With the upcoming holiday looming in the background, we have some new non-fiction books in the Young Readers’ Room that you can check out to read when you have some free time! Please peruse the **NEW** non-fiction bookshelf to read each of these titles.
The first book you will enjoy reading is a fun book about gardening, “How to Say Hello to a Worm, a First Guide to Outside,” written by Kari Percival. Geared for readers and listeners, ages 2 and up, this beautifully illustrated book will help youngsters learn how to begin a garden. Taking much care, gentleness, and patience will guide young learners as they prepare for spring! A must-have for our curious, dirt-digging little ones! You can find this title at call number J635 P412h.
The second suggestion is a Pete the Cat title, “Pete the Cat and the Sprinkle Stealer,” written by Kimberly and James Dean. This title is also a part of the “I Can Read Comics” series, Level 1. Written in graphic novel format, Secret Agent Meow is on the case of the missing ingredients for a baking contest. Will Secret Agent Meow solve the case before the contest is over? Will there be sprinkles in the contest? Please read this new Pete the Cat offering soon! You can find this title at J741.5 D345ps.
Most everyone has heard a Mother Goose tale in their lifetime, but have you read, “The Real Dada Mother Goose, A Treasury of Complete Nonsense,” an anthology put together by Jon Scieszka? This book will make a great family discussion time together as you discuss the absurdity of these rhymes! I’d like to hear about the rhymes you and your family come up with after reading these anagrams, simile excessiveness, Morse codes, and more! Find this title at J398.2 Sci27r.
“Facing Life’s Challenges” contains “Facing: Bigotry; Bullying; Death; Discrimination; Divorce; Peer Pressure; Serious Illness; and Uncertainty.” Each of these challenging subjects are met with an easy-to-read font and text, photographs, and a “Goal and Tools” section in the back so kids and their families can continue the conversation if needed. Each of these titles is found under their corresponding Dewey Decimal subject call number. Please ask a staff member for assistance if you’d like to read this series.
The “Building Blocks of Computer Science” set consists of: “Algorithms; Coding Languages; Debugging; Hardware; The Internet; Logic in Coding; Order in Coding; and Organizing Data.” Written in graphic novel form, these titles simplify the computer science topic for kids. These books offer a glossary and online links at the back of each title.
We look forward to seeing you browse the shelves and find the perfect book(s) for your youngster, or even yourself!
