Hot off the Press - Blue Apple Book's Spring 2009 catalog! December 15, 2008 00:13
Here are scanned pages from the catalog showing the Greetings from Kiwi and Pear book and the Travel Flash Cards!(Greetings from Kiwi and Pear - left side of spread) "Travel around the world with Kiwi and Pear! - Kiwi and Pear are a pair of monkeys who do everything together, and now they're off on a trip around the world. They travel to every continent, visiting penguins in Antarctica and llmas in Peru, snapping photos of the Eiffel Tower in Paris and the pyramids at Giza, snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and touring the Taj mahal in India. The rhyming text and sweet illustrations are presented on gatefold pages, and at the back of the book is a map where readers can follow Kiwi and Pear's adventures by putting a sticker on each country they visit." (Greetings from Kiwi and Pear - right side of spread) (Kiwi and Pear Travel Learning Cards) "Travelling is fun and easy with Kiwi and Pear - These flash cards, shaped like little suitcases, are the perfect complement to Greetings from Kiwi and Pear. Each card features a picture with its name in both English and Spanish: plane and aeroplano, suitcase and maleta, swimsuit and traje de baño. The cards are held together by a ring on a spiral cord that can be clipped onto a child's backpack. They are a valuable language tool for families planning trips, or for parents who want to talk to their children about foreign languages and places." Kiwi and Pear even got a spot on the back cover of the catalog!
