I’ve never participated in this before, so I have no idea if I’m doing it right! And I’m a day early, because Thursday is 15 Words or Less Day here at my blog. But here are 10 rhyming nonfiction picture books I have loved. Some I wish I had written. Others, I’m just glad the authors wrote:>) I hope you fall in love with some of these books as much as I have.
They are full of lively language, great information, and great art! Thank you to all these writers–and many more–whose work brings me so much joy!
There’s some odd cropping going on, so here are the full covers:
Amy’s ability to pick ONE tiny detail serves this book wonderfully.
Jennifer brings flawless meter and wonderful voice to this book.
Rita uses a unique rhyme scheme/meter and structure here. (Why are there so many fabulous rhyming books about birds?)
I adore Linda’s work. This book, along with the one below, is what inspired me to write rhyming nonfiction years ago.
I love how succinctly Lola explains the scientific process of eruption and land formation. Crazy good!
Gripping space drama by Linda!
Miranda’s text just flows–appropriately enough–and surprises.
You can always count on April for insight into nature and pure wildlife appreciation!
I’m new to Susan’s work. Vivid art and brief rhymes — love it!
I seriously didn’t know a topic like composting could be so much fun until I read Mary’s book.
