A fun, playful, energetic story starring two stegosauruses and one stegothesaurus about family—and synonyms!—for the young word lover in your home, residence, or abode!
Stegothesaurus’s love of language has always put him at odds with his stegosaurus brothers. So when he makes a friend—an allothesaurus—who is just as verbose as he, he is happy, thrilled, and ecstatic! But Stegothesaurus soon learns that the allothesaurus has very different ideas about what constitutes a good meal, and he'll discover there’s one thing that he loves more than words: his family.
Featuring clever but simple text from Bridget Heos and bold, exuberant art by T. L. McBeth, Stegothesaurus introduces young readers to a memorable, original, unforgettable dinosaur hero.
Blood, Bullets, and Bones provides young readers with a fresh and fascinating look at the ever-evolving science of forensics. This nonfiction book is an excellent choice for tween readers in grades 7 to 8, especially during homeschooling. It’s a fun way to keep your child entertained and engaged while not in the classroom.
Since the introduction of DNA testing, forensic science has been in the forefront of the public’s imagination, thanks especially to popular television shows like CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. But forensic analysis has been practiced for thousands of years. Ancient Chinese detectives studied dead bodies for signs of foul play, and in Victorian England, officials used crime scene photography and criminal profiling to investigate the Jack the Ripper murders. In the intervening decades, forensic science has evolved to use the most cutting-edge, innovative techniques and technologies.
In this book, acclaimed author Bridget Heos uses real-life cases to tell the history of modern forensic science, from the first test for arsenic poisoning to fingerprinting, firearm and blood spatter analysis, DNA evidence, and all the important milestones in between. By turns captivating and shocking, Blood, Bullets, and Bones demonstrates the essential role forensic science has played in our criminal justice system.
In this swashbuckling tale, Mustache Baby and Beard Baby work hard to recover stolen treasure and convince baby buccaneers Captain Kid and Short John Silver to go legit. But when the scallywags refuse to play nice, Billy and Javier see red and go rogue, turning into bad guy pirates themselves. High spirits, plenty of pirate talk, and a mild message about not letting emotions get the best of you make for a rollicking read-aloud full of side-splitting, silly fun.
What does a doctor do? These kids have a few ideas. But to learn more, they talk to Dr. Zambil. He tells them how he helps sick or hurt kids feel better. He sees healthy kids to help keep them healthy. He even helps train new doctors. Let's hear it for doctors!
What do construction workers do? Some lucky kids are about to find out! They visit Mr. Moore, a construction worker who's helping to build a new school. He shows them machines that dig big holes. He explains how he follows the building plans. And he tells about different workers and how they stay safe. Hooray for construction workers!
Billy is an unusual baby—he was born with a mustache! And his pal Javier was born with a beard. Things get even sillier on Christmas Eve when Javier’s beard turns white and he becomes Santa Baby! Being Santa Baby is a lot of work—listening to the other babies’ Christmas wishes, taste testing treats, and getting the dachshunds, ahem, reindeer, ready for their big night. Luckily, Mustache Baby, AKA Elf Baby, shows up in the St. Nick of time to help make the toys. But when he finishes, he decides to keep them all for himself! Hijinks ensue, landing Mustache Baby firmly on the naughty list. That is until a visit from Santa Grownup reminds him that it is much more fun to give than to receive. The perfect holiday gift for any family with a mustachioed or bearded dad.
Fly is fed up with everyone studying butterflies. Flies are so much cooler! They flap their wings 200 times a second, compared to a butterfly's measly five to twelve times. Their babies-maggots-are much cuter than caterpillars (obviously). And when they eat solid food, they even throw up on it to turn it into a liquid. Who wouldn't want to study an insect like that?
In an unforgettably fun, fact-filled presentation, this lovable (and highly partisan) narrator promotes his species to a sometimes engrossed, sometimes grossed-out, class of kids.

From their families to their jobs, their farms to their construction work, ants are a lot like us—though with fascinating twists all their own.
Factual, funny and featuring a dynamic mix of photographs and cartoon illustrations, Just Like Us! Ants will charm even the most reluctant nonfiction readers.
