Kidlitpicks is a picture book club that Mel co-founded with Summer from Reading Is Our Thing on Instagram. Each month, our featured contributors share books on a thoughtfully-chosen topic to foster larger discussions around the themes that readers see over and over again in the books we share with our children. At the end of the month, one book from each contributor is added to a curated booklist, all of which are available you for you to view below.

Have a book that matches our current theme? We'd love to see and share it! Tag your Instagram post with the kidlitpicks hashtag of the month, and we might feature it on our account!
