Common Core and Steve Jenkins- A+ Nonfiction Author!

Steve Jenkins has written and illustrated an impressive collection of picture books for young readers; he is a phenomenal children's author and my 2nd Graders fell in love with his books (so did I).  In fact, some of them even ordered his books when they saw them in Scholastic or asked their parents to go on to Amazon to buy his books!  What Do You Do with a Tail Like This? Jenkins' books are captivating, inventive, gorgeous, playful, engaging, and most of all informative.  Jenkins' books definitely can be used to meet the Reading Standards for Informational Text for Grade 2. 

Here are a few of our TOP PICKS:

 Do you have favorite nonfiction and informative texts that you will be using to meet the Information Text Reading Standards?  If so, please share them.  Or, let me know if you purchase a book of his and how you felt about it!
