Featured Picture Books

Since Design Mom launched, favorite picture books (and a few tween books too) have been a regular feature. But not just books, we love authors and illustrators too — find their interviews here!

As part the 5th Anniversary Celebrations of Design Mom, I published a list of my Top 50 Picture Books. And I’ve shared my Top 20 Christmas Books as well.

Below, you can find a list (with links) to every picture book I’ve ever featured. This is a great place to start if you’re looking to build your library, or searching for a treasured gift. Most recently featured are at the top:
