Nonfiction Picture Book Wednesday: May New Releases

As part of the Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge, one of my favorite things is to round-up as many new quality nonfiction books for children and share them with readers of this blog.  Some months, I miss the release of books and add them to the next month's post.

However, this month, I am a bit challenged. I know that new nonfiction is released each month but my normal search produced little. So, I tapped into some of the longer form nonfiction that has or will be coming out shortly.  Though this is a little different from the usual post, I am hoping that you find a new read.  ~ Happy Reading!
