Children’s Non-Fiction Mini-Reviews

These Non-Fiction books are geared to children ages 8 and up in my opinion, except for one. They are all well written with great illustrations. If I shared the book with my grandchildren, their comments and reactions are shared in the reviews. Definitely great additions to libraries, home, public and school. All were requested by me to read, and review. Ratings, ideas and opinions are my own.

Children’s Non-Fiction, Mini-Reviews

Today I am sharing three books from the Little People, Big Dreams series. I love this series and recommend as often as I can. I can’t praise this series enough. If you have the opportunity, check out this book, better yet, check out the series and recommend it to your local library or school library or buy them for the children in your life. I received these books from the publisher upon request. The rating, ideas and opinions shared are my own.
