What’s new in nonfiction at Leveled Reader:
Lots of teachers ask for high quality nonfiction titles to add to their classroom libraries. At Leveled Reader we have some fantastic new nonfiction books to share with you! You’re going to love these.
It can be a bit challenging to find good nonfiction books that are leveled at the A through D levels. But we have found some for the youngest readers. First, we have Chicks! by Sandra Horning in our C-D Set 5, in which a family brings home chicks from a local farm, and shows exactly what is needed to raise chicks. This book is somewhere between fiction and nonfiction, but definitely qualifies as informational text, with its clear step-by-step description of the process, and realistic illustrations. You’ll find On a Farm by Alexa Andrews in A-B Set 5, a very simple first reader with lots of repetition and big, clear photos of farm animals. Also at the A-B level is Jump, Pup! an adorable book all about a puppy’s playful day. It’s published by the National Geographic Society, and has fabulous pictures that illustrate the text perfectly.
Our E-F Set 6 includes Wolf Pup, a popular choice, which follows a young pup from the day of his birth to his first winter. It’s an engaging introduction to nature studies from the American Museum of Natural History.
In G-H-I Set 6, one of our favorite books is back in print! Best Friends: The True Story of Owen and Mzee. It’s the heartwarming tale of a baby hippo and a very old tortoise who adopt each other in an animal sanctuary in Kenya.
Seal Pup Rescue in L-M Set 5 is the wonderfully written story of Leopard the Seal Pup and the boy who watches over him as he waits on the beach for his mother. Also at the L-M level is Lenore Finds a Friend: A True Story From Bedlam Farm. It tells the story of Lenore, a dog who just wants to be friends with any of the animals on the farm. She doesn’t give up, and forges a friendship with a most unlikely member of the herd.
We have lots more fantastic new nonfiction titles to share with you, so stay tuned for more nonfiction books for kids next time.
