Top 10 Tuesday: Board Book Hidden Gems

August 29, 2017

I've mentioned before that we're up to our ears in board books (and a 2-year-old daughter (who likes to be read to all the time), but there are always a handful of titles that stick out from the rest. Here's a stack of new board books that have that stand-out feel, but might not be getting as much mainstream attention. Some of these are concept books, though I use that word liberally. One incorporates a house-wide scavenger hunt for missing items. All feature diversity in some way. And one explains quantum physics to a pre-reader-aged audience.


Bring this list to your local library or independent bookstore and add your own favorites in the comments below!
