Recommended Book List and More



This summer on the I.N.K. blog, we’ll be reposting some of our favorites during the month of July and we’ll take a quiet non-blogging month of relaxation in August.

During this time, we will consider and begin the steps of making some improvements to the blog. One of the things I’d like to work on is building a formidable recommended list of I.N.K. books from preschool through YA. We’d also like to turn our attention to how we as readers, writers, teachers and lovers of children’s nonfiction can suggest the best books to implement the core curriculum.

We welcome your suggestions. What would you like to see on the blog? How can we talk about non fiction in a way that makes these books more accessible to the general public?

Please join the conversation. You can comment here, join our Facebook page  and comment, or even send me a private email if you prefer (see sidebar for email).

Although our posting will be quieter over the next two months, the conversation will definitely continue.

Looking forward to the development of both aspects: your combined recommendations for various purposes and ages as well as the possibility for readers to suggest great titles, old and new.

I think that the Common Core State Standards is an opening for us authors to unpack our processes. How do we learn? How do we tackle new material? How do we make choices in our writing? What principles guide us in creating powerful nonfiction? These are the issues we need to address for the teachers who read this blog.
