Favorite Picture Books of 2020


Few things are as innocent and lovely as a good children's picture book. I was lucky enough to read many wonderful ones during 2020 and thought I would share my top picks. I might do more detailed reviews of some of these later, but I wanted to share a quick list featuring all of them. Please note, these are picture books I read during 2020, not necessarily always ones that were published that year.

Have you read any of these titles? What were your favorite picture books last year?
