New Early Non-Fiction

I love picture books, and I love sharing them with kids. Sometimes, however, parents ask for non-fiction books that are appropriate for younger kids. We just received two new titles that are great examples of early non-fiction books that are sure to delight both parents and children.

Monkey ColorsMonkey Colors
by Darrin Lunde

Monkeys come in many colors. Some are brown, some are red, and some are gold. Some have orange feet, and some have pink lips. One monkey even has a blue face, yellow cheeks, a red tail, and a white moustache. Young naturalists meet twelve monkeys from around the world in this playful introduction to colors.

Clothesline Clues to Jobs People DoClothesline Clues to Jobs People Do
by Kathryn Heling and Deborah Hembrook

Through lively, accessible verse, readers identify recognizable careers that are fundamental to most communities. Look on and below seven clotheslines and spot colorful items, including the mail carrier’s uniform, the artist’s brushes, and the chef’s apron. Then turn the page to learn which professionals wear and use the special gear in the jobs they do. Clever illustrations show the workers helping one another, and in the end, everyone joins together for a celebration that is out of this world.

Enjoy!
