It's a whole lot easier to say what these books aren't -- fiction -- than to say what they are, because there's so much that they can be. The universe is big and time is long, and every year writers and illustrators immerse themselves in the truth and sweat the details to put more of it within the grasp of young readers. We want your nominations for the non-fiction picture books that did the best job in 2006 of bringing fact to imagination and imagination to fact.
