If you have seen my displays in the past here, you will know that we have 1 display space in our building for kids' books. It is kind of shoved in at the beginning of the jbio area, which is not a high traffic area. During the school year, I highlight various nonfiction areas, which coincide with whatever reports the kids are doing. Since it is summer vacation, I had to come up with something else.
Our summer display is called "I'm bored...What can I do on summer vacation?" The nice thing about this display is that you can put any kind of activity book on it, which covers a wide range of nonfiction. To create your own, check out some of these dewey numbers:
This is a great way to highlight nonfiction, especially the stuff that the kids don't normally use for homework. Think outside of the box! Parents will love it too, because I don't know about you, but we get tons of parents the week after school gets out who have NO IDEA what to do with their kids for 3 months. This gives them the tools to keep their kids busy.
