Nonfiction Picture Book Wednesday 12.30.15 upcoming 2016 nfpb


I am excited to join Alyson Beecher and other friends in this weekly challenge.  Finding great nonfiction picture books isn't a challenge anymore, there are so many wonderful books to be read now!  The challenge is sharing them with as many people as possible so they can find this wealth of literature to share with our young readers.  Thanks to Aly for starting this weekly link-up and thanks to all who join in!  See all of the posts at kidlitfrenzy.

I really can't believe this is the last Wednesday post for 2015.  What a great year for nonfiction!  I shared my favorites from 2015 in this post.  Today I will share what nonfiction picture books I'm looking forward to reading in 2016!

It's that time of year when we look back and celebrate what we've read, and also look forward to what is coming ahead.  Readers are always making reading plans and I'm happy to say my 2016 reading year looks bright thanks to some of these books.  Which one of these books will be on your reading list this year?

Looking for some great fiction picture books in 2016?  Here's my post about upcoming upcoming 2016 picture books.

What books are you looking forward to in 2016?

* reminder, publishing dates can change.  Be sure to check closer to the release date for accuracy *


  1. So many books and so little time. Looks like another great year ahead.

  2. That blobfish is definitely in the so-ugly-it's-cute category, I think the cover image alone will get that title off the shelves and into kids' hands. :)

  3. Lots of interesting looking books ahead.I'm excited for next year!

  4. Thank you so much for including our EVERY DAY BIRDS on your wonderful list. It is an honor to be here...and I am excited too! Happy 2016!

  5. Oh so excited. Off to meet a friend for coffee and then I will be back to study this list more carefully!

  6. Between you and Aly, my TBR pile is toppling!! Great list!

  7. I have already read a few advanced copies of books from this list and can say that we are going to have a great year of nonfiction reading ahead of us. Thanks Michelle for including so many that I didn't mention.
