Got to say I am completely in love with reading non-fiction to my baby. Bonus this book has really big colour pictures which definitely grabs his attention. #library #kidsnonfiction

Slow lemonade stand day. Noticed the kids came in and got library books without my noticing to read while they waited for customers 😍

Jeannie Baker‘s amazing collage creations add to the wonder of the natural world that is her subject. In Circle, she describes the migration of a bar-tailed godwit, a bird that makes the longest unbroken journey of any animal in the world: 9 days & nights. Human changes to the environment make life harder for many species, including godwits, and Baker shows rather than tells this important information. Picture book for all ages. #Oz #kidlit

Jeannie Baker uses textiles and feathers along with other materials to make her collage illustrations.

DrexEdit Beautiful! 😍 7mo
Cathythoughts Wow , gorgeous 7mo
Lindy @DrexEdit @Cathythoughts All of Jeannie Baker‘s art is amazing. She often incorporates plant materials , which she preserves and then colours; the effect is breathtaking. 7mo

Cod's Tale | Mark Kurlansky
post image

Realized yesterday that we have two books about fish written by the same author and purchased almost 10 years apart. We got The Cod's Tale at a museum gift shop in Gloucester our first year in MA, and then World Without Fish we got this year for my son's Build Your Library curriculum. Thanks to Mark Kurlansky, we know more about cod reproduction than I ever expected to.

mrsmarch Kurlansky also wrote one for grownups which is amazing 1y
ImperfectCJ @mrsmarch Thanks for the rec. I've been thinking about checking that one out. With as much as he's enjoyed these Kurlansky books aimed at young audiences, my 11yo might like Cod, too. 1y
mdm139 I will have to check these out. My kid is obsessed with sea creatures. 1y

ImperfectCJ @mdm139 Both are good, but The Cod's Tale is a little more... light-hearted, if I remember correctly. World Without Fish is focused on humans' role in destroying ocean habitat, which is important but kind of a downer. Sy Montgomery has some great books for kids and grownups, if you haven't checked those out yet. Her The Soul of an Octopus is written for adults, but my daughter and I read it together when she was fairly young (under 12). 1y
mdm139 @ImperfectCJ I loved Soul of an Octopus. They are now my favorite sea creature. I also recommend the My Octopus Teacher documentary on Netflix. I think it just won an Oscar. 1y
ImperfectCJ @mdm139 I'll have to check out My Octopus Teacher. Thanks for the recommendation! 1y

Chasing Cheetahs by Sy Montgomery is a story about a woman named Laurie Marker's who quest is to save the African cats. She has been studying, breeding, and saving cheetahs for thirty years. The book is very informative and entertaining for all ages. Laurie discovered that cheetahs kept in captivity had few chances to breed because the species needs security and privacy.

olivia_danko Therefore, zoos and parks just weren't quite enough for the cats. She opened a conservation research center to help save the cheetahs.
This non-fiction and award-winning Orbis Pictus book would be best taught using UDL 1.2 (Offer alternatives for auditory information) reading aloud the interesting facts about cheetahs may engage students more rather than independent reading.
The ELS strategy I'd use is

olivia_danko 42. (Have students use timelines to arrange and sequence important facts and information). This would organize all the facts they learn and showcase the importance of saving cheetahs.
With the following lesson plan:

DrSpalding You picked some wonderful award winners. When looking at the front cover, this book screams science however this could also be used in a social studies unit in relation to geography and where cheetahs live on the planet. 1y

Chasing Cheetahs: The Race to Save Africa‘s Fastest Cats is a nonfiction book by Sy Montgomery with pictures by Nic Bishop. This Orbis Picture Recommended Book focuses on the dwindling population of the amazing cat. This book would be best used as partner reading since it is nonfiction, some students may have a harder time staying focused without the help of a peer. A website resource for assistance with an activity for the partner reading is

emilypalkovich http://symontgomery.com/class-activities/. This is the authors website and it includes activities for the book. A UDL strategy for this would be to provide options for recruiting interest because when reading a nonfiction book students tend to get disinterested more often. An EL strategy for this book would be number number 22: give enough time for EL‘s to respond to questions, meaning EL‘s may need more time to complete worksheets or answer 1y
