#GB101020 [Nonfiction Wednesday] List of Ten NFPB Posts Over The Years

Happy 10 Year Blogiversary, GatheringBooks! #GB101020


Myra here.

We are delighted to join the Nonfiction Picture Book meme 2020 hosted by Alyson Beecher @ Kid Lit Frenzy. We would also be linking our nonfiction choices with our reading themes throughout the year, when we can.

The whole month of July will be devoted to sharing our List of 10 for GatheringBooks’ 10 years in 2020 – #GB101020.

For this week, I will be featuring my list of 10 Nonfiction Wednesday posts over the past several years. Based on our archives (assuming that our tags/categorizations are correct), we have joined the Nonfiction Wednesday community in 2014. I will be sharing my list of 10 favourites, in no particular order. Click on the title or the image below to be taken to our review of the books.
