NONFICTION MONDAY: National Geographic Readers

I've long enjoyed National Geographic's books, especially the beautiful photography.  The leveled readers are especially well done.  Today I'm highlighting several Level 3 readers. Level 3 readers are for fluent readers.  These are books that I plan to use with my students to highlight nonfiction text features.  Not only do they have beautiful photographs but the information is interesting and well-presented.  These books work for both learning and pleasure reading.
National Geographic also has a Super Reader Program that encourages students to read, play games, take quizzes, and earn prizes.

Water is all around us; we drink it every day. In this level 3 reader, kids will learn about the water cycle, discovering how rain and snow flow into our lakes, rivers, and oceans, and later evaporate into the sky again. Vivid photography and accessible text make this book an ideal introduction to the science of water.
