Nonfiction Monday -- Summer
Summer by Cynthia Amoroso and Robert B. Noyed. A Weather Watch book. Mankato, MN: Child's World, 2010. available now.
Useful for using with large groups, each double-page spread has a large, clear photograph on the right. The three sentences on the left could kick off a discussion from the group about the aspect of the season pictured there. Any word that might be difficult is printed in periwinkle (I love the color periwinkle, it's sort of a purplely-blue) and is explained in the Glossary at the back.
Other Weather Watch books include: Spring, Fall, Winter, Clouds, Rain, Snow, and Thunder & Lightning. These books are part of a graded reading set of books aimed at preschool to grade 2 and can be read by a child with a first grade reading level.
