summer read to learn

All summer I’ll be sharing books for kids of all ages on topics that will interest them or offer them a new interest to learn about. Most of the time these will be nonfiction books, but sometimes we can learn from fictional stories too. I frequently learn from books sent during a historical period because usually the fictional story is based on real events.

So, I hope you will stay tuned to these posts. They will always have Summer Read-to-Learn in the title and in the tags. There will be books from some of my favorite publishers like National Geographic, Phaidon, Chronicle Kids, Prestel, and many others.

Non-Fiction Board Book

Who knew there were so many different kinds of dumplings? In this board book, introduce your toddler to food from various cultures all around the world. Even though this book doesn’t contain recipes, you can easily find out how to make dumplings. Create an activity with your toddler by going online and finding the recipe to make some of the dumplings included in the book.

Little Dumplings board book page

Each page includes dumplings with a name label. The rhyming verse makes the reading lyrical for young readers. Plus, the dumplings look fun to eat on the pages.

The end of the book includes the names of the dumplings, their pronunciation, and what region the dumpling is most likely from. Because so many people have enjoyed dumplings, it’s hard to know exactly where a specific type of dumpling is from. Many of the dumplings are new to me and I look forward to trying more dumplings soon!
