ABC Animals! ( Scanimation Picture Books )

$16.95

***A 2016 National Parenting Product Awards (NAPPA) winner

The timeless appeal of alphabet books meets the richest Scanimation book ever. ABC Animals is a romping, stomping journey from A to Z, and all the animals come alive--as many as four to a page--in the excitement of Scanimation. It's the alphabet as it's never been seen before: Watch the Alligator snap, the Bats swooping, the Camel trot. There's L for the Lion proudly prowling along, and M for the Mouse scurrying inside his wheel. And it all culminates in the largest Scanimation image yet: Z, for Zoo, where all the animals gather to play.

Hog Wild!: A Frenzy of Dance Music

$17.95
"Every man, woman, chicken, and child! Come on over now 'cause we're going HOG WILD!"

Great singers, great actors, terrific music, and SUCH a cool illustrated songbook--wild times all around! The irrepressible Sandra Boynton brings you eleven all-out musical tracks, in a dizzying array of dance styles. And the songs are performed by a veritable dream team: The smoldering Patrick Wilson channels Elvis in the rockabilly "Hog Wild" title track. The ever-wonderful Kristen Bell convinces everyone to just "Dance It Out." Samuel L. Jackson stomps his captivating way through "Tyrannosaurus Funk." Stanley Tucci is the impossibly frenetic caller of the "Rat Race." Five for Fighting goes full-on big band era with a stunning slow-build/big-finish "Swing Thing." And when's the last time you heard Laura Linney and "Weird Al" Yankovic perform a song together? Here they give you the electronic sci-fi "Robot Dance," which Mr. Yankovic suddenly turns into (naturally enough) a Broadway tap dance number. All this and so much more!

Hog Wild! is the sixth Boynton songbook-and-CD set--the recording created with her long-time music producing partner, Michael Ford. The full-color hardcover book includes glorious Boynton illustrations, all the lyrics, and a section of music notation for all eleven songs.

This celebrated book/CD music series has over 2.5 million copies in print, and three of them have been New York Times bestsellers. They also have garnered a Grammy nomination, and one Platinum and two Gold record albums, led by the million-copy Philadelphia Chickens.

So don't just sit there! Take a child by the hand, put on your sneakers or tap shoes (oh heck, bare feet will do), cue up the CD, and get out there and dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, dance!!!

Most Dangerous Book: An Illustrated Introduction to Archery

$22.95
It's the ultimate introduction to the world of archery, in a book that turns into an actual bow that shoots paper arrows.

All you have to do is unlock and open the upper and lower bow limbs, punch out and fold the arrows, and shoot!

But the book is also a rich and lively illustrated history of archery, covering the physics of a bow and arrow; the types of bows used since 4500 BC; arrows from around the world, like the deadly stone arrowheads used by Native Americans, or the Japanese whistling Kabura-ya that helped Samurai signal each other. Here are the great archery battles--Thermopylae in 480 BC, where the Spartan "300" faced a Persian who shot so many arrows they darkened the sky; or the Battle of Leipzig in 1813, the last battle to feature archers--horsemen from the Eurasian steppes--who helped the Russians defeat Napoleon.

Paint by Sticker: Birds

$14.95
Paint by Sticker is the most exciting new idea in activity books, both for grown-ups and kids. A compelling activity for crafters and artists, doodlers and colorers of all ages, each Paint by Sticker book includes everything you need to create twelve vibrant, full-color "paintings." The original images are rendered in low-poly, a computer graphics style using geometric polygon shapes to create a 3D effect. As in paint-by-number, each template is divided into dozens of spaces, each with a number that corresponds to a particular sticker. Find the sticker, peel it, and place it in the right space. Add the next, and the next, and the next--it's an activity that's utterly absorbing, both in the pleasure of peeling and sticking and the growing satisfaction of watching a "painting" come to life, emerging from a flat black-and-white illustration to a dazzling image with color, body, and spirit.

Paint by Sticker: Birds celebrates the rainbow of colors and shapes of the avian world: a red-headed woodpecker, a blue jay, an orange and black Baltimore oriole, an electric bright hummingbird.

Squiggle!: Doodle Over 200 One-Line Animals!

$12.95
It's a brand-new way to doodle, and an innovative way to learn to draw.

A squiggle is a one-line drawing. When you squiggle, you never lift your pen or pencil from the paper. And using this one line, Squiggle! shows kids how to draw over 200 animals. Animals with personality, like a fierce lion, a friendly elephant, a curious dolphin, and a whole field full of hopping, crouching, and resting bunnies. A squiggle can be as simple as a duck or as complex as a peacock.

Squiggle! also includes a connected doodle pad, so kids can practice drawing any animal side-by-side with the example. Each page is perforated so young artists can easily tear off their masterpieces to share with family and friends. And when the doodle pad is done, fold the extended cover into flaps so the book itself can last forever and keep inspiring creative one-line doodles.
