Since I am in Asia, there is a major time difference and I am likely to be asleep while you are wanting to add your contribution or check out others, so I will be using a Linky. Please check out all the contributors for the latest Nonfiction Monday!

If you are unable to add your post, please feel free to comment or email me and I will add your post asap.


  1. Hi there! It's great that you're hosting today! I laughed at your comment about babysitting the class beetle and its escape. I cringed when we had to care for the class rat (of all things). I was tempted to let it escape, but I preferred knowing it was going back to the classroom. Great review about the beetle book. And thanks for hosting Nonfiction Monday!

    1. I'm still on the lookout for that little thing! Thanks for linking up!

  2. Hi, thank you so much for hosting this week. Here's our contribution for the week since the mr linky seems a little wonky today - I'm not sure if it's just me or there's really something wrong with it. Here's my link though for my review of Tomas and the Library Lady by Pat Mora and Raul Colon: http://gatheringbooks.wordpress.com/2012/07/23/nonfiction-monday-tomas-and-the-library-lady/

  3. Thanks for hosting! My contribution is Women Explorers by Julie Cummins (http://theswimmerwriter.blogspot.com/2012/07/my-adventures-with-nellie-cashman.html)

  4. Thanks for hosting! I'm in with I Am Different! Can You Find Me?, by Manjula Padmanabhan. It's a terrific interactive picture book that celebrates the differences of worldwide languages, cultures, and more.

  5. I really appreciated the beetle stories. We had some Japanese friends who were very excited to find a rare beetle here in Arizona. Their children learned a lot about beetle life cycles and animal husbandry from keeping them as pets.

    Sounds like many of us are exploring languages and culture today. Thank you for hosting.

  6. That's fascinating about the beetles - we have that book at our library, but I didn't realize they were such a big deal in Japan. Interesting!

    I have a book about coral reefs today by Jason Chin, http://jeanlittlelibrary.blogspot.com/2012/07/nonfiction-monday-coral-reefs-by-jason.html

  7. I don't write about nonfiction EVERY Monday, but this week I did! The Olympics have me focused on remarkable profiles: http://UnpckingPIctureBookPower.blogspot.com.

    Thanks for hosting- I always check out the links :)

  8. I have How They Croaked over at MotherReader:


    Thanks for hosting!

  9. Thanks for hosting. My selection is "The Daring Miss Quimby" written by Suzanne George Whitaker and illustrated by Catherine Stock.
