#road2reading Challenge - early reader nonfiction books 3.08.18

All journeys have a starting place.
This is a weekly place to find books and tools 
that you may use with readers at the start of their reading journey.
Join in the conversation at #road2reading.

I know I share a lot of early reading picture books, early chapter books and transitional chapter books on here, but it's always harder for me to find some early reading nonfiction material!  But I've got some new(er) ones to share today!

Who Am I? by Robin Page
Who Am I? An Animal Guessing Game
by Steve Jenkins and Robin Page
Written for a younger audience, it also is a great book for the English Language Learner because it lets them play with vocabulary that centers around common animals.  For example, the clues for a rabbit: "I have springy back legs, a fluffy white tail, a twitchy pink nose, two long, furry ears, and a carrot to munch!"  I could also see primary and elementary students using this to study adjectives!

well-known nonfiction author, Sarah Albee, has several books published under the Harper Collins "I Can Read!" series:

George Washington: The First President
George Washington: the First President
illustrated by Chin Ko

A Peaceful Leader by Sarah Albee
Martin Luther King Jr.: A Peaceful Leader

Alexander Hamilton: A Plan for America
Alexander Hamilton: a Plan for America

publishes May 1st

American Girl has partnered with Scholastic to publish some early chapter books about some pretty incredible women!

A Girl Named Hillary: The True Story of Hillary Clinton (American Girl: A Girl Named)
A Girl Named Hillary

A Girl Named Rosa: The True Story of Rosa Parks (American Girl: A Girl Named)
A Girl Named Rosa

I'm excited to have these nonfiction options for our younger readers!
