Non-Fiction Wednesday #NFPB2014

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.

QED Lifecycle Series 
I have several collections of non-fiction books published by QED, which I think is a UK publisher.  A librarian friend of mine has given me several sets on different topics.  This set on Life Cycles I purchased from sales group that regularly visits our schools and sells all sorts of things, from candles to toys to cookbooks.  It's the only thing I have ever purchased from the group!  I think the collection cost less than $15-20!  The books have beautiful photographs and includes labels, diagrams and a glossary.  They are great reads for my second graders.  This series on life cycles does mention the term "mating" but obviously doesn't go into a lot of details.   I think it is very age-appropriate.

Curious Critters by David Fitzsimmons
Full page photographs of various creatures.  The accompanying text is written in first person from the point of view of each creature.  Visit the website.
