Nonfiction Monday Roundup is hosted today at Playing by the Book.

I selected Graphing Habitats, written by Sarah Medina. The book is part of the Real World Data series of nineteen titles designed to explain, explore and illustrate how a variety of graphs can be utilized to organize information about subjects ranging from habitats to sports. Written at a sixth-grade level, this would be an excellent crossover book for mathematics and science. The book includes a bibliography, glossary and websites.

Here is the answer to Friday's Famous First: "Grandpa was a song and dance man who once danced on the vaudeville stage." is from the Caldecott Award Winning Book Song and Dance Man, written by Karen Ackerman and illustrated by Stephen Gammell.
