The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt holds a strong 2nd place among the best children’s Kindle picture books this year.

3. Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin

Ages: 3 – 7

Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin comes in next on the list.

A favorite of mine, I had no idea dragons loved tacos SO much until I read this book.

They love all kinds of delicious tacos, like chicken tacos, beef taco, BIG tacos, and tiny tacos.

They even love tacos with salsa, but salsa is bad for dragons.

Fiery, funny must-read.

4. Llama Llama Time to Share by Anna Dewdney

Ages: 2 – 5

A very popular “hardcopy” book, Llama Llama Time to Share by Anna Dewdney also makes one of the top picture books for the Kindle this year.

Llama Llama has a new friend—Nelly Gnu, but when Nelly and her mom come over, it is nothing but sharing drama for little Llama.

He does not, will not, want to share his precious Fuzzy Llama toys with his Gnu pal.

This is a must-read about sharing and friendship.

5. Most Magnificent Thing by Ashley Spires

Ages: 3 – 7

Making it to #5 among Kindle top children’s picture books in 2016 – Most Magnificent Thing by Ashley Spires.

Centered on a little girl with a big imagination, this book is about creating “the most magnificent thing.”

She sets out to make this “thing” with her pup assistant, but feels discouraged when the most magnificent thing turns into a magnificent flop.

This book is about persevering through life’s downfalls.

6. The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore by William Joyce

Ages: 4 = 8

One of my personal favorite children’s Kindle picture books this year – The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore by William Joyce.

Morris Lessmore is a hardcore bookworm who loves stories and everything about books.

When his books, and his life, are scattered in strong storms, Morris must find peace, quiet, organization, and the best stories of all in a special place.

Adri is a unique, beautiful little fish with big dreams, but a pint-sized fishy body. In this book, his mom and dad encourage Adri to embrace his differences because there’s “only one you.”

Thought-provoking, heartfelt must-read with colorful, vivid illustrations.

8. Stick and Stone by Beth Ferry

Ages: 4 – 7

Stick and Stone by Beth Ferry holds its own as 8th of the top 10 kids’ Kindle picture books this year.

Once upon a time… I have always wanted to write that, but it only half applies to this story.

You see, in the beginning, Stick and Stone were separate, alone, and lonesome.

However, when Stick rescues Stone from a bad situation, they become the best, albeit most unlikely, of friends.

Ages: 4 – 8

Coming in at #9 – Rocket Writes a Story by Tad Hills.

Rocket is a sweet pup with a love for stories, and books in general. He loves their pictures, their words…everything about them.

Unfortunately, Rocket also loves to write, but his creativity is blocked.

That is until a little yellow bird shows him a new perspective on the world around him.

10. Little Blue Truck by Alice Schertle

Ages: 4 – 7

The final item among kids’ Kindle picture books for 2016 – Little Blue Truck by Alice Schertle.

Blue is a little truck with lots-a heart and tons-a friends.

Lucky for her, when she gets stuck in the mud of an icky, yucky road, her new farm pals come to her rescue.

This is a book about respect, friendship, help, and compassion.

I loved the vibrant, vivid blues!
