Silver Dolphin 2014 New Releases
In 2014, our PLAY-DOH line of books grows even more with nine new titles and the creation of three new series. The Hands on Learning Series, Sound Series, and Story Fun Series will debut this spring and The Let’s Create Series and My First 100 Words Series will expand with the addition of colorful new books and kits. The PLAY-DOH books truly live up to their tag line…“Where Learning and Creativity Take Shape.”One blogger declared, “I LOVE these books with their bright, vivid Play-Doh colors and funky texture! They are durable enough to be toted around and read over and over by the child on their own as they develop that independence. It’s a great way to establish reading AND learning.”
We recently announced a licensing agreement with the Smithsonian Institution, the world’s largest museum and research complex, to produce novelty books-plus under the Smithsonian brand. Two new series are being developed titled Smithsonian Young Explorers for children ages 6 and up and Smithsonian Discover for ages 8 and up.The first two titles in the Smithsonian Young Explorers series – Oceans and Dinosaurs – come packed in a sturdy travel case with a book and toy combination including an illustrated poster and a giant 130-piece floor puzzle.The first two titles in the Smithsonian Discover series – Flight and Space – are bound as an interactive book with 12 fact cards and a large double-sided poster.
