10. Best New Picture Books | January 2017

From a bedtime book for the youngest readers, to a classic tale of bravery and transformation, these are the picture books that we feel represent the best of January. To be fair, one of these books is a board book (Nighty-Night) and one of these books is an early reader book (My Kite is Stuck! and Other Stories), but all of them are really wonderful for kids ages 1 through 8.
