Nonfiction Monday

Friday is Constitution Day and this is Constitution Week so my selection is Constitution Day, written by Robin Nelson. This book is created for very young readers and is a lovely introduction to further study of the constitution. A colorful red, white, and blue format with large pictures and brief sentences makes the pages visually appealing and the text easy to access.

Here is the answer to Friday's Famous First:"You ever hear of the jazz playin' man, the man with the cats who would swing with his band?" is from the award winning (Coretta Scott King and Caldecott Honor) book - Duke Ellington: The Piano Prince and His Orchestra, written by Andrea Pinkney and illustrated by Brian Pinkney.

Thank you for posting at NONFICTION MONDAY today, Janet. I am delighted to know about this book for very young readers, a good one for me to explore for my first grade great niece who is quite interested in "all things about America" as she puts it!
