I am always on the lookout for amazing new resource books to add to our homeschool library. I was thrilled when Quarto Kids sent me 2 samples of new books they have coming out this fall. They are incredible!!! Quarto consistently knocks it out of the park when it comes to incredible nonfiction books, and these 2 titles are no exception!
Encyclopedia of Animals
First up is Encyclopedia of Animals. This is another gem from Wide-Eyed Editions, which is an imprint of Quarto that creates mind-blowing nonfiction! They know the key to creating nonfiction books that kids LOVE! This is a huge and beautiful book that is packed to the brim with crazy gorgeous illustrations and interesting animal info! This will be a wonderful addition to any zoology study in your homeschool. I also know my kids will love to use this book as inspiration for our nature journals!
Such a wide collection of animals are included…from the biggest to the smallest! In addition to the gorgeous illustrations, each entry includes information about the animal such as diet, size, where it is located, and it’s scientific name. This is a must-have for your home library!
Encyclopedia of Animals hits shelves October 1st, 2019! You can pre-order now!
Atlas of Ocean Adventures: A Collection of Natural Wonders, Marine Marvels, and Undersea Antics from Across the Globe
This book is in-cre-di-ble! Atlas of Ocean Adventures is the 5th book in the Atlas of Adventures series and it might be my favorite yet. It is absolutely stunning and the perfect book for an ocean-loving family. If you are familiar with the other books in this series, like Atlas of Adventures: Wonders of the World or Atlas of Dinosaur Adventures, then you know just how amazing these books are. There is so much information presented in such a fun way. The pages are a feast for your eyes. I notice something new every time I flip through these books! The scenes are deliciously illustrated and also present so much information.
Atlas of Ocean Adventures will take you on an adventure below the surface of the ocean. You will learn all about the diversity of life that lives in the ocean. You will visit the Man-O-War in the Atlantic Ocean, the Leatherback Turtles in the Pacific Ocean, Seahorses in the Indian Ocean, Elephant Seals in the Southern Ocean, and Walruses in the Arctic Ocean. There are more than 30 scenes throughout this book that will introduce you to some truly amazing creatures!
I can’t wait to incorporate this book in our next Oceanography unit. This is the perfect resource for your homeschool library if you have little ocean lovers or plan to study the ocean! Another home-run from Wide-Eyed Editions and Quarto! Atlas of Ocean Adventures arrives on November 5th, 2019!
I have a flip through of the samples saved in my story highlights on Instagram! You can check it out over at Homeschool by the Beach on Instagram! Thank you so much Quarto for sharing a sneak peek at these books with us! We can’t wait until their book birthdays!
