Tania's Picks: My Favourite Picture Books for 2016

2016 may have been a tough year collectively, but golly it produced some outstanding picture books. And we can so easily find comfort and joy and beauty in the humble picture book, non? I know I did.

Herewith my favourite picture books from 2016--in no particular order--and trust me when I say I could have added 100 more.

It's so heartening to see the children's book industry continue to do so very well. In Australia, we now account for a whopping 34% of book sales. It seems people like children's books, yes they do. For 2017, I'm hoping our industry edges ever closer to receiving the recognition and exposure it sadly lacks and so deserves.

Enjoy these beautiful books--they are true gems. Click each one to read a review or be taken to a synopsis. And I make no apology that this list is unabashedly long and that there are many favourite books I've missed.
