Last night, I picked through our shelf and made a pile of the books that were my personal favorites. Instead of me reading to them, they read to me. Times change quickly, don't they?
Anyway, I wanted to share my favorites that are currently in house. This short list by no means covers them all. *sigh* That would require a bigger house, a bigger shelf. Here goes:
The Book Pile
Are You a Horse? by Andy Rash
Waking Beauty by Leah Wilcox (illustrated by Lydia Monks)
Brontorina by James Howe (illustrated by Randy Cecil)
I'm Not Afraid of This Haunted House by Laurie Freidman (illustrated by Teresa Murfin)
The Circus Ship by Chris Van Dusen
My Truck is Stuck by Kevin Lewis (illustrated by Daniel Kirk)
This Is Not My Hat by Jon Klassen
The Runaway Pumpkin by Kevin Lewis (illustrated by S.D. Schindler)
A Visitor for Bear by Bonny Becker (illustrated by Kady MacDonald Denton)
Sam & Dave Dig a Hole by Mac Barnett (illustrated by Jon Klassen)
I Want My Hat Back by Jon Klassen
Journey by Aaron Becker
Lily's Purple Plastic Purse by Kevin Henkes
Falling for Rapunzel by Leah Wilcox (illustrated by Lydia Monks)
I have a whole slew of other favorites I keep track of on Goodreads. According to them, I've read 524! That's a fair amount. Out of curiosity, I looked for my last two picture-book favorites from the library...they were so good, they're worth a mention:
Adele and Simon by Barbara McClintock
Don't Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late! by Mo Willems
Okay, that's it for now. I'm done listing.
Thanks for the list! I'm always on the lookout for new books to read to my grandchildren! All nine of them! ;-)
Nine grandkids! How awesome is that? And you're welcome, btw! I love making lists, and I love books...so there ya go!
