We will select the winner based on the strongest, most original and all encompassing approach to getting nonfiction noticed.

All entries should be submitted by email to: interestingnonfictionforkids at gmail dot com. We will send you an email letting you know we’ve received your entry.

Good Luck to everyone!

What a wonderful idea, and a great way to stock up the library for a new school year. Many, many thanks to the I.N.K.lings! I'll post a link on my blog to spread the word, but before I do, since I'm in Canada and some of my readers are too, I just want to doublecheck if the contest is for those living in the U.S. only?

Thanks, Becky. We are definitely open to all international entries.

We've got to spread the nonfiction love as far as it can go, eh.

I'll spread the word after today's festivities...

I read the blog to find out about good books for my kids. In my house, I encourage my children to read non-fiction by making sure that they check out at least one non-fiction book from the library each time we go. I love giving books to my nieces and nephews for Christmas and like to give non-fiction because I know they don't get too many of those.

I visited the blog to check out the nonfiction books available for my 8 and six year old children. We visit the library at least once a week. My children are encouraged to read nonfiction as well as fiction!

I am a public school teacher and I am always looking for fun and motivating activities and books. Even though I'm a math teacher I still maintain a library in my classroom. I share my love of literature by reading to them, having them read silently and having them read to me. I know that books take students to a place that they might not ever get to go.
