Five star picture books shout, “I’m the perfect blend of words and pictures.” I also wish I wrote them! They have emotional weight and when read aloud the words sing. They are books kids and parents will love, and teachers can use in some capacity whether to help readers fall for books or be used as mentor texts. Picking just five was not easy!
