At this time of year we generally share twelve of our favourite picture books published during the last twelve months. This year has seen a bumper crop of fabulous books and it was a struggle to cut my long-list of book choices down to such a small number - so I haven't. Today we are sharing twelve picture books which are arguably for slightly younger children. Tomorrow we will offer another twelve books, this time for slightly older children. We hope you find some of your favourites here and maybe some ideas for books you've not yet read. They are all available to borrow from Hampshire Libraries.
