My favorite reading challenge is Kid Lit Frenzy’s Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge. Visit Alyson’s blog to discover more wonderful nonfiction titles.
I don’t have a dedicated classroom, so technically these are books I want to buy for my office library. My lending library, I call it. It’s a small space dominated by four large bookshelves filled to overflowing with children’s, young adult, and professional development books. Given that I have no more space for books, I should probably stop buying—but we all know that’s not going to happen, right? I buy a lot of nonfiction titles because I love to share them in my classes and it hasn’t been an area of purchasing focus for my local libraries. Inspired by Carrie Gelson’s recent Picture Book Wishlist, here’s a list of 10 nonfiction picture book titles I really want–need?–to buy.
