Non-Fiction Monday and a Giveaway!

April is winding down, but I still have at least two more giveaways to share with you today! I have 5 copies of S is for Save the Planet: A How-to-be-Green Alphabet to give to you all! Just leave a comment on this Non-Fiction Monday posting by Thursday night at midnight, mountain time, to to enter.

Blog about the giveaway, tweet about it, Facebook about it, and get extra entries. Just make sure to leave a new comment for each extra entry :)

Now, S is for Save the Planet is another is the fantastic Alphabet series put out by Sleeping Bear Press. I've reviewed many of these books and love them educational and great for a whole range of age levels. This particular title in the series is written by Brad Herzog and illustrated (beautifully) by Linda Holt Aryiss.

Each letter is dedicated to a different manner in which children can participate in saving our planet. From switching light bulbs, not using helium balloons, and learning about insulation, to buying local food, recycling newspapers, and planting trees, the book really covers a lot of bases when it comes to easy green living for kids. Each page represents a letter, with a simple rhyme about saving the planet for little ones and awesome info in the sidebar for the older kids.

All Sleeping Bear titles are fantastic in this way. They include valuable information for both young children and older kids and cover such a huge range information in such a small book. The illustrations are fabulous and I would definitely recommend all libraries getting a copy of this one.

I am currently using alphabet books with my sixth graders. They have just chosen their own topics and are researching information for their own ABC books. What a gem this would be for my students. So glad I recently found your site! Am loving it!
