May we humbly suggest: your mum, dad, gram, pop, next door neighbor, dog, cat, hamster, friend, shy kids who sits behind you in math class, or maybe a favorite teacher.

November is Picture Book Month!

“A book, being a physical object, engenders a certain respect that zipping electrons cannot. Because you cannot turn a book off, because you have to hold it in your hands, because a book sits there, waiting for you, whether you think you want it or not, because of all these things, a book is a friend. It’s not just the content, but the physical being of a book that is there for you always and unconditionally.”

Mo Willems

Picture books combine text and artwork to tell a multi-faceted story. They are some of the first books we read and help to teach literacy and visual literacy, making them perfect for readers of all ages!
