Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge: New and Recent Releases

I realized I had not done an official new release post in awhile. 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 did find so many fabulous books that have come out this year that I missed in the past months, or books that will be coming out in May. Hope you find lots of new titles to celebrate. 

Check out the previous posts: January | February | March
