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.) Check your local library or bookstore for availability.
Wow! I can’t believe this is my 100th Picture Books At The Library post! I enjoy sharing the new titles my library acquires and some of you have told me that my lists have been useful to you. And that makes me happy! So without further delay, let’s take a look at this week’s batch of beautiful picture books.
