Nonfiction children’s book author and thought leader, Melissa Stewart, shared the following post on Nerdy Book Club today and it blew my mind a little. Even though I am an informational/nonfiction book writer, my first ideas for back-to-school books are fiction. That’s crazy, right?
Melissa reminds us in this post that informational/nonfiction books play an important role in our children’s understanding of what it means to go to school. She provides three titles that can augment and enhance this theme. In the process, readers learn about communities outside of their own experiences and can begin to appreciate a broader world.
Check out the post and the books. And creators, what back-to-school or school-life experience might you bring to the table? Thanks, Melissa. My wheels are turning!
