Picture books are often the first books enjoyed by young children, and are an important source of new language, concepts, and lessons for them. They form the basis for introducing young children to a love of stories, books, and reading. Perhaps most importantly, the experience offers a beautiful bonding opportunity for a parent/ grandparent/ older sibling with a child. And, of course, they are often very beautiful to look at - classics to be enjoyed by all ages.
