Non-fiction Animal Books for kids

Wendie's Wanderings: Nonfiction Monday - Little Kids First Big Book of Animals
National Geographic Little Kids First BIG Book of Animals by Catherine Hughes. 2010. Available now.

From the beginning photograph of the giraffe's head sticking out his purple tongue to the zebra at the end, staring at you as if asking if he can go home with you, this book is set up to fascinate youngsters and their older caretakers alike.

Thirty different animals are covered under chapters such as: Grassland, ocean, Desert, Forest, and Polar.

Don't let the 128 page thickness of the book put you off. This book is made for preschoolers and early readers. The wonderful National Geographic closeup photographs showing the animals in action or calmly watching the reader make you feel they are right in the room with you. And the large type, easy reading sentences simply invite early readers to come in and explore.

Despite the large size and thickness of the book, our material selectors have placed this book right where its readers can find it -- in the Easy Reading Nonfiction section of our libraries. (We have 10 branches in our library system.)

I've always wanted to do that with my kids and I think I'm going to start with DD who is in PreK. We go to the zoo or aquarium each week in the summer, so I think each week we will choose a theme animal and tailor worksheets and activities around that. For example, the first week will be tiger, so we will read both fiction and non-fiction books about tigers, learn how to spell it, do tiger coloring pages, learn about the...
