Recently Read: Great Picture Books

wolfcamp26067501I’ve been swimming in seas of great picture books lately! There was a boom in storytime visits at our library with Kindergarten and early elementary grades- usually happens before holiday/winter break fever sets in! So, needless to say, I had about quadruple the number of storytimes to prepare for; in doing so, I happily discovered a pile of new, amazing picture books. I enjoyed and work absolutely recommend any of these titles- for read alouds or just for the pure joy of it:

 

Cat Knit by Jacob Grant*
Max at Night by Ed Vere*
I’ll Wait, Mr. Panda by Steve Antony*
The Magic Word by Mac Barnett, illus. Elise Parsley*
Penguin Problems by Jory John, illus. Lane Smith*
Leave Me Alone by Vera Brosgol*
Everyone is Yawning by Anita Bijsterbosch*
Grumpy Pants by Claire Messer*
Hooray for Today! by Brian Won*
I Will Not Eat You by Adam Lehraupt, illus. Scott Magoon*
Wolf Camp by Andrea Zuill
Dragon Was Terrible by Kelly DiPucchio, illus. Greg Pizzoli
Pug Meets Pig by Sue Lowell Gallion, illus. Joyce Wan
Thelma the Unicorn by Aaron Blabey
Also An Octopus by Maggie Tokudo-Hall, illus. Benji Davies
