unusual forms and formats in NF
Here is some nonfiction that presents itself in different format (one is a moveable lift-the-flap book for example, a fictional narrative with lots of spelling in it, too) and forms. Kids of all ages need to see that NF is a complex and layered genre, pone not easily defined (hence, we define it by what it is NOT).
BEATRICE SPELLS SOME LULUS AND LEARNS TO WRITE A LETTER by Cari Best with illustrations by Giselle Potter. FSG, 2013. Spelling is "spelling Bea's" favorite sport.
WALK THIS WORLD by Lotta Nieminen. Candlewick Press, 2013. Lift the flaps and see what is going on in different cities around the world.
FROG SONG by Brenda Guiberson with illustrations by Gennady Spirin. Holt, 2013. Learn about various species of frogs, their habitats, and their songs.
