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 we love these recommendations over at Redeemed Reader.

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