Welcome back to our new releases blog – this is where you can find all our upcoming titles and most recent releases. It’s November – and that means long nights, dark, cosy evenings and toffee apples… all that’s missing is a good book! And have we got four for you right here.
Eager-eyed fans of our popular Infographics series will be pleased to know that little ones can get in on the non-fiction fun with the release of our new Infographics titles at key stage one. This bold, bright series packs a visual punch, using infographic-style imagery to inform and enhance understanding of the text.
Today’s children are online from an early age, and understand the visual language of the internet even before they can read the words – who hasn’t marvelled at a two year-old expertly navigating an iPad? By cleverly translating the internet-savvy language of the pictogram and infographic onto the printed page, this series blurs the lines between the two, using it’s visual appeal to entice the reader. At the same time, fascinating facts and interesting information are delivered at a curriculum-appropriate level in easy-to-read sections.
Let’s look closer at the four titles out this month…
