Hi friends! This blog is for teachers and families- all for the sheer joy of literacy. When we are enthusiastic about reading and writing our students and our own kids become excited to read and write. I hope that we all can be models for those in our care- how did you show your passion for reading, writing, learning, language, or words today?? It's in those small, daily moments that we teach kids to love literacy.

Non Fiction Monday: We the People

HAPPY 4th of July! I've ran into People by Peter Spier several times in the last couple of months, so much so that I thought it was a new book! Now, as I write this, I realized that it was written in 1980. I think this is a great book for an elementary-aged student. They'll like reading the facts, but they'll LOVE meandering through the illustrations- they're just lovely, even 30 years later!

If you're a teacher, get this book for your classroom. It could be a wonderful discussion starter. And you're students will enjoy having it around!

If you haven't seen this book, check out some of the book's contents:

In this encyclopedic picture book, Spier celebrates humankind in all its diversity-how we are similar and how we are differnt; in what we wear, eat, play, and how we worship. Small vignettes fill each page, illustrating the wonderful variety that exists among peoples of different cultures and races.

I'm linking up:

Scoot on over to Book Muse to see other Non Fiction Monday book choices.

Be Well! Read on!
