Nonfiction Event #nf10for10

It's that time of year again!  Time for our nonfiction picture book event.  Yes, on Wednesday, February 19th, we'll round up posts of your 10 favorite nonfiction picture books.  We wanted to give you plenty of time to check your stacks, dust off your book shelves, and search your nonfiction books for your favorites.

Each year, in August, Mandy Robek and I host Picture Book 10 for 10 event (links here).  Participants share their 10 favorite picture books.  We then round them up in a jog for future reference.  The lists have grown over the years and participants have been quite clever in weaving interesting posts.  Last year, Julie Balen, suggested we add a nonfiction component to this event.  Here's the link to our 2013 nonfiction event.  

We had so much fun, we thought we should do it again!  So...

Julie, Mandy and I are hosting a nonfiction picture book event.  
  • 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.  
Start creating stacks of your favorite nonfiction and consider the 10 nonfiction books you just couldn't live without.  On February 19th ---because as Mandy said, "9 favorite nonfiction books plus your 1 very favorite is 10" --- link your post to Julie's blog.
