  1. Little Robot – Ben Hatke
  2. This is Sadie – Sara O’Leary and Julie Morstad
  3. Pool – Ji Heyon Lee
  4. Interstellar Cinderella – Deborah Underwood and Meg Hunt

I haven’t read all that many picturebooks this year. (I second Interstellar Cinderella and Pool, though.) The one that sticks out for me is The Princess and the Pony by Kate Beaton:

This is the story of a princess who yearns to be the strongest, most capable warrior in her kingdom and her noble steed … that happens to be a teeny pony that farts a lot. A fun tale and a great way to start conversations on strength, femininity, and farts!
