will enjoy perusing this colorful 2015 almanac. Highly recommended as a worthwhile reference for school libraries, public libraries, and personal collections. Reviewer: Heidi Hauser Green; Ages 5 up.
From the Publisher
"This bright and breezy almanac captures your attention with colorful illustrations and photographs...Kids—and their parents—will not be able to resist this fun and quirky look at our world." —Adrienne Antink of American Reference Books Annual

"But what sets this reference book apart from others is the publisher’s wealth of unparalleled, high-resolution photos and bevy of fun facts from around the world." - Booklist

"These bright, entertaining books crammed with history, geography, science, culture, and games are a big hit with the grade-school crowd. Intriguing mini-essays, such as “Secrets of the Spirit Bear” vie with quotable animal facts (“A sloth would take a month to travel a single mile”) and groovy graphics." - Chicago Tribune
