10 Favorite Picture Books (A Picture Book of the Day Retrospective)

This year, from September to June, I was part of Picture Book of the Day, a group project in which kidlit bloggers share great picture books on Facebook every weekday. We have just wrapped up for this year, which has inspired me to look back at the 10 books I recommended on the days it was my turn to share. They appear below in chronological order, along with links to the original posts on Facebook and related links on this blog.
