Sylvan Dell Publishing Reveals Fall Titles of Math and Science Books for Children

Mount Pleasant, SC, May 22, 2008 --( Sylvan Dell Publishing, an educational children’s book publishing company, has announced their new titles for the upcoming fall season. The new picture books will uphold Sylvan Dell Publishing’s mission to “excite children’s imaginations with science, math and nature themed children’s books.”

“We couldn’t be more excited about the arrival of these new books,” said Sylvan Dell Editor Donna German. “They are bound to stimulate children’s imaginations while exercising their brains at the same time.”

Terry Pierce’s “Blackberry Banquet,” written in cumulative rhyming text, is set to release this month. “Blackberry Banquet” is not only a fun read, but it also promotes the study of science for children by providing information on plants and animals and their position in the food web. “Sort It Out,” written by Barbara Mariconda, is set for a May release, as well. “Sort It Out” centers on teaching children math through analogous thinking, as a young packrat must learn to organize his excessive amount of trinkets.

“My Half Day” and “Whistling Wings” will be available for purchase in June. “My Half Day,” authored by Doris Fisher, is an educational children’s book that focuses on helping children with math, namely fractions and units of measurement. Laura Goering’s “Whistling Wings”, also set to release in June, presents scientific facts about birds along with a background on migration.

John McGranaghan’s “Saturn for My Birthday”, set to release in July, offers children a lesson in astronomy while earning laughs for the humor embedded within its text. “Saturn for My Birthday” tells the story of a young boy longing for quite a peculiar gift for his birthday: the planet Saturn. This educational children’s book teaches kids about the solar system in a hysterical way. “River Beds,” written by Gail Langer Karwoski, will also be available for purchase in July. “River Beds” is a science-based children’s book that takes readers on a boat ride around the world to observe mammals’ sleeping habits. Additionally, this children’s book provides information on the classification of mammals and the continents where they reside.

While all of these new books are considered literature for children, they mostly center on teaching children math and science. “Educators, parents and children will all love the new fall books,” said German. “Reading has never been this much fun!”
