Nonfiction Picture Book Wednesday - Upcoming Releases January & February 2014

Thank you everyone for signing up for the Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge 2014.  I am excited already by a number of titles that I have found that will be released this year.  At the beginning of each month, I like to try to do a post to spread the word about recent releases or upcoming nonfiction titles.  It is not comprehensive, but I do try to include a variety of titles that might be of interest to readers.  Some of them I have read and some I have yet to read.  Often I include reviews in later posts.
