Nonfiction Monday May 11, 2009
Posted by caribookscoops on May 11, 2009
Welcome to Nonfiction Monday! For those of you new to Nonfiction Monday, its a weekly event hosted by various blogs throughout the kidlitosphere. All you do is put a link to a nonfiction kidlit book you have read in the comments and we will update through out the day.
We are excited to be hosting this week and for today Cari reviewed Secrets of a Civil War Submarine: Solving the Mysteries of the H.L. Hunley by Sally M. Walker. A wonderful book full of adventure and intrigue about the first successful submarine attack and later the recovery of the submarine upon it’s discovery in August of 2009. Lots of appeal for science, history or math buffs! A great read for older children – I used it in my 8th grade U.S. History class. Holly reviewed My Own Two Feet by Beverly Cleary. A follow-up to A Girl From Yamhill, the first autobiography of Beverly Cleary. Both are great books for middle readers and above who identified with any of Beverly’s many lovable quirky characters- Ramona, Beezus, Henry and Ribsy, etc. I wish I’d had these books for a few English papers I had to do once upon a time.
