Just because it looks like a picture book, does that mean it's just for little kids? Of course not! Older readers can enjoy a picture book too, and fortunately for us there are a number of picture books written specifically for older readers. We have a special section for these books: Whether it's because the story is longer than a typical picture book or the story and subject are more appropriate or interesting for older kids, take a look at our Oversize shelves to find something interesting.
