National Non Fiction Day – favourite picture books

The Federation of Children’s Book Groups celebrates National Non Fiction Day on the first Thursday in November. We’ve chosen some of our favourite non fiction picture books that the littlest people can enjoy.

We learnt lots about ducks from Just Ducks! by Nicola Davies’ beautifully illustrated picture book. It’s part of a series of non fiction picture books from Walker books.
