BOOKS – Nonfiction

The world is full of exciting things to watch, do, play with, learn about, think about, research, explore, capture, ENJOY!

As a writer and teacher, Alan Trussell-Cullen is a great collector and hoarder of wonderful and wacky facts, so it is no wonder he has written so many nonfiction or informational texts.

There’s excellent science and social studies material in the Factivity Series for young readers (Grades 1-3).

There’s exciting reading for older readers (Grade 3-5) in the Forward Focus (USA)/Fast Forward (Australia, New Zealand) Series. (Yes, you can teach literacy skills at the same time as you teach science and social studies content!)
