I read 139 picture books this month! I had a difficult time deciding which ones to include in my top picks list, but I feel there is a nice mix of fiction, nonfiction, humor, as well as books celebrating diversity.
Visit my January-July posts for Goodreads links to the picture books I’ve read in 2016.

I like #8… think that is a good book not only children should read :o)
President Taft is a favorite with my 2nd graders. They love how funny it is but they also love that it just might be true. Great picks!
Night Animals was one of my favorite reads last year!
One of my favorites, too!
