New Release Beaver Kits By Ruth Owen

Available on the iBookstore/iPad ($.499)

With their flat, paddle-like tails and their super-long front teeth, beavers are among North America’s most interesting animals. They are incredible builders, using branches and logs to dam up rivers and streams to create ponds. Here, in the middle of the beaver-made ponds, they often build a lodge from mud, sticks, and other found items. It is inside the lodge that one to four cute little beaver kits are born in the spring. Through gorgeous photos and clear, simple text, readers will discover how the babies learn to work with their parents to find food, repair the dam and lodge, and survive cold winters in this coming-of-age introduction to beaver kits.

Beaver Kits is part of Bearport’s Wild Baby Animals series.

New Release Arctic Fox Pops By Ruth Owen

Available on the iBookstore/iPad ($.499)

Although adult Arctic foxes have the warmest fur of any mammal and can actually sleep out in the open, they need dens to raise their pups in. So every spring, the mother and father fox move into an earthen den that they have often used year after year. There, 7 to 15 pups are born, each blind and almost helpless. For two months, both parents work continuously to keep their babies fed—bringing them lemmings every single day. Readers will see how the cute little pups soon learn to hunt and feed themselves—and eventually, to move out and live on their own. Combining gorgeous photos and clear, simple text, this coming-of-age introduction to Arctic fox pups is sure to delight emergent readers.

New Release - Malaria: Super Killer! By Stephen Person

Available on the iBookstore/iPad ($.499)

One of the oldest diseases in history, malaria was once common all over the world. Some scientists believe that malaria may have killed more people than any other disease in human history. Fortunately, doctors now understand the causes of the disease and have developed effective treatments. Yet in some parts of the world, malaria continues to kill hundreds of thousands of people each year. In fact, it’s estimated that every 30 seconds a child in Africa dies from this terrible disease. Why is this super killer still taking so many lives? And will humans ever conquer malaria once and for all?

In Malaria: Super Killer!, children will learn all about this disease, including its history, how it spreads, and how doctors and organizations continue to work to eradicate the illness from impoverished areas. Readers will also meet individuals like Dawn Dubsky, a malaria survivor from Chicago who founded America Against Malaria, a group working to defeat the disease in the African nation of Ghana.

Malaria: Super Killer! is part of Bearport’s Nightmare Plagues series.

New Release - Flying Giants By Monica Hughes

Available on the iBookstore/iPad US and Canada only ($.499)

What ruled the skies during the age of dinosaurs? The answer: Creatures as fantastic and huge as some of the dinosaurs themselves! Quetzalcoatlus, for example, had a wingspan of 35 feet [10.5 m]—as wide as the wingspan of a small airplane. Exciting illustrations and clear writing will help young readers
learn how modern reptiles and birds are related to the dinosaurs—both have scales, lay shelled eggs, and have similar skeletal features. Developed by literacy experts, Flying Giants features controlled text with appropriate vocabulary, grammar, and sentence structure for emergent readers.

Flying Giants is part of Bearport’s I Love Reading: Dino World series.

New Release.. Fighting Dinosaurs by Monica Hughes

Available on the iBookstore/iPad US and Canada only ($.499)

Right out of Jurassic Park, Fighting Dinosaurs shows young readers how dinosaurs fared in combat with each other. The plant eaters, of course, had all kinds of armor—more than any medieval knight. There were spikes and horns and thick-plated skin. These ancient creatures needed such defenses, because the meat eaters were fast and strong and often had terrifying teeth! Young readers will be fascinated by scenes of predators hunting in packs and the amazing ways that nature helped the plant eaters protect themselves. Developed by literacy experts, Fighting Dinosaurs features controlled text with appropriate vocabulary, grammar, and sentence structure for emergent readers.

Tips from Digital Book World

New York City was last week host to the Digital Book World 2013 conference, bringing together leading publishers, technologists and agents from across the globe to discuss topics ranging from digital marketing campaigns to innovation, with a particularly popular session on the importance of XML from Robert Oeste.

With a recent survey revealing that 90% of publishers are optimistic about the digital future of publishing, we here at YUDU think it's great news to start the year with!


Children's Publishing
Research has shown that the children's market is the most stable - and 54% of U.S. children aged two-to-thirteen are reading ebooks. Parents are willing to pay more for enhanced books, which is great news for the publishers who are looking to add extra features into their books.

From a publishing perspective, Kate Wilson, from Nosy Crow summed it up nicely: 'reading is now directly competing with media and other games; we do not want reading to be the most boring thing a child can do on a phone or a tablet.'

Turn your friends and family into Collaborators..

Collaborating is the process of inviting others to review, edit or write with you. Collaborators should help you:
Summarize—If a reader has trouble summarizing the writer's argument, it's likely that the argument has a gap, or that its logic is unclear. Summarizing can help you to see where and how an argument has gone awry.

Reflect—If a particular point is unclear, it can be useful to try to reflect that point back to the writer: "What you seem to be saying here is..." The writer will usually see that his point is unclear and can then consider how to communicate the point more effectively to the reader.

Label—Writers appreciate it when their peers take the time to find and to name the problems in their papers. Reviewers can make a list of the problems they find on their project and can then work together with the writer to correct these problems.

Suggest—Writers seek advice. They don't simply want to know what's wrong with their writing; they want to know how to fix it.

A writer should say to himself, not, How can I get more money?, but How can I reach more readers (without lowering standards)?
