5 kinds of nonfiction, enriching reading and writing instruction with children's books, Melissa Stewart and Marlene Correia

Summary
"This book introduces a new way to sort, study and recognize nonfiction through the authors' categorization system of its five types - active, browsable, traditional, expository literature and narrative. After introducing the concept, the authors discuss ways this system can improve instruction, help students, teachers and librarians understand nonfiction better, and ultimately create stronger readers and writers"--, Provided by publisher
