Picture Books Every Household Should Have

Drafts, the scourge of all writers - the scraps, that great ideas that faded away ... well, this post was exactly one of those. And now that the kids are growing out of picture books I think it deserves to see the light.

Also this is a blog post (originally dated 17th Aug 2008) that would probably be a tweet or a Facebook status update ... it's just a link to a great posting from the National Library, So What’s Your Choice Picture Book?

Picture books rock, introduce books/reading to kids and, despite the lack of response to their post (or do comments fade away over time, I hope not), it's still a great question - what's the best picture book?

My vote would go to one of the following:
So, what's yours?

Oh, and check out the awesome Thirteen ways to raise a nonreader as seen at the Kilbirnie Children's Bookstore

But none of these would be on the list ;-)

    it was just wonderful

  2. We haven't seen it but it's now on the library list to get out, thanks Sue

  3. dude you better get a pen.

    on my list would be anything by:
