Interesting Non Fiction for Kids Recommendation

The Great American Dust Bowl by Don Brown

Don Brown expands into the graphic novel form with great success. There is a plethora of historic and environmental information here. The drawings really add to the reader’s experience of what it was like to be in living with so much dirt and dust.

For a fiction pairing, the graphic novel The Storm in the Barn by Matt Phelan is part ghost story part historical fiction.

Grade 5 and Up

Used successfully with reluctant reader

Boy appeal
