It's Today: Nonfiction Picture Book 10 for 10 #nf10for10

Goodness, how did it get here so fast?  Today's the day for our nonfiction picture book celebration.  This is an important event for me as it is a reminder to keep nonfiction texts in the front of mind.  It reminds me of the importance of weaving these texts alongside the other picture books we read.  It's certainly a great time to talk about nonfiction picture books as authors and publishers continue to grow in the work they do in this genre.

  1. Yes, hybrid, but I've used nf poetry with students who want diverse ways to share their research. World Make Way & When The Sun Shines on Antarctica are terrific! I still need to read Lovely Beasts, first on my list, Cathy! Thanks!

  2. Lucky me, I know about half of these and then the other half I need to explore. I love the word hybrid text and why mix things together. Mapping Sam truly has my interest peaked. I wonder if it's like Mapping Penny. Thanks for co-hosting with me!
