19 Aug

This is a special Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge post because I just couldn’t wait until tomorrow to share these titles!

Trains Can Float: and other fun facts by Laura Lyn Disiena and Hannah Eliot, Illustrated by Pete Oswald [***]

I’ve mentioned a couple times before how much I love this series! Presenting facts in a rather conversational way and paired with colorful illustrations is a sure-fire way to get kids excited to read. This latest installment in the Did You Know? series is all about things that go with some side trips to tunnels and bridges! I highly recommend the books for any elementary school or library.

Mr. Cornell's Dream Boxes by Jeanette Winter [***]

Jeanette Winter delivers another fascinating biography. I really enjoyed the way she approached the storytelling aspect of it- as looking in more closely to the everyday life of Joseph Cornell the same way one would his creations!
