Catching Up on Favorites

Contrary to what my blog would imply, I haven’t slacked off in my reading of picture books. I’ve just been lax about posting my favorites. So here, in one fell swoop, are the favs that have accumulated since January 2015 (sheesh, that long ago?), broken out by year.

They seem to have multiplied like, well, you know.
