2016 #nf10for10 - it's all about the series
2015 #nf10for10 - nf can be interesting!
2014 #nf10for10 - themes in nonfiction
This year I am collecting my recent top 10 science books. I find myself drawn to picture book biographies and I'm trying to make sure I vary my nonfiction reading. Interestingly enough as I made this list, I realize my favorite science books often concentrate on animals. As I try and find books that fit our school's NGSS units, I'll keep trying to find a variety of science books to use with young readers.

Are there some science books on here you haven't read yet? By including books like these in your classroom library, you'll show students the importance of nonfiction reading and help encourage a love of scientific learning!
