Nonfiction Monday, the roundup

Welcome to Nonfiction Monday at bookstogether! Please leave a comment with a link to your post (and a brief description, if you'd like); I'll update this one with your links throughout the day. Don't forget to come back and click through to later posts (including mine on Kathleen Krull's Kubla Khan: The Emperor of Everything; Viking Juvenie, 2010). Til then, have a merry Nonfiction Monday!

Good morning!

Mary Ann Sheuer of Great Kid Books features two animal books for young readers today: Creature ABC and Out of Sight. She writes, "Both are amazing visual treats, and would be great paired with a set of animal figures. While they are naturally perfect for young preschoolers and kindergartners, they are so visually stimulating that older kids love looking at them too!"

Jone reviews three books by Steve Jenkins at Check it Out (including my favorite, Bones).

Over at Shelf-employed, Lisa is featuring a new series, All Aboard! about trains - perfect for PreK - Gr 2.

Angela reviews the YALSA nonfiction award shortlistee Janis Joplin: Rise Up Singing at Bookish Blather.

Shirley has Life-Size Aquarium at SimplyScience (we love the Life-Size books).

Abby the Librarian has a review of Bones by Steven Jenkins.

Afternoon check-in

Welcome to Stacey Loscalzo, whose very first Nonfiction Monday post addresses her own bias against nonfiction.

Cindy Dobrez and Lynn Ritan of Bookendsat Bookends are writing about I Dreamed of Flying Like a Bird: My Adventures Photographing Wild Animals from a Helicopter by Robert Haas.

Alex Baugh of The Children's War posts about a book called Parallel Journeys by Eleanor Ayer with Helen Waterford and Alfons Heck.

Catherine Nichols of The Cat in the Hat posts a review of a book about sloths for beginning readers.

At Apples with Many Seeds, Tammy Flanders "is looking at how cities developed over several centuries and several continents. Metropolis [by Albert Lorenz] gives us plenty of information about cities, in a very graphic way, making the book accessible for strong and struggling readers. It's a time sink. Just so much to look at."

Robert at Wrapped in Foil says it's a busy time of year, but she still found time to praise The Bat Scientists by Mary Kay Carson.

Pink Me is in (finally, she says!) with Ballet for Martha: The Making of Appalachian Spring, by Jan Greenberg and Sandra Jordan, illustrated by Brian Floca (this is one of my favorite nonfiction titles of 2010).

The Wild About Nature blog reviews EcoMazes: 12 Earth Adventures by Roxie Munro.  And, "We are also continuing our celebration of the holiday season with another book giveaway!  Stop by, read and enter for your chance to win!"

Time for bed

Tara chose an old seasonal favorite--Truman Capote's A Christmas Memory--for her first Nonfiction Monday Post.
