Airplanes (How It Works) 

Can you imagine having to drive long distances in a car, train, or bus? Airplane travel changed all that, making travel much quicker, easier, and less stressful. This book addresses the four factors that make it possible for an airplane to fly: weight, lift, thrust, and drag, and details what each of these things means to maintain the safety of the passengers who fly on the over 64 million flights a year in the United States. So, buckle up and enjoy your flight in this wonderful book about airplanes! This book will allow students to ask questions, make observations, and gather information about a situation people want to change to define a simple problem that can be solved through the development of a new or improved object or tool.

Armadillos 

A shell of bony plates covers an armadillo's body. This dense body armor protects the animal, but it also makes swimming difficult. To avoid sinking in water, an armadillo must inflate its stomach with air! In this book, children will learn about the diet, habitat, and unique look of the armadillo.

The Best Days Are Dog Days 

A little girl and her pet French bulldog are the perfect playmates in this all-day outdoors adventure!

When his family sets out to explore the neighborhood, one puppy is eager to join in the fun! He gets to do everything his sister does—with his own added flair, of course. Together they eat (pancakes for her, kibble for him), bathe (tub for her, sink for him), and play (chasing squirrels for both). Side by side, they enjoy the same things, each in their own way. And when the long day comes to an end, both settle down for a restful sleep—that is, until tomorrow comes. Because when every day’s a dog’s day, every day is the best day . . . especially when you can spend it with the person you love.
