3 More Awesome Non-Fiction Picture Books: The Sheepover, Tuesday Tucks Me In, and Lucky Ducklings
The Sheepover by John and Jennifer Churchman is the true story of Sweet Pea, an orphaned lamb, who came down with an infection, got better, then had a Sheepover (a sheep sleepover) with her barnyard friends to celebrate her recovery. Non-fiction picture books have to be visually engaging or they're a flop with kids. This one is extraordinary. The way the Churchman's combined photography and art is so captivating, and readers of all ages will applaud Sweet Pea's recovery.
Check out this cute video about how The Sheepover became a book.
Tuesday Tucks me in by Luis Carlos Montalvan is the true story of an Army veteran and the service dog who saved his life from a debilitating case of PTSD after being honorably discharged from service. This picture book is a kid friendly spin-off of the best selling non-fiction story, Until Tuesday.
Here's Luis Carlos Montalvan talking about his experience. The piece is promoting the book, Until Tuesday, the non-fiction book from which the picture book, Tuesday Tucks Me In was inspired.
Lucky Ducklings by Eva Moore has a special place in my heart because I have my own little flock of ducks I raised from ducklings. It's the true story of a group of ducklings who fall into a storm drain and get rescued by some caring humans while mama duck looks on.
