My Week in Books: Picture Books? Again?

2014-09-12 10.11.13I’ve gotten a little behind with all the events and such happening lately. My list of picture books got very long, and as a matter of fact, I surpassed my Goodreads goal of 200 books in 2014 just this week. I hope I haven’t inadvertently repeated myself anywhere – but here are (still more) picture books I’ve read over the past couple of weeks.

Flora and the Penguin, by Molly Idle


As fun as Flora and the Flamingo, or maybe even more so. Love the expressions and gestures used by both Flora and the penguin.

Nana in the City, by Lauren Castillo


Fantastic book about coping with fear, and being open minded. This one belongs in the IB list for sure.

Outfoxed, by Mike Twohy


Who is being tricked now? Fun!

Alfie Runs Away,by Kenneth M. Cadow, ill. by Lauren Castillo


Fun little book about independence, and family – and the wisdom of mothers. You can see I’ve been on a Lauren Castillo kick lately – when I couldn’t get Nana in the City from my library, I picked up everything they had.

Telephone, by Mac Barnett, ill. By Jen Corace


Yes, we played this game in elementary school. The funny words are all right, but the wonderful artwork makes this book.

The Invisible Boy, by Trudy Ludwig, ill. by Patrice Barton


Oh, this book. This is an important one. Read it. Read it with your children.

I hope you find some time this week to fall into a quiet moment and enjoy a picture book.
