How to Choose Information Books
How to choose information books for your third grader
When choosing informational text, consider the following:
- Accuracy and currency - Look at the copyright date. Information about dogs may be timeless, but information about the planet Mars may change with new space exploration.
- Accessibility - How much reading support will your child need? Are the concepts and/or vocabulary too difficult?
- Appeal - Are the photos or illustrations of high interest to your child? Are there enough graphics?
