Founded by author and storyteller Dianne de Las Casas, Picture Book Month is an international literacy initiative that celebrates the print picture book in an increasingly digital age. Picture books offer illustrations that support the story and are a wonderful way to share the joy of reading and learning with children of all ages! They are especially important for young children as they develop literacy skills.
In honor of Picture Book Month, Kelli has put together a list of some of her favorite picture books. Enjoy!
