The trick to making non-fiction interesting to younger readers is to create a believable story while weaving in facts along the way. Project Panda does just that.

Project Panda – Adventures of Riley by Amanda Lumry and Laura Hurwitz – Good quick story about visiting and learning about China, pandas, and even mixed in a little adventure to rescue a lost panda. Interesting book with a favorite style, images and facts placed on top of beautiful photographs.
A great nonfiction book for elementary school collections. Best for grades 1 - 3. Will appeal to those who are fans of Magic Tree House and Magic School Bus series.
