Things to Do for Kids of All Ages | 1 July 2015Hello from QEB Publishing! Share article facebook twitter google pinterest “Edutainment is the key focus of QEB’s approach—we aim to both educate and entertain” explains Zeta Jones, Publisher. “Humor, fresh design, and great illustrations combine to make learning engaging and fun for children aged between four and eleven. QEB’s diverse range of titles covers everything from innovative nonfiction to clever and highly original picture books”. Could a Penguin Ride a Bike? (May, 15) is a title that perfectly embodies our “edutainment” spirit. The book, which is part of the What If a… series, gives a humorous and fun introduction to the life of a penguin by relating the bird to everyday situations. This way each animal characteristic instantly becomes more memorable to the reader, and allows children to easily understand and retain animal facts: In addition to titles on the natural world, last month 50 Things You Should Know About The Second World War was published to commemorate the 70th anniversary since the end of the war. Following our popular 2014 title, 50 Things You Should Know About the First World War, this series is brilliant at introducing new and complex topics with just the right amount of detail for ages seven and above. Keep a look out for QEB’s next blog post, where we’ll be delving a bit deeper into this series! 23 Things to Do Before You are 11½ (August) will be published in the height of summer and will offer a variety of projects to make in your own backyard! With just a small amount of help needed from an adult, readers can learn how to use tools safely, tie useful knots, make campfire firelighters, rope ladders, and even fishing nets! Special “Eco Dude” projects have also been designed to help readers take care of the environment and recycle available material. These titles will accompany wellknown backlist titles, for instance The Nearsighted Giraffe from our Storytime series, the wonderful Great Big Book of Magic Tricks and Blow Your Nose, Big Bad Wolf from our hilarious Fairytales Gone Wrong series.
