Kiwi Kids Catalog offers outstanding children's books from a number of English language publishers from around the world, many of whom have been honored with publisher of the year awards. The books range from new- baby keep-sake books; PRE-K EARLY LEARNING concept books of ABCs, numbers, colors, shapes, for early readers - traditional stories and fairytales that are brought to life with bright, colorful and beautiful illustrations as well as colorful Christian Bible-themed stories. Some of these books are enhanced by lively audio CDs that are great for sharing together or for children to enjoy by themselves. They are ideal for story-time, bed-time, travelling, or just about anytime. Many feature the Rebus 'see and say' picture-words-within-the-text method, a tried and trusted way to engage children in the first stages of reading. Children love to join in by saying the picture-words aloud, building confidence and developing early reading skills. Our exciting, essential early learning titles for toddlers and pre-school children make learning lots of fun, inspire a love of learning and are simply books that children love.
For ELEMENTARY school TEACHERS and home school PARENTS we offer our RESOURCE books and titles on language and the humanities, physical education, dance, art and music, poetry, math, science and technology, finances for children, and bereavement. For children there's the 'Phantom Horse' stories, a six title series, picture story books, illustrated traditional stories, how to learn good habits, puzzle picture coloring books for practising mental math and multiplication tables, the book of first 1000 words, first picture dictionary, first words in English and French, book of questions and answers, picture atlas, the truth about pirates and an informational series 'How It Works', and an expanding list of eighteen complete and unabridged classic fiction such as 'Little Women', 'The Call of the Wild', 'Kidnapped', 'Black Beauty', 'Anne of Green Gables', 'Treasure Island', 'The Wonderful Wizard of Oz' and more.
For MIDDLE SCHOOLS we offer teacher RESOURCE books for involving students in classroom activities in math, logical thinking puzzle books, mathematical patterns and design, team games, mirror symmetry, and math origami. As well, there are over 50 colorful classroom math posters. The publisher of these books is renowned worldwide for educational activity books for STUDENTS of middle school ages that ask them to cut two-dimensional 'nets' from the book pages, score, fold, glue together and decorate the three-dimensional paper models they have created - of MATHEMATICAL shapes: polyhedra and Platonic solids; of SCIENCE models explaining fundamental chemistry such as from the books 'The Curious Quantum' and the 'Chemical Helix' - a three dimensional model of the periodic table; of SOCIAL STUDIES with books on ancient Egypt, ancient Greece and ancient Rome from which children cut, score, fold and glue back into the book creating diorama-like double-page-spread pop-up pages showing scenes of the life and accomplishments of those places and time - the cradle of Western civilization. Many of these books contain a mini-book which is also cut out and stapled by the student creating yet another source of detailed and more dense information. Beside imparting educational information, completion of these model and pop-up books provide immense satisfaction and a feeling of accomplishment to the student. Other titles that are simply fun to work with in making mobiles, or beautiful gift boxes, or beautiful translucent window patterns also give this sense of accomplishment and self esteem. There are two other titles that I must mention - books that have become standard works in the field of Paper Engineering. One, titled 'Paper Engineering' describes ten different mechanisms that are essential to making pop-up books and enable students to create their own unique pop-up books. The other is 'Paper Automata' from which can be made four enchanting and fun working models to cut out and glue together, each with a different mechanism and each a student-built simple machine... a requirement of the middle school curriculum.
For HIGH SCHOOL students we are introducing a range of books for students approaching examinations. These books from the leading UK publisher of subject REVIEW titles have won admiration and high praise in the UK and the publisher was awarded in two years running The Educational Publisher of the Year Award from the IPA (Independent Publishers Association) for 2010 and 2011.
