Focus on Nonfiction: New Arrivals

If nonfiction is well done, it has the capacity to get kids interested in and excited about the world around them. The act of independent (and sometimes hands-on) learning is at the core of some of our new books: fun, interesting, and relevant, these new series will spark curiosity, creativity, and the best kind of learning: the kind that happens without deliberate effort, but that comes from true enjoyment.
