This is the first of a series of thoughts reflecting on why we love picture books so darn much. I think the number one reason I love picture books is story. We humans have an innate longing for story-- seen from our earliest scratchings on cave walls to the winners at the Oscars. Picture books are a place for all kinds of stories to be lovingly passed along to the newest members of our human family. Yep, I think picture books are wonderful because of the stories they hold.
Why do you love picture books?
