INTRODUCTION

Reading nonfiction books is a great way for children to expand their knowledge,build vocabulary, and satisfy their natural curiosity about the world around them. But most informational books are far too complex for  beginning readers.That’s why I’ve written these nonfiction mini-books that even the youngest readers can read themselves. In 25 Easy Nonfiction Mini-Books, children can gain confidence practicing their  reading skills as they learn about essential topics in three content areas: science, social studies, and math. These reproducible, easy-to-read books have all the features that support emergent readers: simple text,  rhyme, repetition,and illustrations that closely match the text. The topics have been correlated to the standards (see page 5), so you can easily integrate content into your reading instruction—a teaching approach  that is both fun and practical!
Here are some ways you can use these mini-books in your classroom:
= to provide content reading on a theme your class is studying
= to introduce a topic or thematic unit
= to encourage children to read independently in school and at home
= to inspire children’s own writing
= to launch a research project
= to encourage children to select books about topics that are of interest to them
= to allow children to create their own mini-book libraries
To reinforce the science, social studies, and math concepts in each mini-book, on pages 6–14 I have included ideas for classroom activities to launch or follow up the readings. These include discussion suggestions,  hands-on projects, and writing ideas to engage children and enrich their learning. In addition, each of these pages includes a list of related trade books for read-aloud and independent reading.
I hope that the children in your class will enjoy these nonfiction mini-books especially written for them. I also hope that as children learn to read, these books will awaken them to the experience of reading to learn. 
Happy reading! And happy learning!
