I have continued to find children’s book and my son has brought many from school as well. The three books we read this week were, Storms, At the Pond, and Jordan’s Catch. Although all three books are completely different from each other, Storms and At the Pond were my favorite books as they are non fiction and my son, myself and other readers can learn valuable information from these books.
At the Pond, by David M. Schwartz is a great book about various animals, their habitat, what they eat, their bodies, etc. This is a super interesting book as it has many facts about several animals. Children would definitely enjoy this book, especially those children who enjoy animals and reading about then.
Jordan’s Catch by, Stephen Harrison is the story of a boy who plays baseball. One day his team was playing the final game and he missed when he was trying to catch the ball. Because of this, his team lost the game. He was absolutely sad because he was not able to catch the ball. Much to his surprise, his mother bought baseball tickets for him and his father to go watch a game for the towns team. Towards the end of the game, his home team needed one last catch (home run) in order to win the game. When the ball was strike, much to his surprise, the boy catched the ball and he was even on television. Of course, his hometown team won the final!
The storm, from National Geographic for kids, (accidentally deleted the picture) is a book about the various types of weather catastrophes that can happen when less expected. This book explains what makes certain things such as rain, tornadoes, lightning, earthquake, etc. happen. Unfortunately, this book seems to go well with all the horrible catastrophes happening at the moment in different parts of the world. This is a book which could be used during a science project or lesson plan about natural disasters.
