Nonfiction 10 for 10

10 Feb

nonfiction-10-for-10-1

I decided to go with books published in the last year – there are so many nonfiction titles available these days! I love how accessible nonfiction has become for kids. I also chose books that have won some type of award (CYBILS, Nerdies, etc.) and were not solely biographies (that could be an entirely different list). When I was growing up, it was often text-heavy with bad black and white photographs, now nonfiction picture books are bright and exciting to read!

  1. Pink Is For Blobfish: Discovering the World’s Perfectly Pink Animals by Jess Keating
  2. Because of an Acorn by Lola M. Schaefer
  3. Coyote Moon by Maria Gianferrari
  4. Maybe Something Beautiful by F. Isabel Campoy
  5. Around America To Win the Vote: Two Suffragists, a Kitten, and 10,000 Miles by Mara Rockliff
  6. Giant Squid by Candace Fleming
  7. The Polar Bear by Jenni Desmond
  8. The Marvelous Thing That Came From a Spring: The Accidental Invention of the Toy That Swept the Nation by Gilbert Ford
  9. Whoosh!: Lonnie Johnson’s Super-Soaking Stream of Inventions by Chris Barton
