Children’s Books

Hello There, Picture Book Lovers!

There’s nothing more wonderful than watching a child’s eyes light up as s/he thumbs through a favorite picture book. At Picture Book Depot, we celebrate the picture book by helping parents and their budding readers find the best-written, best-illustrated books around.

Looking for a great picture book that’s reviewed, rated and ready to go? You’re in the right place.

Welcome to Picture Book Depot.



THE FOLLOWING BOOKS ARE, IN MY OPINION, HOTTER THAN HOT!

As you’ve probably already guessed, this page is for the hot, hot, HOT picture books I come across in my day-to-day grind.

How does a book get on my HOT LIST? Well, first it must be well-written. Then of course it must be memorable, and it must be relevant. Oh yes, and reading it has to be an experience much like sitting my posterior on a keg of dynamite with a lit fuse.

In short, it has to blow me away.

That being said, remember that these picks are completely subjective! Doesn’t matter whether the book made it to the New York Times Bestseller’s List, or I found it at Ben’s Bargain Basement on close-out day. If it’s good, I’m listing it.
