Best of the year Non-fiction! This is the last list. Notice that Heart and Soul (which showed up on every single best-of-the-year list I consulted, even the ones that are not included in the Wordle) is listed both in the Picture Book list and this Nonfiction list--that is because it is listed in both categories by various journals.
Click on this Wordle so you can see a full-size, readable link and print it. The larger the title, the more frequently it was listed in a Best of the Year list. Sources consulted include: School Library Journal, Hornbook, Kirkus, Publishers Weekly and New York Times.

In about 1/8 the amount of time, I created a Wordle for the Best Juvenile Fiction Books of 2011. I guess once you use it once, you get the hang of it. Feel free to click on the link and print for teachers, people looking for gift ideas, and kids who are looking for a good book. It was created from Best of the Year lists in School Library Journal, Hornbook, Publishers Weekly, Kirkus, and New York Times.
