Nonfiction 10 for 10 is coming!

Today is the official start for the Nonfiction 10 for 10, blog-o-sphere sharing event countdown. It is just one month away!  This year the timing is even more perfect because there are 29 days in February so there's an extra day for reading post and gathering titles you want to explore.  Happy Leap Year!  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.  

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.  In 2013, our friend Julie suggested hosting a Nonfiction Picture Book 10 for 10 and boy were we glad she did!  We didn't mean to ignore the world of nonfiction with our picture book love.  After doing some research on the kinds of books people were sharing for #pb10for10, we noticed most posts were sharing books that didn't include nonfiction titles.   

If you are nervous about joining, please don't be.  We know the school year is busy for everyone.  Your posts can be as simple as a list of titles.  People enjoy a small nugget to peak their interest but don't feel this event requires a dissertation about each book you are sharing.  How you share is totally up to you.  I'll share my past posts to give a sense of what yours could be.

My 2013 list  - general list of favorites
My 2014 list  - was a theme list - nonfiction books for a house with three girls.    
My 2015 list - had a genre focus of biographies I love in second grade  

Here is our twitter hashtag feed - #nf10for10, to stay up to date with those joining us and reminders.
