Nonfiction Monday

Nonfiction Monday is hosted today by A Teaching Life.

My selection is "Animals in Fall: preparing for winter" by Martha E. H. Rustad with illustrations by Amanda Enright.


Fall has finally arrived and here is a book for young readers that explores how animals use this season to prepare for winter.  Five short, easy-to-read chapters: Animals In Fall, Some Animals Go South,  Some Animals Sleep, Some Animals Change, and Ready for Winter lead youngsters through the basics of migration, hibernation and camouflage.  The text is completed with four sections titled: activity, glossary, learn more and index.

Enright's easy, cartoon-style art is a comfortable fit with the simple text.
