My favourite children's picture books of 2018 are ...

These fabulous picture books top my "Best of 2018" list:

book cover imageNothing Happens in This Book by Judy Ann Sadler, illustrated by Vigg - Don't be fooled by the title!  Everyone loves a parade, and readers will want to march right back to the beginning of this clever book and enjoy the madcap procession again and again.


book cover imageOcean Meets Sky by Eric and Terry Fan - The Fan Brothers' distinctive, atmospheric illustrations are marvels to behold.  This elegant book is a contemplative and curative journey fueled by love and loss.

book cover imageThey Say Blue by Jillian Tamaki - This is a wonderfully poetic exploration of colour and nature from a little girl's point of view.

book cover imageRed Sky at Night by Elly MacKay - A curated collection of old-timey weather sayings is artfully brought to life in this equisite informational picture book.

book cover imageBloom by Kyo Maclear, illustrated by Julie Morstad - This gorgeous biography of an influential designer has the empowering message of "dare to be different."
