Great Nonfiction Picture Books - May 28th

I ask my students to read nonfiction; so must I! This past week I read a couple picture books that are perfect for Kid Lit Frenzy's challenge.

I love Gail Gibbons!

I just picked up It's Snowing! and It's Raining!
From the illustrations, graphics, and clever words, these two books will be perfect addition to my weather books. I highly recommend these two if you teach weather in the lower grades. Both of these books had a reading level of 4.1 according to Accelerated Reader.

I first saw Meet the Howlers! by April Pulley Sayre on #IMWAYR (It's Monday! What are you Reading?)

It was every bit as wonderful as my book friends suggested. Loved the way Ms. Sayre worked a story into the pages of facts. This is a great way to introduce nonfiction to my young readers. Reading level of 3.5 on the AR scale.

Keep Reading!


  1. I've seen some of the Gail Gibbons books and they are wonderful, but don't know the 'howler' book. Thanks for sharing it, too.

  2. I recently read It's Raining! too. I enjoy Gail Gibbons's books. Meet the Howlers looks great! Thanks for sharing. :-)

  3. The Gail Gibbons books look really colorful and engaging - would love to check those out next time I visit our library. :)
