What the heck is Nonfiction Monday?

Recently, someone asked me to explain "Nonfiction Mondays."

I replied:
The bloggers who participate in Nonfiction Monday are a group of librarians/ writers/ readers/ bloggers whose main interest is promoting Interesting Nonfiction for Children. (In fact, one group who blogs together named their blog exactly that. They call their blog:
I.N.K .
Interesting Nonfiction for Kids

We bloggers take turns hosting the links to the various blogs that are participating in Nonfiction Monday each week. Last month, readers of my blog discovered that it was my turn to be the host.

Do click on the link on my Monday blog to reach the master file and then click away to enjoy the various styles of Nonfiction Monday blog messages. And come back on other Mondays.

I enjoy doing these short reviews every Monday. But since I'm a full-time children's librarian and also write books in my 'spare' time, I limit myself to reviewing picturebook nonfiction -- nonfiction for preschoolers or early elementary.

As you wander through the blogosphere, you'll find other days set aside for more joint projects. ( Poetry Friday, for example)
