It's Coming: February's Nonfiction Picture Book Event

Our February Nonfiction Event
How did the calendar get to 2018 so quickly?!?  Well, here we are...and January is moving so quickly.

February is waiting right around the corner and, of course, there's a lot to LOVE about February.   It's time to get ready for one of my favorite events: February's Nonfiction Picture Book 10 for 10 event (#nf10for10).  This year will be our 6th annual nonfiction event (August is the sister event #pb10for10).  Nonfiction Picture Book 10 for 10 allows the opportunity to bring our community together to share our favorite nonfiction picture books.  I'm always trying to grow in my knowledge of nonfiction, and this event always reenergizes this quest.

What is #nf10for10
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.  On the day of the event, we'll ask that you visit the Google Community site to add your nonfiction link to the 2017 #nf10for10 tab.

Join us!

Start sorting through your collections to find your favorite titles and join us in one month as we each share 10 nonfiction picture books we just can't live without.  Feel free to grab the #nf10for10 button and spread the word.  


  1. Hurrah, Cathy and Mandy! So many wonderful nf picture books have been published in the past couple of years, it will be hard to choose! Looking forward to this!

  2. We are in and we can't wait!! Thanks for hosting.
