A New Home
We're moving!  Yes, for years we have hosted our picture book events using Jog the Web to collect posts to make a resource.  It seems Jog the Web is gone so we're moving to a new home.  You can find our event hosted in our new Google Community page.

Our February Nonfiction Event
It's that time of year!  Time to dig through your nonfiction picture book collections to find the 10 titles you just can't live without.  This is our 3rd annual nonfiction event.  I know I'm excited to see the selections and posts about favorite nonfiction titles.  The event will be Thursday, February 19th (because 1 + 9 is 10...yes, I know the one is in the tens place, but let's play along with it).

In 2010 Mandy Robek and I hosted our first picture book event.  In 2013, Julie Balen suggested we add a nonfiction picture book event that worked the same.  Participants choose 10 - well, usually 10 (they're a crafty bunch) - nonfiction picture books to share.  In the past we have rounded up the posts into a magazine-like jog at Jog the Web.  This year, on the day of the event, we'll ask that you visit the Google Community site to add your nonfiction link to the 2015 #nf10for10 tab.  We will also suggest that you leave the link on one of our blogs in the comment section, just in case we have to move again.

  • What:  10 nonfiction picture books you can't live without.
  • Hashtag:  #nf10for10
  • Who:  Anyone interested --- educators, media specialists, librarians, parents, and book lovers.  
  • When:  Thursday, February 19th
  • Where:  All posts will be linked on the 2015 #nf10for10 page of our Picture Book 10 for 10 Google Community Site.  
Start sorting through your collections to find your favorite titles and join us in one month as we share 10 nonfiction picture books we just can't live without.  Feel free to grab the #nf10for10 button and spread the word.  

In the meantime, please feel free to browse our new home.  Send a request to join our community.  If you have participated in the past, we'd love it if you would add your old posts to the correct tab in the community.  We are hoping to recreate the resources the best we can.  


  1. AWE - S-O-M-E - I wish you could here my cheerleading days returning! You kept a secret yesterday and created a great visual for our new home for this event! You are always full of surprises. I think you will enjoy my post which is going lie at 4:51pm, you know why? 1. It's also #mathmonday today on my blog and that goes live first. 2. When 4:51 is added together it makes the number 10!!!!!! Looking forward to another great #nf10for10 with you.

  2. I left a comment earlier-and for some reason, it didn't show up!
    Thanks for creating a new home via Google! It's user friendly! Love the logo design as well!

  3. I LOVE this idea because I have been trying to get my city's school librarians to do this & it never has happened so I'm really looking forward to your suggestions!
