Picture Book Round-Up

My picture book reviews took over my blog. It was inevitable. They’re quick books to read and quick to write up in a recommendation. So I’ve been hemming and hawing about what to do. I still want to mention good picture books that I’ve read. I’m still writing a few of my own. But this blog has always been about more than just picture books and children’s literature so I don’t want it to reflect that focus to first-time visitors to the site. What to do? What to do?

First I’m going to wrap up all the posts from 2017 in this post. Below are the books I’ve recommended in my Saturday Snuggles this year (and one that I posted on Instagram during my sabbatical that I just love all-around so I want to give it a shout-out here, too). That gets us caught up. And then I’ll likely pursue a monthly post of several that I’ve read and enjoyed. We’ll see how that goes. Either way, you still get some picture book reading ideas, I still get to enjoy finding good ones, and the blog has space for other entries and topics. So, the next time you stop by the library, take a minute to look for a few of these titles!

    I’ll be needing these recommendations from you again soon. My former youngest has gotten a bit old for picture books, and my new youngest is a wee bit young. 🙂
