Sometimes I forget about Toon Books, and then something jogs my memory and I go in search of new releases that I missed. As I was putting together some literacy resources for the teachers I work with, I went in search of the Toon Books website and was reminded about all of the reasons I have loved Toon Books in the past.
Here are some new or newish titles that I am eager to check out…
3x4 by Ivan Brunetti (Toon Books, September 4, 2018) - Check out a few interior spreads from the book. I love the combination of art and math. I have always loved combining math and art as part of the school curriculum.
This is a title by the same author that came out last year…
Wordplay by Ivan Brunetti (Toon Books, May 2017) - Word play can be a lot of fun and from the interior pages (see below) I like how the text and illustrations work together.
And of course, I can’t leave out nonfiction…
Snails are Just My Speed! by Kevin McCloskey (Toon Books, April 2018) - Toon Books have a series of nonfiction Level 1 books (what they label as Level 1 may be appropriate for slightly more skilled readers due to the topic specific vocabular). I have enjoyed a number of them in the past and this one looks just as fun.
