Hello there! Welcome to our little bookscape.

Picture This Book is dedicated to providing unbiased reviews on an eclectic selection of children’s literature, both past and present.

What children read matters as much as how often they do so. Hence, we try to curate the very best children’s titles out there. The layout and search options are also designed so that time-strapped parents and educators can quickly get the fuss-free and honest recommendations of books that they need.

Aside from the usual suspects (Seuss, Boynton, Carle, Willems and other ‘bestsellers’), many fantastic children’s books tend to be unjustly overlooked and, thus, sadly unread by their intended audience. So while we do feature deserving reads by the former, we also take pride in introducing books that are a little off the beaten track but worthy gems all the same.

Happy reading!

  1. Hello.

    I have been following your blog for some time. What a wonderful idea. It’s such a relief to find stories that dare to be different that I can then hunt for in the library with my daughters.

    I am just about to publish my first children’s picture book, ‘Arthur and the Elephant’. I believe that it is just the right amount off the beaten track for you to be interested in it and wondered if I could send you a copy? There is of course no obligation to review.

    Please read the synopsis below.

    What would you do if you found an elephant sitting on your bed? That’s the dilemma facing the young boy in my book, ‘Arthur and the Elephant’: a story for the under 5s.

    The zoo is closing and the animals need new homes. When an elephant shows up on Arthur’s doorstep wearing a bowler hat and a badly fitting raincoat, Arthur’s mum lets him in. What’s more she rents him Arthur’s bedroom. Will Arthur be able to blow the elephant’s cover and get his room back? Or will the elephant outwit him?

    If you let me have your postal address I can send you a copy immediately. There is, of course, no obligation to review. But if you did get the chance I’d love to hear your comments.

    Arthur and I look forward to hearing from you.
