Picture Books At The Library 68: Browsing Encouraged

PB at the library 2

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.)

Don’t have time to drop by the library or bookstore this week? No worries! ‘Picture Books At The Library’ is your one-stop browsing shop. Browse recent picture book titles here, then go and find them out there.
