A CELEBRATION of Picture Book Month


Picture Books

Are Childhood Treasures.



Let's Celebrate Picture Book Month
with a look at new picture books out NOW!


We all have memories of favorites, told to us while we snuggled in bed,
begging for just one more story.


It doesn't matter if  the story is in a paper book, on
Kindle, Nook,  or some other e-reader.

OR
You make up a hairy adventure
right off the top of your head?




READ TO YOUR KIDS!


It's the STORY that matters
not the mode of delivery. . .

SO. . .

Here is a list of  Picture Books worthy of being
  Childhood Treasures for your family.
