50 of our Favorite Children’s Picture Books

50 favorite picture books

First of all, let me start out by saying this post took me ten times longer to write as it normally would because my kids would walk by, see the pictures of their favorite books and bring them to me from their bookshelf to read. So when I say these are our favorite picture books, I mean it.

I love reading to my children and have written a few posts about our favorite read-aloud chapter books (The 50 Best Read-Aloud Chapter Books for Children and Our Favorite 50 chapter books for kids). Now I’m so excited to share our favorite picture books! Here is a post on Tips for reading to you child and why reading is so important!
