Memoirs: Did Ye Hear Mammy Died?, Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will to Survive #BookReview #Audiboook #Memoir

I am trying to read more non-fiction this year, so both of these books not only fit the bill, but also sounded extremely interesting. Did Ye Hear Mammy Died? is all about being raised in a family of 11 children, after the death of their mother. Maid is the story of a single mother and trying to make a living for her and her young daughter. Both were very interesting and engaging.

Saturday Morning for Kids – #NonFiction Biographies for Children: Little People, Big Dreams – Marilyn Monroe, Amanda Gorman, Florence Nightingale, Gloria Steinem #BookReview

This week, I am once again highlighting several books from the Little People, Big Dreams series. The exceptional Little People, BIG DREAMS series prides itself on providing child-friendly biographies of well-known public figures and celebrities. All of these books share the childhoods of the person being highlighted, as well as the dreams they had as children. If I were still a teacher librarian, I would have this series in my library.

Saturday Morning or Sunday Afternoon For Kids: Black History Month #BookReviews #Non-Fiction #ReadNonFicChal @bookdout

I was scrolling through Hoopla looking for a movie to watch for Black History Month and came upon several readings of books geared to children on important events in Black History, most that I was not aware of. These animated readings of these stories were all done by Dreamscape LLC and I definitely recommend them if they are available to you. If not, you can also read the books. These are just four of these stories/videos, but there are several others to choose from. These are #4 to #7 for The Non-Fiction Reading Challenge fitting into the Social History Category.

Saturday Morning For Kids: Non-Fiction Picture Books #BookReview #PictureBooks

This meme was started by Rae Longest at Powerful Women Readers. As I am a grandmother, who loves to read to her grandchildren, a mother who loved to read to and with her children, and a retired teacher librarian, this meme really attracted me.

This week, I am highlighting four nonfiction picture books, two from the Profession Series for children and two from the Little People, Big Dreams series. Both series are geared to primary students and they are well done. I recommend both of these series to parents, teachers, schools and public libraries. Each of these books was provided to me by the publisher upon request. The rating and opinions shared are my own.
