Seeing the non-fiction offerings that children are provided now makes me envious of them. The non-fiction from my era was usually a dry, boring text, often without pictures. Hanging off Jefferson's Nose is a great story accompanied by fabulous illustrations that will appeal to my students and amaze them at the same time.
I have enjoyed looking at Tina Nichols Coury's website as well. She has lots of great teacher ideas that I am excited to use!
