As I mentioned in the other book post, I came across a ton - A TON - of new (and not so new) picture books in April and May.
Maybe five tons.
You know the whole roll around in a bed covered in money thing? I want to roll around in a bed covered in these books.
That sounds very weird (and it is) but it's also true.
If I could use a heart emoji in a blog post I would. Several of them. A dozen of them. Picture book love.
