Picture books are those that combine visual and verbal narratives in a book format, aimed at young children. It is recognized as a genre in literature. The images in picture books use a range of media such as oil paints, acrylics, watercolor and pencil.

Some of the best-known picture books are Robert McCloskey's Make Way for Ducklings, Dr. Seuss' The Cat In The Hat, and Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are. The Caldecott Medal and Kate Greenaway Medal are awarded annually for illustrations in children's literature. From the mid-1960s several children's literature awards include a category for picture books.
