  3. These all look adorable, but I’m especially loving the covers for Welcoming Elijah and A Little Courage!

  5. I’m always on the lookout for more picture books, so I’m loving this post! Thanks for sharing. There are so many good ones coming out this year.

  6. These are so cute! Almost makes me miss the days I worked in a day care and would read these to the kids. Although maybe someday I’ll get the chance to volunteer in a library (when my kids are gone) and I can read picture books to the kids there.

  7. What an adorable reading list!

  8. Look at these cute picture books! I’m always on the look out for my niece. Hope you enjoy all these!

  9. Oh these look awesome. I especially like the look of Off ToSea, A Little Courage and Butterfly. That one especially looks adorable. 🙂

  10. All of these sound wonderful. I think I’ve seen Milo Imagines the World other places as well. Hope you get a chance to read all these.

    Thanks for sharing and for visiting my blog.

  11. I really love this topic because it gives me great options to get for my son!! He can also never have enough books. haha

    • I’m so glad. I hope he enjoys the books you pick out for him, (or he picks out for himself, if you show him this post. 🙂 )

  12. Welcoming Elijah has a cute cover. Enjoy your books and thanks for visiting my post! 🙂

  13. These all look really great, thank you for putting them on my radar, I am always on the lookout for books I think my kids will enjoy and I see some here that definitely will fit the bill!

  14. So many great picture books coming out. My daughter is seven and has been into chapter books for a couple years now; I miss picture books!

    • Yes, there sure are. I wonder how many of them are interesting to adults, too?

      I hope your daughter finds lots of chapter books that appeal to her this year.

  15. I just got an early copy of Off to See the Sea! It’s super cute! Happy Reading in 2021!

  16. It’s kind of like a way to revisit childhood to look back on favorite picture books. 🙂 I haven’t heard of any of these newbie titles, but I hope you enjoy!! Thanks for visiting Finding Wonderland.
