List of Even More Favorite Current Published Picture Books

Here’s a list of more of my favorite recently published picture books.

Order these books in from your local library or go read them at your local bookstore. Fill out a picture book rubric for each one and put it in your personal writer’s notebook so you can evaluate each picture book from a writer’s point of view. Post reviews about these picture books on your blog. Give 5-star reviews of these books on Goodreads and Amazon. Use these books as springboards of inspiration to help you become a better picture book writer.

Read these and enjoy!
