National Non-Fiction November

National Non-Fiction November

Fact fans assemble: National Non-Fiction November has arrived!

This month we took a special trip to visit the team at non-fiction book publisher DK.
Book designer Fiona and editor Sam told us about all the work that goes on behind the scenes to create some of your favourite books.

Check out the video over on Reading Club to hear all about the making of the book Children Just Like Me.

You’ll also find our chat with writer and illustrator Yuval Zommer. Yuval told us all about The Big Book of Bugs – it’s practically crawling with facts about all kinds of insects!

Do you have any recommendations for fun non-fiction books?

Share your top picks with everyone in Chat and take at look at some of our favourites on the blog!
