It was REALLY hard to narrow the list down to 25 favorites–I had to cut some books that we really love. Some of the books on the list have been favorites for years and some are newer additions to the list. For a more comprehensive list, check out the tab at the top of the blog page: Picture Books, which lists these 25 favorites and many, many more! :)
