I'm back with my second response to MotherReader and her call for readers to nominate Best Books of the Year to date list. Here are the nonfiction titles from 2007 that I most admire. Hey, don't go! Really--nonfiction can be fabulous! Just take a look at these beauties.
- 1607: A New Look at Jamestown by Karen Lange - This is one of the best social studies/history books I've read all year. You can read my review here.
- One Well: The Story of Water on Earth by Rochelle Strauss - I loved this book. Want to know more? You can read my review here.
- A Seed is Sleepy by Diana Hutts Aston - Seeds are amazing things, and this book beautifully captures their brilliance in both text and images.
- Where in the Wild? Camouflaged Creatures Concealed . . . and Revealed by David Schwartz - Amazing photographs of animals hidden in plain sight, clues to their location in the form of poetry, and background info galore hidden in the gatefold all come together in this handsome and highly effective book about camouflage.
