Nanny Recommended Best Picture BooksYour toddler is a bundle of energy. Play is your toddler’s work. There are times, however, when just sitting down and having snuggle time is important, especially when winter weather limits activities or a cold or a flu has your child (or you) feeling down.

Recently, HomeWork Solutions asked nannies on Facebook to share with us their favorite picture books for toddlers. A truly great picture book engages the youngster over and over, and provides the reader with endless options for interpreting the book to the youngster. Moreover, great picture books can tell their story with pictures alone - encouraging toddlers to start becoming independent readers. Did your favorites make the list? Read on to see.
