We love picture books!  Picture book stories are for everyone and perfect for sharing.  To celebrate another great year at UAPL we are sharing some of our favorites from 2014.  

 

Dena's Pick: The Farmer and the Clown by Marla Frazee.  In this wordless picture book a baby clown has fallen off a circus train and is helped by a lonely farmer to find his family again.  Wordless picture books are a great opportunity for young readers to tell the story.
