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!
