8 Years

We love eight-year-olds! They’re just the right age for all kinds of fun. They still love the pretend play they’ve been enjoying for years, yet they’re also ready to move ahead into more advanced toys and learning. All of these toys and activities will appeal to their natural sense of fun and wonder.

My First Origami Kit is the perfect introduction to the joys of origami for kids of all ages. Featuring sheets of stickers along with folding paper, this kit is sure to keep them engaged and happy for hours!

Included are whimsical origami penguins, foxes, pigs, airplanes and more—even a cute teddy bear that "talks" when you open and close its arms. All of the papers are colorfully decorated on both sides with a different design for each of the 22 models! There are feathers for the duck, metal plates for the airplane, scales for the cobra, and so on. In most cases, it doesn't even matter which side of the paper kids use—they'll still end up with a great-looking model!

Kids will love to add sticker details to their models—eyes, noses, paws, and many other cute features. They can make the finished models look as silly or as serious as they want. Your child will proudly display the finished handiwork—their very first origami!

Projects include:

  • Diablo the Cobra
  • Clarence the Mouse
  • Magic Box
  • Barkley the Sea Lion
  • Edward Elephant
  • Cootie Catcher
  • Soaring Sam

TIME For Kids The NEW BIG Book of Why Crazy, Cool & Outrageous answers the questions that kids commonly ask and adults can rarely answer. Why are our eyes different colors? Why do we put candles on a birthday cake? Why do we high five our friends? Why do elephants have big ears?

The book is divided by subject area - humans, animals, environment/nature, technology and space - and written in an upbeat manner, each answer is accompanied by either a photo or an illustration to show the reasons why.

TIME For Kids The NEW BIG Book of Why Crazy, Cool & Outrageous is a must-have book to satisfy the most curious of kids. Kids will be desperate to share what they've learned with their parents, teachers, and friends...and anyone else who will listen!

Lesley Livingston and Jonathan Llyr

Meet Cheryl and Tweed, two 12-year-old girls who are identical twins (just not with each other!), cousins, and best pals. After a mysterious “incident” involving a plane trip when they were very young left both girls orphaned and twin-less, they are raised by their grandfather, the owner/operator of the tumbledown Starlight Paradise Drive-In movie theatre in the middle-of-nowhere town of Wiggins Cross. The girls have bonded closer than sisters through a shared love of B movies and buttered popcorn, and they firmly believe that there must be something more out there in the world than meets the eye. Something … weird.

They’re about to find out just how right they are.

When Dudley’s World O’Wonders, a threadbare travelling carnival, rolls into town, the citizens of Wiggins welcome the distraction. But even “Colonel” Winchester P.Q. Dudley, the carnival’s shady owner, doesn’t realize that among the fake and fabricated “wonders” of his travelling sham-show rests the authentic mummified remains of a young Egyptian princess … bearing a shockingly real curse!

It’s up to Cheryl and Tweed, with their encyclopaedic knowledge of monster movie lore, and their flyboy friend Yeager “Pilot” Armbruster to save the town—and themselves!

By Raleigh Rimes

What if dinosaurs had not died out? What if whole colonies of the prehistoric beasts had survived on a remote island off the coast of South America? The latest adventure in the best-selling ’Ology series offers young dinosaur lovers a tantalizing taste of what that would be like. The year is 1907, and young adventurer Raleigh Rimes is on an expedition to South America with real-life explorer Percy Fawcett. There he discovers the unimaginable: living dinosaurs roaming the rain forest! Presented as a journal detailing their extraordinary (and hairraising) encounters with the amazing beasts -- fearsome Tyrannosaurus rex, pack-hunting allosauruses, predatory velociraptors, armored triceratops, and other species -- Dinosaurology is filled with flaps and booklets offering dinosaur lore, along with such novelties as a sample of dinosaur skin, a pouch of ground stegosaurus horn, and more.

Could dinosaurs still roam the earth? In the newest discovery in the 'Ology series, readers come face-to-face with living, breathing dinosaurs.

By Kate DiCamillo, Illustrated by K.G. Campbell

It begins, as the best superhero stories do, with a tragic accident that has unexpected consequences. The squirrel never saw the vacuum cleaner coming, but self-described cynic Flora Belle Buckman, who has read every issue of the comic book Terrible Things Can Happen to You!, is the just the right person to step in and save him. What neither can predict is that Ulysses (the squirrel) has been born anew, with powers of strength, flight, and misspelled poetry -- and that Flora will be changed too, as she discovers the possibility of hope and the promise of a capacious heart. From #1 New York Times best-selling author Kate DiCamillo comes a laugh-out-loud story filled with eccentric, endearing characters and featuring an exciting new format -- a novel interspersed with comic-style graphic sequences and full-page illustrations, all rendered in black-and-white by up-and-coming artist K. G. Campbell.

Holy unanticipated occurrences! A cynic meets an unlikely superhero in a genre-breaking new novel by master storyteller Kate DiCamillo.

Hardcover containing 240 pages.

This incredible, original story captures all of the humour, awkwardness, fun, and frustrations of middle school — all told through one boy's comics, journal entries, letters, doodles, and newspaper clippings. The setting? A galaxy far, far away . . .

Roan's one dream is to leave home and attend Pilot Academy like his older brother, father, and grandfather. But just as Roan is mysteriously denied entrance to Pilot School, he is invited to attend Jedi Academy — a school that he didn't apply to and only recruits children when they are just a few years old. That is, until now.

This inventive novel follows Roan's first year at Jedi Academy where, under the tutelage of Master Yoda, he learns that he possesses more strength and potential than he could have ever dreamed. Oh, and he learns other important things too — like how to make a baking soda volcano, fence with a lightsaber, slow dance with a girl, and lift boulders with the Force.

Hardcover illustrated novel containing 160 pages.

Although Inventions is designed for 8 year olds and up, this title has had an extraordinary history and following. It has been used at MIT to mentor high school students in physics. It has been used at U.C. Berkeley to mentor women in science. It has been used similarly at other institutions including Fermi Lab and the University of Texas at Austin.
