Take Ten: favorite picture books

As I have mentioned before, we read a ton at my house, which includes bringing home a huge stack of pictures books from the library every opportunity we can (my husband tells me that I probably get on the librarians nerves for checking out so many at time. I know the truth though. They love me, since they see job security when I walk in the door. lol). I will attempt to keep my list at our top ten favorite picture books.;)

1. 123 Vs. ABC

I adore this one! It's such a fun, imaginative way to teach the ABC's and numbers.;)

2. Superhero Instruction Manual

3. Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs

I love the sarcastic humor of Mo Willems!

4. Monsters Love Color

This one is such a fun book on colors!

5. Dear Zoo

I don't know how I missed this one when I was a kid, but it's now a favorite at our home! We can no longer go to the zoo without quoting it.;)

6. Little Green Peas

All of the Little Green Peas books are wonderful!

7. The Dot

This one is such a great book for teachers, to show how some encouragement can go a long way.

8. My Blue is Happy

I love this one and how it talks about colors and the emotions they can express, but how those emotions can be totally different.

9. Hippos Go Berserk

I adore Sandra's books, as they are fun to read and my kids love the colorful pages! This one is an especially fun counting book.;)

10. Little Nelly's Big Book

This one is an adorable story about an elephant who is fairly certain she is a mouse, since she fits the description she found in a book.;)


  1. I used to love the Bernstein Bears books! In fact I still own my childhood books today - nostalgia, I suppose. :D

    1. I still have a few of mine from childhood that my daughter found and loves! I need to get more of the original titles, since we have a few of the newer ones, but I don't know that they quite compare.;)

  2. The Superhero Instruction Manual looks fun. I read Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs during a storytime when I worked on a bookmobile and the kids loved that one. This is a fun list!

    1. It's a super cute picture book, especially with all the superhero hype.;)
      I bet they loved it!

  3. I never read a comic book.So The only ones I read were the VA and Percy Jackson graphic novels. But we did something a little different. Allyson added some comics she read on her list.
