Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge: The Race to the End of 2018

Sometimes, as the year end nears, I feel like I am in a race with time to read as many nonfiction books that were released in the current calendar year. I am still scrambling around to track down several more titles.

Here are the titles that I most recently read….


Hubots: Real-World Robots Inspired by Humans by Helaine Becker, Illustrated by Alex Ries (Kids Can Press, September 2018)


Bloom: A Story of Fashion Designer Elsa Schiaparelli by Kyo Maclear, Illustrated by Julie Morstad (HarperCollins, February 2018)


Lovely Beasts: The Surprising Truth by Kate Gardner, Illustrated by Heidi Smith (Balzer & Bray, September 2018)


Birds From Head to Tail by Stacey Roderick, Illustrated by Kwanchai Moriya (Kids Can Press, October 2018)


Water Land: Land and Water Forms Around the World by Christy Hale (Roaring Brook Press, May 2018)


Curiosity: The Story of a Mars Rover by Markus Motum (Candlewick, March 2018)

Look for these at your local indie bookstore or community library. And hope you have found many wonderful books this year.
