Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge: Recent and Upcoming Releases

While at the ALA Annual Conference, I took a number of pictures of books that were recent releases or upcoming releases. Unfortunately many of the pictures weren't clear enough to use in the post. I am always amazed at how I have missed titles in past months and glad to have an opportunity to put books on everyone's radar.  Hope you find lots of new titles to celebrate. 

Check out the previous posts: January | February | March | April
