Hi!  Welcome to Celebrate Picture Books!

Here you’ll find picture book reviews along with fun activities to help your family celebrate life’s holidays—whether they’re profound or quirky—365 days a year.

Whether we’re observing Library Lovers Day or Grandparents’ Day, I’ll post a review of a picture book appropriate for that day and provide an activity complete with directions, a supply list, and printables to enhance each holiday. Every Sunday I’ll upload a week’s worth of holidays so you have time to get the book and activity supplies. I’ll republish each post on the actual holiday’s date so the site is always current.

Check “Reviewed Books” in the Sidebar for a complete list of each month’s picture book titles.

Of course all of the books and activities found here are wonderful to share any day of the year! Take a look around, celebrate your favorite days, and discover new ones!

All the books I review are currently available to buy at your local bookstore or online. Most of these may also be available at your town library or through inter-library loan. I have included a mix of recently published and classic books. I’m not paid for any reviews and all the books featured on this site I either own or have checked out from the library.

I invite you to share in the experience—let me know in the comment section what your and your children’s favorite books are and how you spend these holidays.

I hope you enjoy exploring this blog and discovering new reasons to celebrate life and celebrate picture books!
