Nonfiction minute for a snow day – with Roxie Munro
Last year we had the pleasure of hosting writer and illustrator Roxie Munro at our Hisar Campus. One of the questions she was asked was why does she always write nonfiction books? Her answer was that she is fascinated about the world around, so much so that there are so many true stories to write about that she has never run out of ideas for books.You can read some of Roxie’s stories on the Nonfiction Minute website. The stories can be read to you or read them yourself. They really only take a minute. Roxie has written four stories
- The race for the Sky – the building of the Chrysler building in New York.
- Lemuel’s bridge – an engineer in 1850 who demonstrated how his bridge was strongest
- Animals in space – the first animals to test aircraft safety in 1783 were a sheep, a duck and a rooster
- Getting your head 3D printed.
Hope you enjoy a nonfiction minute today.
