I am excited to join Alyson Beecher and other friends in this weekly challenge. Finding great nonfiction picture books isn't a challenge anymore, there are so many wonderful books to be read now! The challenge is sharing them with as many people as possible so they can find this wealth of literature to share with our young readers. Thanks to Aly for starting this weekly link-up and thanks to all who join in!
Here are the NFPB that jumped out of the stacks this week!
Buried Sunlight: How Fossil Fuels Have Changed the Earth by Molly Bang
Informative text, I think would be great to show elementary students
how to read the complex text. Very informative notes at the back of the book.
Penny Chisholm's illustration are bright and eye catching.
Saturn Could Sail and Other Fun Facts by Laura Lyn DiSiena and Hannah Eliot
Great new addition to the series. This one is all about space - includes facts about
gravity, the sun, planets, stars and galaxies!
This would be a great addition for space units - even with the new standards,
individual pages could be used to reinforce concepts.
Emmanuel's Dream by Laurie Ann Thompson
This is a beautiful book about a great man who has
done much for his country in spite of a physical handicap.
I have such a connection with this book and glad
I could use it as a mentor text for my daughter!
I will be writing more about this book in a future post!
Can't wait to see the other NFPB this week!
