Tricia Stohr-Hunt has a nice blog called Open Wide, Look Inside. She highlights social studies, science and math books that are particularly accessible to children, as well as sharing connected activities.

I was particularly impressed by her listing of civics-related books, many which I use with my English Language Learners and that I learned about through a whole lot of searching.

Tricia’s blog will save you a whole lot of time if you’re interested in finding literature accessible to Beginner and Early Intermediate English Language Learners in the content areas.
