- Collins Dictionary of First Names
A fully revised, expanded and updated edition of the Collins Guide to First Names, now in the handy B format. This book is designed to help you choose a name for your baby. Even parents who know what they want to call their child may well want to look at some of the possible forms the name can take, and find out something about its history and meaning, so the book contains as many names and variants as possible, from the top 10 names this year in England - Jack, Joshua, Thomas, James, Danile, Benjamin, William, Samuel, Jospeh, Oliver; Chloe, Emily, Jessica, Ellie, Sophie, Megan, Charlotte, Lucy, Hannah, Olivia to the rather less common Kai, Bethany, Claudia, Finn, Joel, Brett and Skye. Variations in names have been fully cross-referenced, unless they would fall next to the entry in which they can be found, so if you cannot find the name you want in the book, look for the nearest spelling and read the entry there.
- Oh Say Can You Say Di-no-saur?: All About Dinosaurs
"The T. Rex was strong, with teeth sharp as knives. When most dinos saw him, they ran for their lives!" And so Dr. Seuss' Cat in the Hat introduces young readers to the fiercest of all the many extinct reptiles featured in this exciting exploration of the Age of Dinosaurs. This title forms part of a series of books that takes an off-beat look at natural history through a fun combination of Seussian rhymes and zany illustrations. Aimed at early readers - from four to seven year olds - the books are designed to bridge the gap between concept books written for preschoolers and more formal non fiction titles that require fluent reading skills. By presenting the facts in a lively and rhythmic manner, they provide the critical foundation upon which complex facts and ideas can eventually be built.
