You're never too young for nonfiction! Nonfiction Picture Books are the perfect way to introduce kids to the amazing world around them, from history and biography to art and nature. Science? Math? Animals? Sports? It's all here and more besides! We're looking for titles that make great read-alouds or are suitable for beginning and intermediate readers, illustrations and photographs that will wow kids and adults alike, and topics so fascinating that kids will want to go digging for more, more, more nonfiction!
Nonfiction Picture Books includes titles with factual content and informational titles, or books intended to teach. For example, the Magic School Bus series or biographies with fictional dialogue would be included. Titles are generally 48 pages or less with text aimed at younger readers and listeners.
