2010 Nominations: Nonfiction Picture Books

Kids love interesting nonfiction books. Kids love information books. And the sky’s the limit for kids' interests. The Nonfiction Picture Book category is looking for stunning, visual nominees that capture the curiosity and wonder of children of all ages by providing lots of great information.

From science to art, history to sports, or current events to biographies, will the book be picked up because of its fresh approach, kid appeal, fabulous illustrations, and or photography? If yes, then nominate it!

Typically, nonfiction picture books are 48 pages or less, aimed at younger readers. Longer books (more than 48 pages), denser text divided into chapters and/or a mature theme belong in the Middle Grade/Young Adult Nonfiction category.

Previous winners in this category include The Day-Glo Brothers by Chris Barton, Nic Bishop’s Frogs (2008), Lightship by Brian Floca (2007), and An Egg is Quiet by Diana Ashton (2006).
