Creatures with Stories to Tell

Do you like books about animals and the people who study and help them? When you are looking for some fun and challenging reads, don't forget to give our nonfiction section a try. You'll find a wonderful new world of children's nonfiction books. They are anything but boring. These books get information across in a format that uses narrative elements like characterization and dramatic tension. In reading stories instead of reciting facts or lists, kids develop critical thinking and problem solving skills. Like the best fiction books, they're thought provoking, suspenseful, sometimes sad and usually inspiring.  Some of the finest examples can be found in the animal science section.  Best of all, they're true!
