It's important for us to talk about these everyday heroes and how they face life's problems."

This list came from a crowd-source appeal via Twitter and an email to colleagues and friends.

Why Read Informational Books? | National Association for the Education of Young Children | NAEYC | Digital Learning, Technology, Education | Scoop.it

Reading alound "informational" non-fiction books supports vocabulary, expands horozons, helps students acquire content knowledge, exposes students to dense and abstract language, and helps students better understand narratives...even young children.
