If you are on Pinterest you'll know that it's great for picking up outlandish home decor ideas we'll never use and snarky sayings using great font. But it's also great for finding and sharing books. Picture books are ideal for Pinterest because of the visual factor.
But who should you follow on Pinterest to find the best picture books? These people!

If your blog or publisher or other favourite kids book-related Pinterest board isn't listed here, please email me or leave a comment and I'll add it!
Thanks so much for all the interest!
I have had a few inquiries on how to use Pinterest and as I am far from an expert I would like to direct people to the most recent Bloggiesta Pinterest minichallenge post.
Also, someone asked about whether or not there are keywords or hashtags used to identify children's books on Pinterest when using the search feature. I don't know of anything, but I think it is a good idea to use a keyword in your description to make it easier to search. How about kidlit like on Twitter?
What a good idea, I'll have to check out these links after work today :DReplyDelete
I'll also have to scan a few of my favourites in and pin them if I don't find them amongst these links.
Definitely add your faves so I can spy on them too! ;)Delete
This is a great resource. Thank you for setting it up!ReplyDelete
I hope it helps!Delete
I second Jen above - great to have this list, and thank you for including me.ReplyDelete
Actually, you were the inspiration, I wanted to know where you were getting all those cool ideas and one thing lead to another... Thanks Zoe!Delete
Thanks for setting it up! I have a board from Welcome to My Tweendom. http://pinterest.com/mytweendom/welcome-to-my-tweendom/ReplyDelete

Thanks for including us!Delete
Wow, love this list. Thank you. I'm just getting started on Pinterest and this will help a whole lot.ReplyDelete
Wow thanks! I have a board set up for books for Little S but haven't really explored things further. I foresee this being damaging to my credit card ;)ReplyDelete
This is the problem with book bloggers, they see my weakness and attack. ;)Delete
Thanks so much for this list. I'm new to both blogging and Pinterest and I'm still bumbling through both, but I'd love for you to add our website:ReplyDelete
My Pinterest id is under my name: Renee Cormier. Here is the link:
Thanks so much and have a great day! Renee
Thanks for posting this resource! All of this social media and sharing is daunting. How do you like Pinterest compared to, say Flickr or Tumblr? I signed up but haven't used it much yet. I find Tumblr a bit much, maybe I'll like Pinterest better. This is like a full time job: using and understanding all of these sites! Phew!ReplyDelete
Totally! I spend too much time on them. So much fun though!Delete
I think Flickr has its place and I use it for photo backup but I am not a pro so there's not much use for me in sharing photos I took. I love Pinterest because it is like a public bulletin board and I am a total nosy parker! I don't get Tumblr, I have to admit.
Genius idea! If you are still adding people to your list, I'd appreciate a mention :)ReplyDelete
Great list! Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
You can find me on pinterest, too!
Sorry I'm late coming over to the party from kidlitosphere yahoo group... Can you please add me?ReplyDelete
for my reviews (eventually all - still working on that!)
Thanks for doing this!
Thank you, what a great resource! I'm a children's book writer and have recently joined the fun at Pinterest. I'd love to be added to your list. Here I am at http://pinterest.com/bethanyjroberts/ReplyDelete
