2017 was another strong year for picture books. As I compiled my top 10 list, I realized that there’s nothing that I’m quite as passionate about as I was about my top two picture books from 2016, They All Saw a Cat and Radiant Child, though Town Is by the Sea comes close. But still. There were plenty of books that I loved, and it was hard to choose just 17 to highlight for the year. (And thanks to Carrie Gelson and Alyson Beecher for the inspiration to choose 17 favorites! So much more fun than choosing just 10.)

Love The Antlered Ship, Her Right Foot, and After the Fall. Town is by the Sea was never at my bookstore. Ordered. Language of A Different Pond is beautiful. I’d include Wolf in the Snow (my favorite) and Lines.
I haven’t read any of these and shall search for all! Are you doing a top 17 “adult” books too? I get some of my best reads from your yearly list. 🙂
