Thanks to Alyson at KidLitFrenzy for hosting this weekly challenge. There are so many wonderful non-fiction picture books these days - I just don't want to miss any of them!
Dolphin Baby! written by Nicola Davies and illustrated by Brita Granstrom
Told in narrative form - the story of how the dolphin baby survives from birth to adult. Just love it! It would make a wonderful read aloud.
Deadly! The Truth About the Most Dangerous Creatures on Earth by Nicola Davies and illustrated by Neal Layton
This book is about predators and other creatures that use deadly methods to survive. Gruesome, yet humorous cartoon-like illustrations that will certainly appeal to any kid that likes Animal Planet or National Geographic Channel. I love the way Nicola Davies ties one section to the next with lines that entice the reader to read on to find an even more gruesome or deadly creature.
On Earth by G. Brian Karas
This book does a wonderful job of introducing the reasons we have seasons by showing how the earth is constantly in motion - from day to night, season to season. I also like his Karas' book, Atlantic, which is another great information book, told lyrically, about the oceans of the world.
