Kids are curious about the world around them and nonfiction is the perfect way to introduce them to that amazing world. History? Biography? Art? Science? Math? Animals? Sports? It’s all here and more besides! We love text and illustrations or photographs that will wow kids and adults alike and topics so fascinating that kids will want to go digging for more, more, more nonfiction!

Sandy Brehl (sandybrehl) | 1 comments This, Terri, is a nasty question, to me. I HATE naming favorites, which is why narrowing a field of possibilities to favoriteS/top titleS works much better for me. (note the plural)
With that said, I'll dive in and list some of my favoriteS from 2018:
Midnight Teacher: Lilly Ann Granderson and Her Secret School
by Janet Halfmann (Goodreads Author), London Ladd (Illustrator)
The Triumphant Tale of the House Sparrow
by Jan Thornhill
Anybody's Game: Kathryn Johnston, the First Girl to Play Little League Baseball
by Heather Lang, Cecelia Puglesi (Illustrations)
Shaking Things Up: 14 Young Women Who Changed the World
by Susan Hood with multiple illustrators
That's a good place to start...
You're up, Terri, what stands out for you in 2018 nonfiction?

You're right, Sandy ... when you love a genre, you're all in and it is hard to pick "just one." Love the idea of "top titles."

Actually, I am looking forward to seeing what people are recommending. When I stepped away to care for my mom 2 years ago, the shelves were bulging. So at the moment, I am working my way through and trying to make room for new reads.
