Pink Is for Blobfish: Discovering the World's Perfectly Pink Animals

Jess Keating (2016), 48 pages
Illustrated by David Degrand
Audience: K - 3rd Grade
Category: Animal, Nonfiction
Add Your Comments | Add to MyBookList | Email Review
The Blobfish is not an attractive animal. Neither is the Pygmy Seahorse. Or the Naked Mole Rat. Looks aside, there is one thing that binds all these creatures together- they are all pink. These seventeen animals are shown in all their rosy-hued glory, from Pink Slug to Pink Fairy Armadillos. The pages are all displayed the same way. On the left, there is a color photograph of the animal. On the right, text is broken up into three parts: At the top is its name plus general information about it. In a yellow speech bubble below, a cartoon of the animal gives interesting trivia facts about it, and a column on the right lists the species name, size, diet, habitat, and predators and threats. This book is a perfect introduction to more unusual animals.

Pocahontas

Lucia Raatma (2001), 32 pages
Audience: K - 3rd Grade
Category: Biography, Easy Reader, Historical, Nonfiction
Add Your Comments | Add to MyBookList | Email Review
Pocahontas, meaning 'playful little girl' played an important role in American History. Although she had a very short life, living only to the age of 22, she accomplished great things. She was responsible for helping the 1st settlers of Jamestown survive their first year, she might have saved John Smith's life, and she helped keep peace between the Native Americans and the English settlers. Pocahontas by Lucia Raatma, is an easy to read, yet remarkably complete biography of the highlights of Pocahontas' life. This is a perfect non-fiction book for the young reader.

Category: Nonfiction, Poetry

This is a great book for young writers and the teachers of young writers to use. The A to Z organization is fun, but not rigid. For example, some of the letters of the alphabet include an instruction on a type of poem: O contains an Opposites instruction and S contains a Shape Poem instruction.

Everyone has heard of the Pony Express, but did you know it only existed for eighteen months? Eighty men, no younger than 11 and no older than eighteen, were hired and between 400 and 500 horses were bought. While the company existed, the riders carried 34,753 pieces of mail and rode 650,000 miles. Legendary characters like Buffalo Bill and Wild Bill Hickok endured the hazards of weather, treacherous land and bandits. Read this book and learn why the company started and what led to its eventual downfall.
