In my position as a technical processing assistant at the DeWitt Community Library, I catalog a lot of new picture books. Unfortunately, I cannot review them all, but I do try to read them all. Below are a few I’ve cataloged recently. I have assigned a 🙂 to my favorites. (Whenever possible, summaries have been taken directly from the books.)
