Educational (And Fun!) Nonfiction Books

From encyclopedias to biographies, nonfiction additions to your home library make for great learning–and fun–at all ages. In Episode 29 we share some of the reasons we love a well-curated nonfiction collection, recommendations for capturing kids’ natural interest through nonfiction books, tips for reluctant readers, and more. Plus, as always, we share what we’re reading and what YOU’re reading. Join us!

What you’re reading:

Helen emailed to share that her 11-year-old just finished the Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkein. She recently read Charlotte’s Web aloud to her six-year-old, followed by The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo. Helen herself recently loved Homegoing (which Sarah misread as Homecoming – oops!) by Yaa Gyasi.
