Nonfiction Picture Book Wednesday 2.04.15


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!

Thanks to NetGalley, I've read some new Nonfiction Picture Books.
Check these out soon!

The Red Bicycle: The Extraordinary Story of One Ordinary Bicycle
The Red Bicycle: The Extraordinary Story of One Ordinary Bicycle by Jude Isabella
The story itself is a narrative story and mostly fiction, but it tells the story
of a bicycle, a much loved and hoped for bicycle, and how it meant
the world to three different people.
The book is meant to show how donating a used bicycle can help
many people across the world.  Great explanations and resources 
are shared at the back of the book.

Product Details
School Days Around the World by Margriet Ruurs
The third in the "Around the World" series by Kids Can Press, 
this book compares and contrasts what a day at school looks like
 in various countries around the world. 
This could be a good mentor text showing compare/contrast, 
but also for writing a good wrap up/conclusion.

Head Lice
Head Lice by Elise Gravel
You won't be able to read this one without your scalp
starting to itch!  Another one in the Disgusting Critters series,
Head Lice will intrigue you with facts, and make you
cringe as you read it!

The Spider
The Spider by Elise Gravel
This book had many facts that I think kids already 
know about spiders, and not as many unknown facts.
Kids will still enjoy reading this book from the Disgusting
Critters series, laughing at the humor but learning
a few things while they go.

Happy Nonfiction Reading!


  1. I have promised to purchase these next two Elise Gravel titles. My students adore the humour and the illustrations a lot - as well as searching for new or known facts. Lots of fun! Looking over these titles, I think all of them would make a great addition to our nonfiction collection! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Nice to know about the disgusting critters series - I could see its possible appeal to young children, most definitely!
