The following picture books are, in my opinion, some of the best picture books ever created, ranging from classics to recently published books to some that are out of print. Following each link, you will find a synopsis of the book accompanied either by related information, such as biographical facts about the picture book’s creator, or by connections to present day social phenomena; another reoccurring theme is the importance of early exposure to books and literacy. My hope is that this information and these connections will add to the experience of reading the books for you.
