Wild: A Photicular Book
Come face to face with our vanishing wildlife. Using unique Photicular technology, Wild brings to vivid life the animals who are under threat of extinction. It turns abstract numbers and names into touching and unforgettable images.
From the cover panda, lazily munching on leaves, to an albatross swooping its magnificent wings, to the hovering bumblebee, among the most critical of threatened animals in terms of its effect on the global food supply, Wild captures eight endangered animals in living motion. We see gorillas at play, a rhinoceros and its baby trotting across the savanna, a pangolin skittering along the landscape, an elephant bathing in a river.
An opening essay explores the environmental and economic threats to animal populations and how conservationists are working to slow—and when they can, reverse—the damage. Profiles of each animal accompany the images.
This interactive board book lets you mix and match the heads, bodies, and tails of ten real prehistoric animals--like the sabre-tooth tiger, woolly mammoth, and Macrauchenia--in order to create almost a thousand different imaginary ones. The flaps include interesting facts about each animal part, so you can learn how your Flip-o-storic creature would behave. There's also a handy chart that shows the actual size of the ten real animals that make up the "ingredients" of your Flip-o-storic, and gives the meaning and pronunciation of their names.
'Flip-o-storic'--which follows the incredible popularity of Sara Ball's recently released dinosaur book, 'Flip-o-saurus'--will captivate the imagination of anyone fascinated by these impressive and now extinct species. With its fun concept, beautiful artwork, and high production values, this book will make the perfect gift for any kid who loves the prehistoric.
Artist Sara Ball is a prolific illustrator of children’s books, many of them about modern or prehistoric animals.

My Big Barefoot Book of Wonderful Words
Seeing new things and learning new words opens so many doors for children! With this unique book, youngsters follow a bustling family through their busy day. The story unfolds through simple header sentences and bright, detailed illustrations.
Each scene is teeming with people, places and things. But what makes this book really different is that each of the narrative, "real world" scenes is followed and further developed by an abstract, interactive one. After the family gets dressed, for example, the readers are invited to choose their own outfits from a global closet of clothing. This alternating pattern enables the theme of each "real world" scene to be amplified, and gives the book a simple, repetitive rhythm.

Polar: A Photicular Book

A phenomenon first seen in the bestsellers Safari and Ocean, Photicular technology uses sliding lenses and video imagery to display realistic living motion in the pages of a book. It’s like a movie in your hand.
Penguins waddle in their irresistibly happy way. A walrus lumbers across the snowy landscape. There’s a polar bear with her lively cubs. A beluga whale, breaching. A team of sled dogs sprinting directly at the viewer. And the miracle of the Northern Lights, shimmering like a silk rainbow through the star-filled night.
National Geographic writer Carol Kaufmann brings the reader along on a voyage to the North and South Poles, and writes a lively and informative essay for each image, including vital statistics for each animal, such as their size, range, habitat, and more.
