SS Book Fantatics

What were some of your favorite picture books as a kid? If you have kids, what are your favorites to read to them?

My Answer: One of my favourites as a child was 'The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry and the Big Hungry Bear' by Audrey and Don Wood.

I also loved 'Can't You Sleep Little Bear'. Such sweet books, had the entire series. 

There were probably a lot more but htose are the two that stand out in my memory.

Now that I work in the library I get to see so many of the awesome picture books that have been released and there are too many to list that I love, but I will share two of my top picks:

'It's the Bear' by Jez Alborough. - written in rhyme and so cute, a perfect one to read aloud.

'Down by the Cool of the Pool' by Tony Mitton - again it rhymes and it has great actions for kids to join in with. 

There are so many more but I'll leave it there. 

Let me know what your favourites are.


Happy Hopping & Blogging. :D
