The Book of Heroines 
(ages 8-12, $14.99) - In The Book of Heroines it's all about Girl Power! Looking for a leading lady? How about more than 100 of them? True stories of superstars, war heroes, world leaders, ladies in lab coats, and everyday people who all have two things in common - they were girls and they changed the world. From Michelle Obama, Jane Goodall, and Wonder Woman to Susan B. Anthony, Gloria Steinem, and Katie Ledecky, The Book of Heroines not only highlights how girls are just as tough as boys, but also challenges the reader to be a heroine herself and provides tips on how to unleash her inner heroine.

The Book of Heroes
(ages 8-12, $14.99) - The Book of Heroes highlights 100 guys who had the boldness, bravery, and brains to meet the challenges of their day. Featuring a very diverse array of amazing minds, heroes from history, sports stars and even action heroes - like Abraham Lincoln, Mark Zuckerberg, Stephen Hawking, and Steve Irwin - boys will be sure to find more than just a few role models in the pages of this book and also perhaps inspire them that they, too, are capable of extraordinary things.

How Things Work
(ages 7-10, $19.99) - Discover the secrets and science behind bounce houses, hovercraft, robotics, and everything in between in this book that provides both the quick answers AND complete explanations for all things high tech, low tech, and no tech (how DOES glue work?). Detailed diagrams, revealing photos, hands-on activities, and fascinating facts all help to demystify many common items - like how a microwave works, how an eraser makes pencil marks disappear, and how an iPad or tablet can do so much - and also delves into the more futuristic, but very real inventions like bionics, invisible cloaks, and tractor beams. "Tales from the Lab" and profiles of talented engineers, inventors, and scientists provide plenty of inspiration. How Things Work is perfect for the kid who thinks "just because" isn't a REAL answer.
