I don't think you should have any concern starting the year with non-fiction.  I am a Kindergarten/First Grade teacher and a very strong believer in teaching kids effective ways to read non-fiction.  I start teaching my Kindergarteners non-fiction reading strategies.  They can learn so much - that reading non-fiction is not just about the words in the middle of the page.  Most of the reading they do as they get older, especially as adults, is non-fiction.   What a better way to start the year.  I wouldn't be surprised if you find that you have a lot more students interested in reading as soon as the year begins.  Good luck!!
