Nonfiction Picture Book Wednesday: Mock Sibert Part III - More Picture Books

Since I do try to read comments and tweets, I am responding to requests for making one more list for those who have decided to join in and give a Mock Sibert Award Challenge a try but need titles that they can easily read and share with their students.  So this post, will include five more picture books.

Here are five additional picture books to add to your list:

A Chicken Followed Me Home!: Questions and Answers About a Familiar Fowl by Robin Page (Beach Lane Books, May 2015) - This question and answer format is just right in providing younger readers with lots of great information about chickens. 

Trombone Shorty by Troy Andrews, Illustrated by Bryan Collier (Abrams Books for Young Readers, April 2015) - I found this autobiographical picture book fascinating to read and Collier's illustrations are gorgeous. I wouldn't be surprised if it was honored with a Coretta Scott King Award for story and illustrations.

Poet: The Remarkable Story of George Moses Horton by Don Tate (Peachtree Publishers, September 2015) - Another picture book biography that I enjoyed reading was POET. I loved learning about George Moses Horton and his life and writing. 

Earmuffs for Everyone!: How Chester Greenwood Became Known as the Inventor of Earmuffs by Meghan McCarthy (Simon & Schuster, January 2015) - I am a big fan of McCarthy's work and was particularly intrigued in how she wrote this story. An excellent choice for older students to discuss when thinking about who is really the inventor of something.

I, Fly: The Buzz About Flies and How Awesome They Are by Bridget Heos; Illustrated by Jennifer Plecas (Henry Holt and Co., March 2015) - I thoroughly enjoyed both the humor and information packed into this book. Heos is quite talented in putting the two together. 

This will be my last Mock Sibert post for a few weeks. Happy reading and I hope that you will link up your Mock Sibert predictions so that everyone can read them.  If you do not have a blog, please feel free to share your top Mock Sibert pick in the comments.
