In March, I celebrated Women's History Month with a variety of books focusing on women who impacted history in amazing ways. However, I did not get to do a new release post last month.
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.
Check out all of these fantastic new titles that came out in March 2016.
