Happy #WorldBookDay! As the name suggests, it is a celebration of authors, illustrators, books, and (most importantly) reading. In fact, it’s the biggest event of its kind, designated by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and recognized in over 100 countries.
At World Book, we believe every day is about celebrating the wonderful power of books and encouraging a love of reading in children around the world. From comic book superheroes to Fun with Colors, from the Loch Ness monster to The Sun and Solar System, our highly appealing supplementary print series are created to both entertain and educate.
The absolute best way to celebrate this day would be to find the time to do some reading! We are excited to announce our new print releases and invite you to explore them for yourself.
Abnormal Field Guides to Cryptic Creatures
Picture this: Your face on the front page of the paper with the caption, "The only person to find Bigfoot!" Professor Abner Normal has all the tricks to lead readers on an educational (and unconventional) safari in search of the world’s most mysterious creatures.
Be a Leader
With its reader-friendly and interactive approach, Be a Leader presents an engaging and motivating introduction to the importance of leadership and provides examples, showing that every kid can find opportunities to be a leader. Each book highlights practical and easy ways to develop and utilize leadership skills in daily life.
Fun with Colors
Introduce colors, counting, and shape recognition to beginning readers with this fun and interactive series! Each book invites readers to point to the shapes and number of objects that correspond with each color while helping develop literacy skills. Vibrant, real-life photography and tightly controlled text work together to provide an engaging and supportive reading experience.
Social and emotional learning (SEL) helps children manage emotions, establish positive habits in communication, create and achieve goals, and make good decisions. Each book in Minding Emotions highlights a different emotion, how we experience and show it, how we can identify it in others, and how we can best respond to and understand these feelings.
Our Solar System
Our Solar System introduces the sun and everything that orbits it—the planets, dwarf planets, dozens of moons, and millions of asteroids, comets, and meteors—in an engaging new format that is sure to draw reader interest. Spectacular NASA photos and illustrations inspire readers to explore the wonders of our cosmic neighborhood while STEM-appropriate text describes discoveries in planetary science in easy-to-read language.
The Adventures of Young H.C. Andersen
Everyone knows the fairy tales of the great Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen. But what if Andersen’s magical tales were inspired by the fantastic adventures he had as a boy? This comic book-style series presents the daring adventures of a young H.C. Join him as he meets characters that would inspire his famous fairy tales, including “The Little Mermaid,” “Thumbelina,” “The Ugly Duckling,” and “The Snow Queen.” This series encourages readers—and H.C.—to explore, embrace, and celebrate their imagination.
The Sky's the Limit
The Sky’s the Limit helps readers create constructive attitudes, build confidence, and foster positive peer networks. Each title empowers the reader, detailing specific practices and mindfulness activities they can participate in daily to help achieve their goals while reinforcing the concepts of social and emotional learning (SEL).
