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.
Commotion in the Ocean is a lovely rhyming book to introduce young children to sea creatures.
I have often used The Little Raindrop to teach the water cycle to very young children.
When I Dream of Christmas is a lovely picture book (also available as an eBook) to introduce children to Christmas traditions.
As well as our favourite, Dig Dig Digging, Margaret Mayo has written other transport picture books for toddlers.
Any of the Amazing Machines books including Amazing Aeroplanes by Tony Mitton
