1. Have you read any of Steve Jenkins books about animals? (I can’t remember if you or Carrie have blogged them and that’s where I heard about them). He does a lot with what is the biggest, fastest, longest comparisons of animals and they are very cool. The illustrations aren’t as detailed (reminds me more of Eric Carle), but still very good.

    And, my post for today:http://herdofsteph.blogspot.com/2011/02/read-aloud-thursday-groundhogs-george.html. I actually got one written! : )

  2. I don’t know Nic Bishop but I have a reptile and non-fiction book loving boy so I’m going to have to check these out!
    I do love Jim Arnosky. I also love Gail Gibbons for non-fiction books. She can make just about anything interesting and accessible. Seymour Simon is another favorite for science picture books (and a fun science mystery series for older kids).

    I wrote about books that inspire creativity this week. http://supratentorial.wordpress.com/2011/02/03/read-aloud-thursday-books-to-inspire-creativity/
