Lerner Publishing Group Introduces Cloverleaf Books™ and Searchlight Books™— Incredible New Brands for Elementary Readers!

MINNEAPOLIS--()--Lerner Publishing Group is thrilled to announce Cloverleaf Books™ and Searchlight Books™—two all-new brands, developed with elementary students in mind.

Designed for grades K-2, Cloverleaf Books contain bright, eye-catching art and picture book designs to capture young readers’ attention. The playful, imaginative texts read like fiction but deliver core information, and a kid-friendly approach make key concepts more accessible while supporting curriculum standards. The charming, story-like format will entice kids to read each book again and again. Cloverleaf Books are perfect for class read-alouds, small group practice, and independent reading, and every book includes an activity (recipe, craft, experiment, etc.) that kids can do on their own or with minimal supervision.

Perfect for grades 3-5, Searchlight Books are simple, straightforward nonfiction texts that build kids’ expository reading skills. Experienced science authors clearly explain nonfiction concepts and provide informational texts, examples and details that build understanding. The full-color photographs and illustrated diagrams included provide additional support for content knowledge, and chapter-opening photo captions include a question to spur critical thinking and support reading comprehension. Many Searchlight Books include hands-on demonstrations or experiments to clarify key concepts and give readers ways to test their knowledge, while nonfiction book features—including a table of contents, frequent subheads, glossary, and index—make the books easy to use for reports and research. The respectful tone of these texts makes the books ideal for differentiated instruction.

“Our Cloverleaf Books and Searchlight Books brands were developed to support curricular standards and reflect our continued commitment to produce high-quality books for the school and library market,” explained Adam Lerner, president and publisher, Lerner Publishing Group. “The picture book format of Cloverleaf Books will engage early elementary readers who are new to nonfiction, and Searchlight Books will impress upper elementary teachers with their hands-on approach to science curriculum.”
