Book Review: Nonfiction in Motion: Connecting Preschoolers with Nonfiction Books through Movement

Jenny Foster Stenis

Abstract


Nonfiction in Motion: Connecting Preschoolers with Nonfiction Books through Movement by Julie Dietzel-Glair is the author’s companion volume to Books in Motion: Connecting Preschoolers with Books through Art, Games, Movement, Music, Playacting, and Props (ALA 2013). Dietzel-Glair has given librarians everywhere a unique and important storytime resource. With the increase of the use of nonfiction or information reading in the Common Core and other curriculum standards, it is important that librarians develop storytime customers’ love for this type of material as well as for literature. Michael Sullivan has been reminding us for more than a decade that boys approach reading differently from girls, and this includes reading for information. Now it is time for us to use this knowledge to serve all the children in our storytimes. Nonfiction in Motion is the tool to get you started.
