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. 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 or a bit of historical fiction.
Yesterday as part of my normal Wednesday nonfiction picture book posts, I did a new release post. There were so many books I decided to divide it into two posts.
Check out all of these fantastic titles that are coming out this month.
