Birthdayographies

Welcome to Birthdayographies, where we celebrate picture book biographies one birthday at a time. Currently, almost 700 books are included and new titles are added regularly. Search for a picture book biography about a particular subject, or find out who shares a birthday with you.

(Unfortunately, during the recent platform switch, not all book covers imported.)

**Please note that I have a backlog of new titles to be added. If you’ve sent me your book’s information, please be patient. I might be seeking an intern to help me catch up.
