All summer long we’ve learned about the nonfiction science books that Dewey’s been reading. But Dewey loves to read all kinds of different books! You can find picture books, easy reader books, chapter books, and nonfiction books at the library.
So, what’s Dewey reading today…?
Dewey’s reading Beauty and the Beast retold by Ursula Jones! This book’s call number is J 398.26 Jones. Librarians read the call number as J three ninety-eight point two six. (Not three hundred ninety-eight point twenty-six.) The call number 398.2 is used for fairy tales. This book’s call number is a little more specific: 398.26 is used for “tales and lore involving physical and natural phenomena”. Boy, is that a mouthful! When you find this book on the shelf, you will find lots of other great fairy tales nearby!
