Favorite Books of 2018: Picture Books

This year, I read a lot of picture books - for fun and for my job. I read over 700 picture books.

Many of the books I read I loved.
Here are a few memorable ones that stuck out in my mind. Some had sweet messages, some had amazing illustrations, and some simply brought tears to my eyes. Several of them I've reviewed this year on the blog, but of  course not all of them.
