WELCOME! The Beauty of Picture Books was created to foster continual awareness about the power of picture books to inspire a love of reading, develop critical reading and thinking skills, and create special moments of learning, love and wonder. Our blog hosts contributions from authors, illustrators, parents, grandparents, agents and even a little bear. If you'd like to join our list of blog contributors, see our guidelines here!
