Top Ten Favorite Picture Books from the Last Five Years

toptentuesday

I know my subject this week might seem suspiciously specific. There’s a reason for this. When my friends started having babies for me to buy presents for, I always gave my childhood favorites. Lots of Eric Carle and Dr. Seuss. When I moved to New York, I realized that all the picture book authors and illustrators working right now need $$$ too. Also, they are creating the most beautiful stories. I want to support that! So now, I try to give mostly contemporary picture books to the little ones in my life. Here are some of my favorites from the last five years. Let me know if you have any favorites in the comments! I’d love to check them out!
