A Century of Picture Books

"If I had to choose a single reason why I believe picture books are important,

it would have to be this;

Picture books are meant to be shared."

-Eric Ode



November is Picture Book Month!

I think it's safe to assume that everyone has a picture book... or two... or many, that they've cherished throughout their life.  Whether it's one that your parents read to you when you were little, one that you read to your children now, or the one that's been passed down for generations, picture books are meant to be shared with others, and that's what makes them so dear to our hearts.
To celebrate Picture Book Month, here's our list of favorite picture books throughout the century!

A Century of Picture Books
There you have it! While picking only three books from each decade was not an easy task, especially considering we could only put Dr. Seuss and Shel Silverstein on once, there are so many other picture books that we love! Now we challenge you to read a different picture book every day this month (though is that even really a challenge?). To help get you started, we found this handy calendar to give you ideas of topics to choose! Be sure to click on the picture on the left to visit the official Picture Book Month website for even more activities, inspiration, and cute materials.
