Nonfiction Monday

I am pleased to be hosting Nonfiction Monday on August 20. Leave a link to your post in the comments and I will add them to the Nonfiction Monday round-up throughout the day.

For all you nonfiction fans, now is the time to apply to be a Cybils judge! The nonfiction panels are great places to be, especially the nonfiction picture book panel (hint hint). The process to apply is simple, but make sure you read ALL the instructions!

And now, on to the round-up of amazing nonfiction posts throughout the Kidlitosphere!

400's: Words and Language (and nursery rhymes)
500's: Animals! Space! Math! Science!
600's: Human Body, Disease, (yeah, and the potty training books are next to the cookbooks. Don't ask me why.)
700s: Art, Sports, Dancing, Music and so on
800's: Literature, Poetry, and stuff that isn't really nonfiction but gets a number anyways

Hi Jeanne, thanks so much for having this up early. Deeply appreciated. Here's my link which I am interweaving with "It's Monday what are you Reading" - Paul Janeczko's "Requiem: Poems of the Terezin Ghetto"

Thanks Jennifer for hosting Nonfiction Monday. True Tales & A Cherry On Top features a picture book biography - Words Set Me Free: The Story of Young Frederick Douglass. I thought this book was perfect for posting on Jean Little Library as the book includes a dedication honoring librarians. And I echo that tribute!

Thanks for hosting. I was a Cybils NF Picture Book judge last year. It's a great experience.

Thanks for hosting today Jennifer! I love your call system today. Can you believe that my local library does all the kids' books by author name?

My post today is for the older set, a set of 24 stories about Northern Kids in Canada's history.

Well, I wouldn't say I'm completely in love with Dewey myself, but if given the choice I'd opt for a BISAC or adaptation thereof, not just author names!

After a long hiatus I'm finally back to blogging and looking forward to reconnecting with the Nonfiction Monday crowd. Today I'm sharing a review of Mark Kurlansky's book WORLD WITHOUT FISH.

Thanks for hosting! Ironically enough, I am also reviewing a title providing information on Frederick Douglass!

Russell Freedman's newest biography, Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass: The Story Behind an American Friendship is being reviewed over at Challenging the Bookworm.
