Candace Fleming (2005), 192 pages
Audience: 7th Grade - 8th Grade
Category: Biography, Nonfiction
Add Your Comments | Add to MyBookList | Email Review
This book is written in the same style as Fleming's earlier work, Ben Franklin's Almanac, in blocks and vignettes of the subject's life. It is a very readable biography, with many little-known stories about Eleanor Roosevelt, 'first lady of the world,' as President Truman put it.

Over and Under the Snow

Kate Messner (2011), 37 pages
Illustrated by Christopher Neal
Audience: Preschool - 3rd Grade
Category: Animal, Nonfiction
Add Your Comments | Add to MyBookList | Email Review
A young girl and her father are cross country skiing in the woods. As they are skiing over the snow, the father points out all the forest animals spending their winter under the snow. The author explains that animals that burrow beneath the snow live in the subnivean zone; where the temperature remains a constant 32 degrees even if the air is colder. There is an index of more detailed information on all the forest animals our skiers see on their journey. Although this book is non-fiction it reads like a pleasant story.
