November is Picture Book Month!

You can read more about why picture books are so important on the website for the celebration,, but even better, why not read a picture book?

Illustrator Chris Raschka leads off the celebration, writing that “life is nearly unimaginable without pictures.” His wordless book, A Ball for Daisy, won the 2012 Caldecott Award for the most distinguished American picture book for children.

He is the illustrator of many other distinctive and expressively illustrated books, including:

Little Black Crow
