Cool to be Clever: Edson Hendricks for iPad - Digital Storytime's Review

Cool to be Clever: Edson Hendricks for iPad - Digital Storytime's Review | Readers Advisory For Secondary Schools | Scoop.it
Overall, this is a phenomenal title that presents non-fiction content in a more modern way, letting kids explore and learn at their own pace, with or without narration. This title would be great for lessons on bullying, the Internet, biography and more. Struggling, older readers will also benefit from having a title tailored to their interests with the option to listen rather than read (although text does not highlight). This is truly a must-download title. My highest recommendation!

 

An excellent free book app with appeal to readers from 8 to adult. Well reviewed by Carisa Kluver. Find more digital story reviews on this page.

Guys Lit Wire: The Reader's Advisory Guide to Nonfiction

Guys Lit Wire: The Reader's Advisory Guide to Nonfiction | Readers Advisory For Secondary Schools | Scoop.it

"Neal Wyatt's book has chapters recommending books about sports, travel, true crime, true adventure, memoirs, history and biographies, 'general nonfiction', whatever that is, and so on. Science, mathematics, and nature writing are all dealt with in one chapter, as are food and cooking.

It was published in 2007, so you will not find the most recently published nonfiction in it. That is not a problem, in my opinion..."

Good review of this book, which goes on to demonstrate how the reviewer developed methods for updating.
