Picture Books for Entertainment and Education

Children’s picture books work both as a way to help children learn reading and other topics, and as enjoyable activities that children can engage with on their own or with adults to help them. Book Depository sells picture books across the spectrum of education and enjoyment, with many of the best books helping children to learn while they’re enjoying themselves.

Timeless classics to spark the imagination

Even with new picture books being released every day, some stand the test of time to become favourites that survive generations. Many of our bestsellers were the books that parents enjoyed when they were young, and now read to their own children. Books from authors like Eric Carle (The Very Hungry Caterpillar), Julia Donaldson (The Gruffalo) and Judith Kerr (The Tiger Who Came to Tea) have stood the test of time and are all available to buy online.
