 ENG 295 Week 5 Charlotte Huck’s Children’s Literature, Ch. 9: Nonfiction
 

Hello All,

 

As I mentioned (probably too many times now), I did not like to read as a child.  But, nonfiction was interesting to me because you didn’t need to follow a story to enjoy it.  I liked to look at pictures and then read about what I was looking at.

 

I also really like The Magic School Bus Series by Joanna Cole and Bruce Degen.  But, the authors in our textbook don’t seem to agree.   They caution against allowing children to read nonfiction with story elements. “Although the story element in books like this might help children understand facts, they could also confuse children who are still sorting out real and make believe” (270).

 

Did you read this type as a child?  What do you think about this statement from the Huck book?
