Junior Information Seekers
March 22, 2011
Picture books are fantastic for the preschool crowd. However, just like adults sometimes thirst for factual information, kids are eager to know about the real world, too. We have a whole section that is perfect for them—juvenile non-fiction.
My three-and-a-half-year-old daughter reminded me of this today. When I asked her what she would like from the library, she requested books about bunnies. I asked if she wanted stories or real-life bunny books. My little girl declared that she wanted to know about the real ones. I checked out Rabbit by Jean Coppendale, See How Rabbits Grow by Kathryn Walker, and Rabbits by Fiona Patchett.
So, if your young ones are curious about the world beyond their own experiences, juvenile non-fiction books are the perfect stepping-stones on their quest for knowledge.
