A Few of My Favorite Books: Gail Gibbons

 (Affiliate links included for your convenience)

I absolutely LOVE books by Gail Gibbons! She writes and illustrates amazing non-fiction picture books for young children on a wide variety of topics. I love these books so much that I have my very own personal collection of Gibbons’ books that I rarely let my students or my son touch.


I especially enjoy her holiday books that simply explain the origin of the holiday and associated traditions. Some of her other books delve deeply into a single topic such as Bats, Recycling or Weather and provide a great deal of detailed, but child friendly information on the topic. Her books usually appeal to a wide age range from early childhood through elementary school. I have found Gibbons books to be a rich supplement to early childhood and elementary school science and social studies activities and they align easily with the non-fiction literature common core standards (bonus!).

Here are a few of my favorite Gail Gibbons books for Spring:

From Seed to Plant
Monarch Butterfly

Spiders

The Honey Makers

Frogs 

Easter


St. Patrick's Day 


What's your favorite Gail Gibbon's book?
