Picture Books At The Library 84

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.)

      • I’ll have to check them out. I must start visiting my library again soon!
        Actually I intend to in the search for some books. Maybe you could help me. I’m looking for (non-fiction) picture books that explain a variety of December cultural festivities. Any ideas?

    • There’s a book called Children Just Like Me: Celebrations. It was published in 1997. My library doesn’t actually own it but it’s in our library system. I’m sure there are more books out there that are more recent and would be useful to you. Sorry I’m not more helpful. I tend to pay more attention to fiction picture books than to nonfiction. But if I come across anything, I’ll let you know.

      • Thanks Lauri. That’s a great start. I’m visiting my library tomorrow so will see if they have a copy. Don’t look too hard – only if you come across something. 🙂
