Nonfiction Monday

Picture Book of the Day

Weird but True Weather (Weird But True Science)
by Carmen Bredeson (Author)

Booktalk: Snow donuts? Dust devils? Clouds that look like flying saucers? Can this really be true? Find out in this easy-to-read information book.

Rain: This water fell on the dinosaurs!
Rain falls on you. Rain fell on the dinosaurs. It might be the same rain. Water on Earth is used over and over. It is called the water cycle.

Chapter Book of the Day

Don’t Behave Like You Live in a Cave (Laugh & Learn)
by Elizabeth Verdick (Author) and Steve Mark (Illustrator)
128 pages

Booktalk: Full-color cartoons and humorous, kid-friendly text teach kids how to make smarter choices about how they behave at home and at school so they stay out of trouble, feel good about themselves and their choices, and get along better with family, friends, and teachers.

Snippet: This book isn’t about turning you into a “perfect” person, a goody-goody, the teacher’s pet, or some kind of robot-kid. Instead, it can help you take a look at how you act and how other people react. Do your actions help you–or do they hurt you?

Nonfiction Book Blast 2012

12 for 2012
by Anastasia Suen, panel moderator

Happy New Year, everyone! It’s time to introduce the Nonfiction Book Blast panel for 2012…

Beginning next Monday, these twelve nonfiction authors will be sharing booktalks and activities for your classroom and library. On Nonfiction Monday through the winter and the spring, they will take you behind the scenes of their new books. Each author will share twice, so this series will last from January 9th to June 18th. On the first day of summer, the big event arrives…

The American Library Association will hold its 2012 Annual Conference in Anaheim, CA from June 21–26. I’m happy to say that ALSC has invited Nonfiction Book Blast: Booktalks and Activities for Your Library to be on the program again this year!

Save the date! June 23, 2012 Nonfiction Book Blast 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.

    1. I’d love to see you! (Not sure about a call for papers- I sent in this proposal last May. They plan very far in advance.)
