    From the blog, "Great Kid Books" by Mary Ann Scheuer: As I have thought about what it means to implement the Common Core State Standards, one of my real focuses is on how I can help children discover increasingly more complex nonfiction texts on subjects they are interested in. Five of us -- librarians and literacy experts -- are working together to show what the Common Core means for school libraries in real life. We’re calling the series Common Core IRL: In Real Libraries.

    Nonfiction reading is so important for kids -- and not just because Common Core says it is. Here's the best list of nonfiction books that will get kids reading!
