Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge: What are you reading? - 2/13/19

About once a month, I do a “What are you reading?” post. Here are some of the picture books that I read recently. I am still working through a stack of books and will share those titles soon. Since some of these books won’t be released until March or even later, I have included the release date next to each book.
