Best Picture Books of 2017 from SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

End of the year recognition lists of outstanding picture books excite me. I'm curious if new books I love have been recognized by others. With the picture books I haven't yet read, I'm quick to check them out from the local library.

The verdict is in from the School Library Journal. SLJ has selected 14 shining titles as top recommendations for best picture books. One of my favorite picture book authors, Patrick McDonnell, has a book that made SLJ's list: THE LITTLE RED CAT WHO RAN AWAY AND LEARNED HIS ABC'S (THE HARD WAY).
