Can’t hack another round of The Hungry Caterpillar? Yeah. We get you. Kids are fantastic, but every parent knows that children’s media can be a mixed bag. From *that* unbearable TV show that your toddler is, of course, obsessed with, to the hideous accompanying books that extend your suffering all the way to lights out, we’re here to help break you out of the rut with some of 2021’s best children’s books.
From stories that start essential anti-racism conversations to books that keep little hands busy while you’re on the go, 2021 has been a great year for children’s publishing so far. So, whether you’ve got newly mobile toddler or a seasoned pre-schooler, here are our top picks for kid’s books they – and you – will want to return to, time and again.
