Kids will learn that nothing is more powerful than oral history. Words spoken and tales told completely unfiltered by others can teach young people not only the facts, but the very soul of what happened in the past. Hear the people of the past in their own words through diaries, interviews, quotations, poetry, and songs.

“My Little Yellow Taxi” is an interactive hardcover novelty book that invites kids to take a spin in a shiny yellow cab. The book includes 16 interactive features that show eager young drivers what it takes to get a taxi ready to roll: The mirror needs to be adjusted, the oil needs to be checked, the engine needs to be started, and there’s more to do. For instance, a cut-out puzzle piece of a gas pump can be removed from the book, then inserted into the gas tank — once the cap’s been opened. A clock on each page counts down the minutes, introducing the concept of telling time. Once the taxi has been readied by the various activities, a little cardboard taxi in the back of the book can be removed for play. With its sturdy construction, the taxi is built to be “driven” again and again. “My Little Yellow Taxi” is an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award Winner, and is the third in a series by Stephen T. Johnson, which includes “My Little Blue Robot” and the best-selling “My Little Red Toolbox.” Launch date: October 2006.

Critics back in the 1500’s thought Leonardo da Vinci had bats in his belfry when he drew plans for a flying machine that looked and worked like the wings of a bat. Scientists today, however, know there is a lot to be learned from these incredible animals. Because bats’ brains are built for "seeing" with sound, scientists are now studying this special bat skill to build robots that use echolocation to navigate in the dark. Kids will love exploring the mysterious world of the planet’s only flying mammal in this cool book packed with amazing information and awesome illustrations. Then they’ll get a chance to build their very own robotic bat — complete with light-up eyes and flapping wings! The model can hang from a post and attach to a door, or stand on a perch.
