Friends, colleagues, caregivers, we made it another year! Give yourselves a big high-five and self-hug. Under difficult conditions, we found ways to nurture our little ones and fill our libraries, classrooms, and homes with warmth and joy.

For me, 2021 was a year of teaching early literacy online and reading a lot — a lot! — of picture books. I am excited to share a selection of the best picture books from my class this year, arranged into my top five overall and top five in the categories of biography, humor, mindfulness, inclusion, and science. These books were not published in 2021, they were the ones that made my young learners — across time zones and hemispheres — lean in and light up. These were the books that made us all feel connected and better about the world around us.
