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.
Every once in awhile, I need to do a "books I missed, new releases this month and some upcoming releases" post. This is one of those posts. There is a little bit for everyone here including picture books, graphic novels, and some longer-form nonfiction. Since I have not seen every book listed, I cannot always confirm if they are truly a nonfiction book or more of an informational fiction text.
