Here is our list of favorite February picture books. This month we’re reading books about love to celebrate Valentine’s Day (of course), and you’ll also notice our list is packed with favorite folk tales and fables.

I love reading folk tales and fables with my kids all year-round, but especially during the winter.

February, of course, is also Black History Month, and you’ll find lots of great titles in this list of our favorite picture book biographies from U.S. History, as well as this list of books to help you talk with your kids about racism.

At our house, we’ll also keep reading from the heap of snowy, wintry books on the January booklist.
