"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."Dr Seuss
Non-fiction books are a brilliant way to engage readers and bring information alive. Our book list contains four non-fiction titles to explore each week across Non-Fiction November (and beyond!) with pupils ages 4 to 14. The books and book response activities are exciting and innovative which will ignite young minds.
From reference books to stories about real-life figures, a wide range of titles are included to show the breadth of non-fiction today.
The books and classroom writing activities have been organised in age order for easy reference. Links to curriculum areas have been identified, and each title comes with a brief description and overview.
Books featuring on the list include:
- Interview with a Shark written by Andy Seed
- I am Malala written by Malala Yousafzai and Patricia McCormick
- So, You Think You've Got It Bad: A Kid's Life in Ancient Rome by Chae Strathie.
