Browsing Picture Books in Juvenile Biography

Posted on:

 

 

The Juvenile Biography section is one of my favorite places to browse in the library. I learn something new every time I leaf through a picture book biography. The vivid illustrations put me right into the time and the place where the action is happening. We have a wonderful selection of engaging and informative picture book biographies available to check out with your library card. 

 

Here are a few recommendations. Click on a title to find it in the catalog.
