My Favorite Picture Books in 2018

2018 was a fantastic year for picture books! Some in particular warmed my heart, made me laugh out loud, and conjured real man tears. Others straightened my spine, inspiring me get to work. As a picture book author, a lot of these stories were guiding lights throughout the year. They showed me the kind of heart and humor I want to write and affirmed my voice, reminding me it's okay to take risks. Check them out at your local library! Buy them online or at a bookstore! Give them to a teacher or a parent OR A KID! Better yet...read them to a kid. Here's to 2018 and looking forward to brand new stories just around the bend! The following list is not in any particular order. Just 20 picture book
