Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge: What I am Reading? - August 23, 2017

With a super busy start of the school year, I haven't had the chance to do as much nonfiction reading as I would like. However, here are a few titles that I was able to read recently.

Let's Investigate With Nate: The Solar System by PBS Host Nate Ball; Illustrated by Wes Hargis (Published August 1st 2017 by HarperCollins)

This series by Nate Ball can be read once through with the dialogue bubbles and then with the text.

Hidden Dangers: Seek and Find 13 of the World's Deadliest Animals by Lola M. Schaefer; Illustrated by Tymn Armstrong (August 8th 2017 by Chronicle Books) - I don't have an interior image of this book, but I love the illustrations in the book and I am thinking about ways to use this as a mentor text.

Full of Fall by April Pulley Sayre (August 29th 2017 by Beach Lane Books)

The third book in this series is the follow up to Raindrops Roll and Best in Snow.  Though I loved the first two books, this may just be my favorite because I love fall.

Engineered! Engineering Design at Work by Shannon Hunt; Illustrated by James Gulliver Hancock (September 5th 2017 by Kids Can Press)

This book is busy and has a lot of text and illustrations making it a great book for pairs or trios of children to share and discuss as they linger on individual pages. 

Look for all of these titles at your local indie bookstore or community library.
