Trapped: A Whale's Rescue
A great short book about a whale rescued from abandoned nets in the ocean. This one would make a good read aloud and there is more info after the main story for readers who are interested in more.
I LOVE this book! It is not only a great introduction to the water cycle but the language and illustrations make it a great read aloud. This is patterned text done in a way that shares a great deal of information. There is lots of extra information at the end of the book. A great nonfiction mentor.
Tricky Vic: The Impossibly True Story o the Man Who Sold the Eiffel Tower
Tricky Vic is one that has been on so many "Best of 2015" lists that I had to read it. It is a longer picture book about Robert Miler, a famous con artist whose story is fascinating.
