Librarian’s Talk Children’s Books: Recommendations for New Picture Book Authors

In the new Fresno County Public Library YouTube video series "Librarian’s Talk Children’s Books", several librarians will give parents and children recommendations of great children’s books available at your library branches. This week we will discuss new picture book authors. Parents rediscovering a library children’s collection can sometimes be a decade or two behind on exciting new children’s books.  Hopefully, today we can help you find some new fun authors and books. We will look at mainly new authors that first started published in the past ten years. Click on the author names to open a catalog search list of available titles by the author.
