Nonfiction Wednesday

Thanks to Kid Lit Frenzy, I made a goal to read more nonfiction this year which I will be featuring on my blog every Wednesday.
Last week, I reviewed a Sandra Markle book called BATS!  BIGGEST! LITTLEST! and shared that my school is part of the 2013 Markle's Book Explorers.  Shortly after we received a signed copy of BATS! and some book swag, we received a signed copy of What If You Had Animal Teeth?
This is an hilarious nonfiction picture book about animal teeth and how they work.  Next to each photograph of an animal showing off its teeth is an illustration of a child with the same teeth and what would happen if you had those teeth. The kids loved it when I read it aloud.  We laughed and laughed!  We were also awed by the photographs of the animals.  There are facts about the various kinds of teeth in the animal kingdom and how they work with the kind of food each animal eats.  I love examples of creative nonfiction, and this one is very creative! Sandra Markle asked that we pay this book forward by raffling it off.  Here is the lucky winner:
Some other fans of the book wanted to get in on the fun:

What nonfiction have YOU read this week?


  1. Sounds like a sure hit! Thanks for recommending.

  2. Awesome! I loved reviewing this book a few weeks ago! We bought it at my son's bookfair and it's so great. I love the bright colors and the kids with animal teeth just cracked us up!
