Picture Books for Older Listeners

Girl reading a book
To complete the list of the Top Ten Picture Books, I have added them in this morning's post. I need to take a closer look at the books mentioned in today's list because I mostly read books for the little ones... you know, with my 2 Grandsons!

For older listeners (8+)

These books may very well appeal to younger listeners too, but they have enough complexity to interest most older listeners.
