I don’t really do a formal TBR list, but here are a few picture books that came out in 2017 that I haven’t had a chance to borrow and read yet. There’s really no reason in particular why I haven’t read these yet, it’s just that there are so many picture books coming out every month that I simply haven’t gotten around to them! Hopefully this list will remind me to start placing some holds at the library….
