Free Book Friday and ALA

Greetings from the Windy City! We’re in Chicago for the American Librarian Association (ALA) Annual Conference. If you’re attending ALA, make sure to stop by Lerner Publishing Group booth #1820 for free giveaways, drawings, and a look at our new Fall 13 books!
We also have a fantastic group of authors signing FREE copies of their books during the show so make sure to stop by our booth to say hello!

Now back to our regularly scheduled blog post. Congratulations to Sharon McGilvra who is the winner of William and the Lost Spirit from Graphic Universe! Sharon, please send an email to with the subject line “Free Book Friday” and tell us your mailing address so we can get your books in the mail.

We’re always hungry for great books so this week we’re giving away an entire set of our new What Is a Food Web? series from Searchlight Books™!

Help students find out all about food webs, or interconnected food chains, that exist in various types of ecosystems. Clear text, vibrant photos, and captions that inspire thought provide an excellent way to teach this Next Generation Science Standards topic.

Good luck!

    What a great new series! I could really use these for my students especially with all the new non-fiction common core standards. Love the crisp pictures and graphs. Would appreciate the opportunity to use these.

    With all the testing in the schools and the emphasis on reading and math, science suffers. These books will help our students to learn much needed facts in a fun way while they are reading. Many of our local schools no longer have science classes in elementary school because of the emphasis on reading connected to state testing. Such a tragedy.

    This would be an amazing addition for my kids with autism. The visuals would be extremely helpful in teaching them this topic.

    As a new science teacher, I would love to use these in my classroom! They would be perfect for my Life Science classes to help me incorporate the non-fiction reading element for the new standards. Thank you!
