Book Lists


A list by Jane Whittingham: "Gloriously illustrated picture books can be a sight to behold, but you just can’t beat the visual appeal and developmental benefits of photography. Board books with photographic illustrations provide babies and toddlers with a glimpse into the colorful world around them, and allow young children to see themselves reflected in the pages while introducing and celebrating children who might look, move and act differently. My newest toddler book, BEAR HAS A BELLY (Pajama Press, 2022), uses colourful photographs of children and animals to reinforce vocabulary while showcasing a diverse assortment of lively, loveable young children. Here are a few of my favourite photographically-illustrated board books, perfect for sharing with the little ones in your life (they make great gifts, too!)."
