Every Wednesday I join Alyson Beecher from kidlitfrenzy and other
kidlit bloggers to share wonderful nonfiction picture books.
The intention of today's blog is to give educational professionals
new nonfiction reading material and ideas to use
with students to promote a love of reading nonfiction materials.
Nonfiction picture books seem to get better and better. One of the ways they have improved, is the interest level. The ways the authors are composing their books to make them appeal to readers. One of the text structures is using a narrative format with factual information. Here's a few books that have found success with this structure:
Don't Like Snakes by Nicola Davies
Big Red Kangaroo by Claire Saxby
I'm Trying to Love Spiders by Bethany Barton
Tree of Wonder by Kate Messner
Flowers Are Calling by Rita Gray
I Fly: The Buzz About Flies and How Awesome They Are by Bridget Heos
Raindrops Roll by April Pulley Sayre
Water is Water by Miranda Paul
Try some of these books to encourage nonfiction reading!
