Take the blah out of boring

27 10 2010

Good, motivating, interesting nonfiction books are always hard to find for kids. This is the genre that my kids struggle to find a good book that they can get hooked on. I came across some brand new nonfiction books that take the blah out of boring non-fiction- The INSIDE Series.

The books I have are INSIDE Human Body, INSIDE Hurricanes, INSIDE Tornadoes, and INSIDE Dinosaurs.

These books are definitely visually appealing, when you open them up they have horizontal and vertical gatefolds (pages that fold out). The writing is clear with fascinating facts for kids. Included in each book is an index, glossary of words to know, a bibliography and a listing of websties to find out more information.

This is the kind of book that will get kids interested in a topic and then will help them continue their interest  to further their learning. I can’t wait to book talk these books and see their eyes light up when I tell them these are new non-fiction books they can check out! 🙂
