I really enjoy reading children's illustrated books. The interplay between stories and words makes the experience so rich. Artwork can add so much context that it's not just about words, especially for young readers who are still learning the nuances of English. One of my favorite types of picture books are the ones that help us learn more about our world, especially our natural world. These are some illustrated children's books I've been enjoying lately.

“Wonderful Maps: The World As You've Never Seen It” by Simon Kuestenmacher is a collection of illustrated maps that depict things you might not be used to seeing in cartographic form: how our data travels around the world, how the world snores, the world's dogs and cats, and much more. I enjoyed flipping through this book, especially the illustrations by Margarida Esteves. I also liked that it was easy to jump to the maps I was most interested in.

“home” by Isabelle Simler is a wonderful poetic tour through the homes of 27 different creatures, illustrated with attractive and colorful drawings. My favorites were the octopus and the diving bell spider, which builds a bubble nest underwater and swims down to rest in the air pocket. I had never heard of the diving bell spider before this great book!

It's bedtime, and every creature has holed up inside its home for peace and rest: rabbits, puppies, songbirds, raccoons—wait for it! Those raccoons are awake! I highly recommend sharing “While You're Sleeping” by Emmy Kastner as a bedtime story. This gentle and funny book helps readers relax with rhyming, learning about creatures of the night and lots of fiction.

“The Great Lakes: Our Freshwater Treasure” by Barb Rosenstock and illustrated by Jamey Christoph guides the reader through the history of our Great Lakes, from their formation to their current ecological state. I loved learning about the path of a drop of water from Lake Superior to the Atlantic Ocean (it can take 300 years to make the trip!), as well as how glaciers formed lakes. This is a great picture book to share with young readers who want to know more about our natural world.
