I don’t talk about picture books too often on this blog–I’m a YA librarian, so I pretty much stick to YA with a little adult thrown into the mix. But I’m a mama to two boys–a 3-year-old and a 5-year-old–so picture books and small chapter books are becoming the daily norm in our house. And this summer we’ve found some GREAT books! Books with fantastic illustrations, sweet story lines, and creative writing styles. Of course, the boys don’t necessarily realize all that–they just know they want to re-read the stories over and over again!
