Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge: What's in my stack this week? - November 6, 2019

Recently, I have been dealing with a number of work deadlines and haven’t had enough time this week to pull together all the November and December upcoming releases as I do in a normal new release post. So, this is a cross between “What am I reading?” and a “New Release Post”. These titles are currently sitting on the side table by my living room sofa and I am flipping through them. I marvel that there is so much amazing nonfiction with topics for everyone. With the exception of two of the books, these are longer form nonfiction.

Beetle Battles: One Scientist’s Journey of Adventure and Discovery by Doug Emlen (Roaring Brook Press, December 24, 2019
