Nonfiction Monday because we NEED information

nonfiction monday Nonfiction Monday because we NEED informationI love nonfiction. More importantly I love reading and learning new information everyday. I have been mentally compiling a list of all the new true things I learned about this weekend while we were moving. After everyone shares their nonfiction entries today, I’ll post my list at the bottom. Take a moment to ponder what you’ve learned recently. As they say, “Truth is stranger than fiction.” Let’s share the love of learning new truths.

Mary Ann is sharing the top 10 circulated graphic novels in our school library. Many libraries shelve these within their nonfiction sections, so it seemed a good fit for nonfiction Monday. She actually has them set aside in their own section, and kids eat them up! http://greatkidbooks.blogspot.com/2011/06/top-graphic-novels-at-our-school-ages-5.html
