Today is the official start for the Nonfiction 10 for 10, blog-o-sphere sharing event countdown. In just 10 days we are hoping new and old friends will join us to share their favorite nonfiction picture books. February is the month of love and most teachers I know LOVE books. After this freezing cold winter across the country, I'm thinking sharing a little book love could warm us all.
Cathy and I host the Picture book 10 for 10 in August which is always fun because we are fresh and excited for a new school year. Last year, our new friend Julie suggested hosting a Nonfiction Picture Book 10 for 10 and boy were we glad she even offered to help us spread the news, organize, and share in our joy. She asked just about mid year and it seemed like perfect timing with the winter, indoor recess, and the hope of spring on the horizon. It's a perfect time for a little pick me up.
My list of ten from last year to help give you an idea of what a general favorite list could look like. It's also fun to put a spin on your list with a theme or any unique reason you can think of to gather ten books. Here is our twitter hashtag feed - #nf10for10, to stay up to date with those joining us and reminders. Cathy has done a great job leading the way creating a jog to share participants links, here is our first Nonfiction Picture Book 10 for 10 collection from 2013.
Here are the official details to participate and it's really easy, we hope to see you there.
- What: 10 nonfiction books you can't live without!
- Hashtag: #nf10for10
- Who: Anyone interested --- educators, media specialists, librarians, parents, etc.
