Welcome to the Picture Book Picnic!

Welcome to our first ever Picture Book Picnic blog post, where even the weather can’t spoil the fun!

So what is the Picture Book Picnic? Well, in a nutshell, it's all the best picture books from Walker Books and the perfect way to explore the wonders of reading with your little ones. Get together with friends or snuggle up with a loved one and share your favourite book, or discover something new from the many brilliant books on the Picture Book Picnic menu.

We have 25 fantastic picture books coming throughout 2011 for you to enjoy! You could be discovering the best party outfit with Polly in Polly’s Pink Pyjamas, meeting the wolf with Red Riding Hood in Yummy or even embarking on road trip in On the Road with Mavis and Marge – the adventures are endless!

Research shows that reading together is the single most important thing you can do to help your child's education. And picture books aren't just about reading the words on the page; they also present new ideas and topics in an accessible and creative way. Every single title in the Picture Book Picnic will entertain, engross and encourage a life long love of reading!

So welcome to our blog; take a look around and tell us what you think - we will have lots of fantastic extra content coming throughout the year including a book trailer, exclusive guest posts from many of our wonderful authors and illustrators, competitions and much much more!
