Yesterday was Make Cut Out Snowflakes Day!

ISBN: 978-0-7660-2952-1
Grades 3–4
This activity is great for this time of year, especially with kids being out of school. Granted, here on the East Coast we haven't had snow since Halloween, but the thought of creating paper snowflakes is appealing!

Paper Crafts for Christmas contains instructions for making eight different paper crafts, including snowflakes. If making snowflakes doesn't appeal to you, you can also make a wreath, a Christmas tree, a pop-up chimney card, an ornament, and more!

Randel McGee wrote and created all of the crafts.

Library ISBN: 978-0-7660-3831-8
Paperback ISBN: 978-159845-299-0
Last night, New Orleans Saint superstar Drew Brees shattered the National Football League record for most passing yards in a single season. He surpassed the mark former Miami Dolphin quarterback Dan Marino set a generation ago. Brees' remarkable accomplishment generated an unusual amount of respectful recognition, including the very rare sight of assembled media applauding him before a post-game press conference.

Torsiello's engaging work delivers the basics about the Texas-born, Purdue University-educated Brees. Enslow also offers a teacher's guide for this 24-page title, including useful activities and a brief assessment tool. The book is included among the six titles in Enslow's Guided Reading "I" series "I Like Sports Stars."

Read About Drew Brees is available in paperback from Enslow Publishers for $6.95. A library-bound version is also available to schools and libraries for $15.95 (a 25% discount from Enslow's list price for its library-bound titles).

World AIDS Day is observed December 1st of every year and is dedicated to raising awareness globally about the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection.

This year’s theme, “Getting to Zero”, describes the desire for zero new HIV infections, zero discrimination, and zero AIDS-related deaths.

Enslow’s Fighting the AIDS and HIV Epidemic: A Global Battle, is a relevant title to mark this important day that is acknowledged around the world.

Animals and Kids

I like to say that animals and kids go together like peanut butter and jelly. We know it's hard to keep animal books on any shelf, whether it's the library, the classroom, or the bookstore. I'm a little partial to dogs and bears myself.

Here at Enslow we have an abundance of animal titles.  From baby animals to endangered animals, from dog heroes to animals that live in the snow and ice. We've recently added animal titles to our PreK collection because librarians and teachers were asking for them. You can even find books about some of the biggest and smallest animals in the world. And you can't forget about pet care. Whether kids own pets or not, we know they love to read about them.

Remember, today is the last day to enter our Pick-A-Page Giveaway. Go to one of our e-catalogs and pick a page of titles you would like to receive for free. Like us on Facebook and leave a comment on Facebook, letting us know which page you would like to receive. We will choose one winner by random at the end of the week.

Enslow Publishers: Putting the Historical back in Historical Fiction!

Here at Enslow Publishers, our goal and motto has always been: "Publishing the Best Nonfiction Books!"

With the addition of Captain Hannah Pritchard: The Hunt for Pirate Gold this Fall, our Historical Fiction Adventures series now contains a total of 10 books. Having reached such a nice round number, it seems appropriate to put them all in one place. If any of these (extremely shiny) covers catch your eye, just click one to see more information on the book. Enjoy!

New Enslow Books Discuss Asteroids, "Doomsday Rocks," and Close Call Scenarios

Library ISBN: 978-0-7660-3673-4
PPB ISBN: 978-1-59845-221-1
Later today, an asteroid will pass within 202,000 miles of our planet. While scientists are confident the object, known as 2005 YU55, will not strike Earth, it is in astronomical terms a close call.

Two Enslow books offer useful, engagingly written information about asteroids and other celestial rocks. One book -- Doomsday Rocks From Space -- is written with reluctant readers in mind. Author Margaret Poynter's 48-page, Guided Reading Level "T" title, part of the "Bizarre Science" series, investigates the science of doomsday rocks and the danger they pose to the planet. She also explores scientific theories that maintain that an asteroid collided with Earth during the Age of the Dinosaurs, effectively spelling the end of that era and many of its creatures.

Library ISBN: 978-0-7660-3188-3
PPB ISBN: 978-1-59845-191-7
For students at Guided Reading Level "N," Enslow's Far-Out Guide to Asteroids and Comets offers a skillfully designed approach to the science and the intrigue of these phenomena. Author Mary Kay Carson's well-written book stimulates a reader's interest as well as does justice to the topic's science. This 48-page work, part of Enslow's twelve-title "Far-Out Guide to the Solar System" series, also includes a profile of a scientist, a timeline of exploration, and a collection of "Far-Out Facts" useful for reports.

Books in the "Far-Out Guide to the Solar System" series and the "Bizarre Science" series are available in paperback and library-bound editions. Teacher's guides are available for all books in both series. Paperback prices are $7.95 per title; special six-pack rates are also available when you order directly from Enslow Publishers or from Enslow Classroom sales representatives. Library-bound editions are also available, starting from $17.95 per title (price reflects a 25% school/library discount from Enslow's list price).

Election Day and Enslow's Internet-Savvy "A Look at the 19th Amendment"

ISBN: 978-1-59845-067
Today's Election Day voting activity across the country reminds us that young readers need reliable, Internet-savvy books on the right to vote, a core topic in American history and civics lessons. Enslow's seven-book "The Constitution of the United States" series satisfies that need in many ways. A Look at the 19th Amendment, a 128-page book in the series, explores the background and issues impacting how women won the constitutionally guaranteed right to vote. Author Helen Koutras Bozonelis' book provides useful content written at appropriate age and grade levels, along with a curated list of thirty informative websites available via Enslow's password protected site.

This powerful research combination of print and electronic resources gives students contemporary ways to learn and to express themselves. Each title in the "Constitution of the United States" is available now for $24.95, which represents the 25% school/library discount price. Access to the exclusive site is included in the book's price.

If you're putting together a purchase order for Enslow's "free Kindle" offer, we suggest you add these Internet-savvy titles to it. It's a great way to expand your library's print and electronic resources for one price!
