Finding worthy picture books to place before your preschooler can sometimes feel like wading through a garbage heap looking for a few precious pearls. We have endless options available to us, but not all books for the 5 and under crowd are created equal. In this list you’ll find the ones worth treasuring: well-written stories with beautiful illustrations, excellent content, thoughtful characters, and proven literary value. These are picture books that have stood the test of time and deserve a place in your home library.

Have we left out a favorite title of yours? We’d love to know what your favorites are!
