Nonfiction Wednesday

 I'm excited that Alyson Beecher, at Kid Lit Frenzy, is continuing her Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge for the third year in a row. 

More creative nonfiction this week!

Handle with Care: An Unusual Butterfly Journey


This is a beautiful and interesting book about a box of pupae shipped to a museum in Boston from a butterfly farm in Costa Rica. Burns chronicles the life cycle of a butterfly in this innovative and captivating book, filled with gorgeous photographs. Now I want to visit Costa Rica!

Feathers: Not Just for Flying


What a great addition to our unit on creative nonfiction! Stewart teaches us fascinating information about feathers through similes. There were a lot of things I didn't know about the way birds use their feathers. The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous - I love the color tones and the scrapbook-like design. Great author's note at the end. I will definitely be purchasing this for our classroom library.
