Picture Books At The Library 195

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.

Three rhymers, one wordless, and nine perfect prose picture books make up this week’s lovely list. Enjoy!
