There wasn't a whole lot to laugh at in 2020, that's for sure. Yet a great big list of wonderfully funny picture books came out, and here are some of the best. A bit of much needed levity for the year.
I've read snail picture books before, but few have plumbed their humor quite as well as Tabor has in "Snail Crossing". Less a story of persistence than a lesson in karma, this may well be the first snail-adjacent picture book that has ever made me AND my kids laugh out loud for long periods of time. I can think of not better praise than that.
