10 Beautifully Illustrated Children’s Books To Read With Your Kiddos

Danelys Sidron October 19, 2016 October 20th, 2016

When your little one’s first learning to read, it can be a long and sometimes mind-numbing trek through “pat-the-bunny” picture books  and seemingly endless fun with Dick and Jane. But no more! Some exceptional children’s books make not only great learning tools & great stories, but amazing eye candy–kid-friendly tales from today and yesteryear can also double as real works of art.

Way back in 2012, Flavorwire put together a list of the world’s most gorgeous children’s books. We’re dusting off their picks and narrowing it down to a few of our favorites. Fill up that burgeoning bookshelf with some of these:
