Nonfiction Picture Book Wednesday - #nf10for10 event

Thank you everyone for signing up for the Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge 2014.  It is going to be an amazing year of sharing nonfiction books with one another.

Today, I am joining with Cathy Mere, Mandy Robek, and Julie Balen for #nf10for10 event. 

Here are the rules:
  • What:  10 nonfiction books you can't live without
  • Hashtag:  #nf10for10
  • Who:  Anyone interested --- educators, media specialists, librarians, parents, etc.
  • When:  Wednesday, February 19th 
  • Where:  All posts will need to be linked at Write at the Edge.  Then I will move them into a jog resource during the week of the event.  

For my post, I decided to pick 10 of my favorite nonfiction picture book writers or illustrators and list my favorite nonfiction picture book that he or she has written.  The books listed below are listed in no particular order.   And there are so many wonderful authors and illustrators that were left off this list because I only had 10 slots. Here are my #nf10for10 for 2014...
