-- After summer vacations spent spotting nature, keep learning at home with Arbordale's new titles Animal Skins
and The Forest in the Trees.
World travelers can brush up on new languages with classic Arbordale picture books also making their debut this fall. Both The Forest in the Trees
and Animal Skins
release on September 10th, and titles in French, German, Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese and Arabic are currently available and forthcoming throughout the fall.
Scientists are continually learning about the world we live in, and these books, releasing this fall, incorporate years of research on animals and trees. Animal Skins
is the newest edition of Mary Holland's Animal Anatomy and Adaptations
series that gives readers insight into the outer coverings of all types of animals. Holland is a skilled nature photographer as well as a naturalist. She pairs simple facts, some are well-known others more obscure, with detailed photographs of birds, mammals, reptiles, and insects.
In Connie McLennan's The Forest in the Trees,
detailed illustrations reveal the unique inhabitants of the canopy of the coast redwoods. Recent research by biologists that climbed the giant trees revealed a green world and inspired McLennan to write this book for young children. The succinct stanzas and cumulative style reveal a new plant or animal that make up this ecosystem while reminding us of findings on previous pages. McLennan is a talented artist and paid close attention to researchers photographs to get every detail accurate in her illustrations.
In addition to these two titles, Arbordale debuts a collection of foreign language titles where little readers can begin to explore character languages such as Chinese, Japanese, and Arabic. While all titles are available in Spanish, this year we release other romance languages adding French and Portuguese. German is also available this fall with Indonesian and Thai following this winter. Popular titles such as Newton and Me, Living Things and Nonliving Things,
and Cao Chong Weighs an Elephant
have been translated into most languages. Digital editions allow readers to switch between all the available languages with just one click and compare the text with a bilingual option.
