Nonfiction Monday, 5.04.09

http://blogs.scholastic.com/kid_lit/2009/05/nonfiction-monday-a-taste-of-asia.htmlhttp://kidslit.menashalibrary.org/2009/05/04/slither-and-crawl-eye-to-eye-with-reptiles/Nonfiction Monday takes place right here today. Many of the children's book blogs post about nonfiction for kids on Mondays, so leave a link in the comments if you're participating. I will update throughout the day.

Nonfiction.monday My contribution is an older post about Bianca Lavies' Gathering of Garter Snakes; you'll likely find the photo-filled picture book in the public or school library. Lavies was once a National Geographic photographer, and her snake pics are excellent. She writes about a place in Manitoba where thousands and thousands of garter snakes spend the winter and all exit the pit at about the same time in the spring. Read the post here.

I wrote this last week, but in the flurry of poetry posts, I think it got lost. I reviewed Brian Floca's new book, Moonshot: The Flight of Apollo 11.


Hi Susan!
