As soon as the announcement for this year's celebration of nonfiction hit Twitter people began speculating whether they would select their top books they could not live without or pick a theme. It's much easier for me to pick a theme, then select those books I would recommend. In reviewing nonfiction picture books last year, there were three outstanding titles focusing on those prehistoric giants, dinosaurs. I have had a great time discovering new titles and making sure I included those books whose appeal is lasting.
My top ten dinosaur books are listed in a Popplet titled Dinosaurs and Other Prehistorics. (Click the title to access the Popplet.) The image below shows how the Popplet will look. Follow this link to the blog hosting all the other participants. Make sure you stop by Kid Lit Frenzy hosted by educator, Alyson Beecher. Many of us link there weekly on Wednesdays for the 2014 Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge.
