Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge: January New Releases

As part of the Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge, one of the most popular posts are the round-up posts. Honestly, it is also my favorite post to put together.  This may not be a comprehensive list of releases for the month but I hope that it will help us kick of our year of nonfiction reading. 

Here are some of the 2018 new releases that I am looking forward to reading. What are you looking forward to?
