Must Have Picture Books Linky

The Teacher Wife
The Teacher Wife is hosting a fabulous Linky Party (which I can't believe I almost missed) in which I have to list my top 5 must have books. This, however, is turning out to be a very difficult task. As I perused the many lists of books that everyone posted, I realized that I am picture book challenged. What I mean is that there are SO many books out there that I am not familiar with, and here I thought my library was HUGE and I had SO many books (3,000+ to be exact). After spending an hour finding new friends to follow and expanding my Amazon wishlist I have come up with my Top 5 Must Have Picture books. Drum roll please....

The Teacher Wife


These are just a small handful of books that are my MUST HAVES. I have put some of these books on my other lists (throughout my blog) but if they are your favorites, how can you possibly leave them off? I hope I have listed something new for you to find and fall in love with, or an old classic that you forgot about. Either way, happy reading!

    1. Hi Barbara,
      Yes it was really hard to pick. My choices were the ones that when I thought of them they brought a smile to my face, how could you go wrong with that?

  6. This is a great blog, lots of good info, glad I found you. You will love Little Beauty by Anthony Browne. I have all of his books they are amazing. I use most of them when I am teaching questioning and inferring cause you really need to read between the lines with him. Hope you like him too.
