    Denese Anderson

    This book is full of engaging activities for students as well as tons of nonfiction book suggestions to use as read alouds or with instruction. When students learn how to identify the different types of nonfiction, as presented in this book, they will be better equipped to find books they are interested in reading as well as books to use for research. This book is very well organized and perfect for classroom teachers and librarians.
