Picture Books- Top Ten List

Picture Books
I recently read this cool article by Laurie Mayhew from Seattle Children's Literature Examiner titled Top ten list: picture books. Laurie says, "When you say "children's books" to someone, chances are the image that pops into their head is that of a picture book. Picture books are most children's gateway into the world of literature and reading. At best, they combine a great story with fabulous pictures and bring a child's imagination to life." 


Laurie breaks down her list with age groups... I like that organization! I'll start today's post with the little folks first.
