Picture Books on YouTube

This post may contain affiliate links.

One thing I love to do with my kids is to browse YouTube for fun educational songs and videos that we can watch together. I have found so many amazing picture books on YouTube. Most are animated and set to music making the stories come to life. SO many of our favorite stories are read and told in a fun way on there. I made a great big list of them for you to check out. Be careful you will get sucked in and stay on there WAY too long!!  Your kids will just LOVE these!
