If you have not discovered the Time For Kids Biography series of books, take the time to check them out! There are over a dozen titles easily found on Amazon or the book store. As research shows that students need to be reading 50 percent non-fiction text, these books offer valuable information in a highly engaging layout including many text features. Additionally, for those schools that participate in the Accelerated Reader program, the book has a corresponding quiz. I often use these books on the document camera to highlight important tidbits that we are focusing on.
