National Non-Fiction November Picks: Part 1


November is National Non-Fiction month and this year the theme is The World Around Us

To celebrate all of the brilliant factual books out there, we’ve put together our favourite non-fiction reads that inspire us to think about our world.

Take a look at some of our NNFN picks:

Dear Green Peace by Simon James

Worried that the whale living in her pond is unhappy, Emily writes to Greenpeace, who, though offering the best of advice, insist that it is impossible for a whale to live in a pond.
Can she set him free?

The Street Beneath My Feet by Charlotte Gullian

This double-sided foldout book takes you on a fascinating journey deep underground.
One side of the foldout shows the ground beneath the city, and the reverse shows the ground beneath the countryside.

How The World Works by Christiane Dorion

How did life begin?
Is the earth moving beneath our feet?
Why does it rain?

This fun interactive book will reveal the answers to all of these questions and many more!

The Big Book of Bugs by Yuval Zommer

This brilliant book is divided into key groups of bugs, from beetles to butterflies, snails to grasshoppers, worms to spiders, and all sorts of creepy crawlies in between.
