Picture Books At The Library 224

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.

    • I’m still playing catch up on 2020 titles, but I believe most of these published in the latter half of last year. It’s sad in a way to have so many wonderful new titles, but still not be open to the public to come in and browse them.
