We haven’t been able to write as many picture book posts as we had hoped during the official month celebrating the picture book, but we plan to keep on keeping on when it comes to talking about our favorite picture books!

But on the last day and at the 11th hour of the official celebration, here are a few of the favorites that come to mind from the many hours spent reading to LitKid back in her earliest days (board books included) … this is all from memory (and a 47-year-old’s nearly-midnight memory at that), so it is by no means complete:


The Dot 

Sometimes I Like to Curl Up in a Ball

Skippyjon Jones

Guess How Much I Love You

Time for Bed

Ruby in Her Own Time

Junk Day on Juniper Street (a nostalgia pick; one of mine from long ago)

Harry the Dirty Dog (again… one from my childhood, too)

Diary of a Spider (… and a Fly … and a Worm)

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

Tumble Bumble

Brown Bear, Brown Bear

Oh My Gosh, Mrs. McNosh (all Mrs. McNosh books, and the Farmer Brown ones as well) 

The Noisy Way to Bed

Pajama Time

Hey! Wake Up!


Albert the Bear

Tomorrow, I will look at our bookshelves and realize how many I left off the list.

But that just leaves more favorites to write about another time.
