Nonfiction Monday

Picture Book of the Day

Seabird in the Forest
by Joan Dunning (Author, Illustrator)

Booktalk: Until the 1970s, no one knew where the marbled murrelet laid its eggs. The little bird seemed to live entirely at sea.

Snippet: For thousands of years murrelet chicks have simply waited, all alone, high above the forest floor, waited for their paernts to return each day with a little silver fish…waited a whole month to grow up…and so will this one.

Chapter Book of the Day

Seeing Red: The True Story of Blood
by Tanya Lloyd Kyi (Author) and Steve Rolston (Illustrator)
122 pages

Booktalk: Gory and fascinating (and if you’re a vampire, delicious) blood is at the heart of human life. Take a stab at understanding this vital fluid via a mix of science, history, pop culture, and even cookery.

Snippet: Today the average grade four student probably understands more about blood than the world’s most educated doctor did 500 years ago. Back then, blood was seen as one of many important but mysterious boldily fluids–something doctors tried to measure and regulate.

  1. I like the idea of that Seabird Forest. Looks like a special book, Anastasia, & The Story of Blood will be great for students studying the body systems, etc. There is so much out there for young students to learn from! Thanks!


  2. Love the cover of Seeing Red! Either that, or my being a nurse makes me naturally drawn to it. Thank you for sharing! 🙂
