A closer look at a new book

Nonfiction in Motion: Connecting Preschoolers with Nonfiction Books Through Movement.

New Items in the State Library, September-October 2016 "An underutilized source for storytime programs, quality nonfiction books can help bridge the reading gap between preschool boys and girls; boys enjoy facts and “true stuff,” and including these books in storytime helps boys see that reading can be fun. Here, Dietzel-Glair spotlights a multitude of nonfiction titles published since 2005 that will engage young children's curiosity while activating learning through movement-based activities. A huge time-saver for storytime planners and presenters, and a useful collection development tool, this guide identifies 200 quality nonfiction books suitable for preschoolers, all in print or easy to find, covering fun topics like animals, construction, and science; includes recommended art, movement, music, and prop ideas for each book that will fire up children's imaginations; shows how to incorporate the five practices for early literacy and offers other helpful storytime tips; provides several outlines for art projects; and features multiple indexes to aid in finding just the right title, author, or subject. Using this book as a springboard for programming will ensure that storytime is a delightful, educational experience for children and adults alike"-- Publisher's website.
