My Top Children’s Picture Books Reviewed in 2015
by Susan Stephenson, www.thebookchook.com
Today I’d like to share with you my short list of the very top picture books I reviewed last year. I only review picture books I think are important in some way, mostly that they will be adored by children in a read-aloud. But these are the picture books that have also touched me in a particular way. Perhaps the combination of text and illustrations was outstanding. Perhaps my Storytime children and I laughed and laughed during that story or maybe there was a pause at the end while we all reflected over something important. Sometimes it’s just that I LOVED a certain book, in a way I was not able to fully articulate, in fact in an almost visceral way.
The list was created in Listly and is embedded below. I hope you’ll seek these books out in stores, and at your local and school libraries. While you’re there, ask a librarian for more recommendations. I’ve deliberately kept this list short, for ease of reading, but that means it scarcely scratches the surface of wonderful children’s picture books from 2015.
