Pied Piper Pics

Here at Pied Piper Pics, Youth Services Librarians from the Williamsburg Regional Library in Virginia offer reviews of their favorite picture books. These reviewers are experienced in providing storytimes to children of all ages, and have been known to read aloud to an adult or two in their time as well. It is the opinion of the WRL’s Youth Services staff that picture books have something to offer to readers of all ages. Each review suggests appropriate age level of the reader, as well as the most suitable audience.
