I catalog hundreds of new picture books each year, and I read as many of them as I can. Unfortunately, I can’t review them all, but I can share them. Below are a few recent titles. Summaries have been taken directly from the books whenever possible. Rating System: If I enjoyed just the story, or just the art, I’ve given the book a 🙂 . If I liked both, the book gets two 🙂 🙂 . If I absolutely loved the book, I’ve given it three 🙂 🙂 🙂 . Don’t let my ratings keep you from reading a title just because I didn’t give it a smile. You may absolutely love it.
