Jennifer, our kick-booty Children’s Librarian, had a great request for some of our monthly themes: throw more non-fiction into the mix. And we have! And it’s been more fun than I thought it’d be! And yes! I am exclaiming a lot! But that’s mainly because of our first super-focused on non-fic theme:&nbsp;<img class=”aligncenter size-large wp-image-5562″ src=”″ alt=”Celebrating &quot;KNOWvember&quot; in November can be a lot of factual fun! |” width=”700″ height=”478″>

As a child, I totally recall thinking about how both&nbsp;<em>no&nbsp;</em>and&nbsp;<em>know&nbsp;</em>sounded exactly alike. <em>Hooray for homonyms!</em> It was probably the first time I enjoyed linguistics and stuff like that there. So seeing this theme made my inner child pretty happy for the entire month.

Natasia did a beautiful job on decorating our front windows:

Each section of the window had its own theme: history, science, math, and the arts.

She also turned our whiteboard in the activity area into a jumble of facts:

Natasia also made a cool non-fiction book display with the word&nbsp;<em>KNOW&nbsp;</em>spelled out as a sign. Sorry that I failed to take a photo of that. I also failed to get a photo of Ashlynn’s nerdy scavenger hunt. I really need to make a monthly list of photos that I need to take before we switch out themes. You’ll have to trust me that those things were pretty cool.

But I hope I was able to share enough to inspire you to create your own non-fiction and factual displays!
