Tania's Picks: Divine Picture Books, February 2017

Today is my birthday and I'm doing whatever I like! (That's the rule in our family.) And what I like is picture books. And sharing picture books. Here are some of my recent purchases--and all have swept me off my feet.

Some are a few years old, so you may have to hunt for them. Dots, I cannot find much info anywhere online, not even on the publisher website. So do keep on the lookout for it, especially for those of you looking for books on human rights and refugee issues. It's truly glorious, and really needs to be more readily available.

Enjoy every heady moment! All highly recommended.
