The Nonfiction Minute

Launching September 8 - a teachable moment for memorable learning

Welcome to iNK THINK TANK!

We are an orga­ni­za­tion of award-winning children’s non­fic­tion authors who write with pas­sion about the real world. “iNK” stands for “inter­est­ing non­fic­tion for kids.”  We know con­tent and we “speak child.”



The Com­mon Core State Stan­dards are shift­ing the focus of teach­ing to the use of com­plex non­fic­tion in the the class­room.  There is no bet­ter way to imple­ment the CCSS in your class­room than by study­ing non­fic­tion lit­er­a­ture from iNK’s team of award-winning authors.  Our books are also aligned to the National Cur­ricu­lum Stan­dards so you can eas­ily find ter­rific grade-appropriate read­ing on the sub­jects you have to teach.  Reg­is­ter for our FREE data­base to find the books.


iNK can help you take non­fic­tion ever fur­ther.  Imag­ine how inspired your stu­dents would be if they could inter­act with the peo­ple who write these books and learn from them what it is like to research and write in the real world.  Now you can! Take a look at our stel­lar list of our incred­i­ble authors on the iNK Thinkers page.  Meet iNK’s Authors on Call and their ground-breaking pro­gram Class ACTS, a cre­ative and inno­v­a­tive approach that will help get your stu­dents excited about read­ing and writ­ing about  the real world. Our authors are excited about con­tent and their pas­sion is contagious.
