Growing up, the day after Memorial Day was usually the “first day of summer” for my sisters and me. Parents back to work, house to ourselves, pool open … The possibilities were endless. And now, an adult in a strange place this year because nothing has gone as it should, today feels like any other day. Why not make it a bit special by kicking off the 2021 Picture Book Preview posts? That’s right, back once again with a fresh new line up of what I’ve gathered so far… And this is just the start! The past two years there have been a total of 17 or 18 preview posts of the picture book covers I’ve rounded up. Take that times 50-80 titles per post and you wind up with a bounty of new titles on the horizon. Here we go! Enjoy!
