A Picture Is Worth…: Teen Nonfiction in Photographs


Have you got a few minutes? Good, because once you open these books, you’re going to want to keep flipping through.


This brilliantly simple concept comes from a website of the same name:

See two kittens.

Pick the cuter one.

A Time Before Crack

Street photographer Jamel Shabazz takes us back to New York in the late 70s and early 80s when fashion, music, and hip hop culture were drastically different.

This book adds to Back in the Days, his earlier collection of 70s and 80s New York photography.



Odd Jobs

What do you want to be when you grow up? An armpit sniffer? A port-a-potty cleaner? How about the museum janitor who dusts off the dinosaur bones? 

This book and its sequel Odder Jobs will introduce all kinds of livelihoods you’d never have imagined.

I really love 'Odd Jobs' and the sequel. Great choices!
