2016 Picture Book Smackdown

A Youtube Live Event Celebrating Favorite Picture Books


Since 2013, we have held an annual picture book smackdown in honor of National Picture Book Month. This special event brings together author and student voices to share favorite picture books with the world. No matter what our age, picture books matter in our world, and we want to use this event to show a few that are special to us.
