Nonfiction Picture Book Releases - May - July 2012

The Nonfiction Detectives and I are hosting a Non-Fiction Picture Book Challenge.  My goal has been to kick off the month with the new nonfiction picture book release titles.  As I was going through books that I have found, I added titles from May and June that I had not previously posted.  Additionally, I am looking for more July titles.  I am quite certain that there are more nonfiction picture books being release than the one I have noted.

The links for the above books will take you directly to the book page for purchasing information, unless otherwise noted.  Please note, I do not make anything off these links or profit in anyway from posting the links.   I know that I am still searching for May releases and will likely do a Part II update. If you know of a book that should be included in this list, please include the title and author in the comments section and I will update the list. 

Feel free to link your nonfiction picture book reviews to the Mr. Linky below.
