What’s Hot: Big Head Books
Big Head Books- At least that’s what the kids call them. I’m talking about the “Who Was” series of Biographies published by Penguin.
This really is a terrific learning tool for kids of all ages. I find kids as young as second grade able to read them with ease, and kids as old as sixth grade still getting a lot of valuable information from them.
What makes them so good?
- They have an engaging tone.
- They have clear but simple illustrations.
- They have short side-bars for added information.
- They are no longer than they have to be.
Penguin is now publishing “What Was,” and “Where Is,” books.
So what about you? Whose biography would you like to see? What event would you like to know more about? What place would you like to explore?
Mine are: Pocahontas, The Battle of the Bulge, and Big Ben.
