NYPL's Children's Books 2011: Picture Books
Annotation:A trip to the city takes a father and son past fleets of cars and trucks, a construction site, and a train yard. Fantastically crowded city scenes create a visual treasure hunt for younger children.
Annotation:This spare portrait of Jane Goodall, enhanced by photos and Goodall's own drawings, is an engrossing look at how a child's intense fascination with the natural world fueled a career as a famous animal researcher.

As children's librarians shared this year's newest books with the children in their local libraries, it became clear that the old adage - the more things change, the more they stay the same - is truer than ever. From Xboxes to iPads, from Wii consoles to the hottest apps, technology ages in a blink of an eye, but the timelessness of a good tale will always engage even the most tech-savvy child. Here are some of the best picture books of the 2011 year. Enjoy them with your families.
