This year I indulged in 114 acts of whimsy when I read 114 children's picture books. I can't get enough of them! I try to narrow my favorites down to 20 each year, but this year I just couldn't. So here are 30 of my absolute favorite picture books read this year. Almost all were published in 2016, but a few are backlist. And you'll have to forgive me, I can find the time to read them, but I can't find the time to comment on them all.
What would you add or challenge from my list? I'd love your recommendations!
