Some new picture book favorites! A fairytale, a toddler book, and poetic nonfiction. Enjoy!
- Savage, Stephen. 2015. Supertruck. New York: Roaring Brook.
While tow truck and fire truck are out performing rescues, mild-mannered and bespectacled garbage truck "just collects the trash." It takes a snowstorm and an attachable snow plow to turn him into Supertruck! Simply told and simply illustrated for a young audience, this is a story of doing your job simply because it's the job that needs to be done. I like it!
Note: Despite its snowstorm theme, this one should be popular for the 2015, "Every Hero Tells a Story" summer reading theme.
- Sayre, April Pulley. 2015. Raindrops Roll. New York: Beach Lane.
A beautifully photographed, poetic look at rain - what it does and where it lands and how we see it. Simple, gorgeous science,
Have a great week, and don't forget to check out the posts on the Nonfiction Monday blog.
