Musing Mondays2Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about picture books.

Do you have a favourite picture book, either from your own childhood, or reading to you children?

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your opinion in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks.

 

One of the little girls I babysit, my cousins three year old daughter Kaitlyn, is a budding book worm. I walk in the door and she comes toddling out with books under her arms, wanting to be read to. I don’t mean that she comes out with one book, or even two – no, she brings out a pile. As such, I’ve been reading more picture books over the past six months than I can ever remember having read before.

My #1 favourite picture book is still Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are (was very excited to see the movie, and yes I did enjoy it). But it’s not my only favourite. I decided to go cover gathering…

My son loves books just like me, he is nearly two and if you say to him go and get a book to read he will run excited to his room and get one and run back and once that one is read he will repeat until you have read ALL of his books! and if you dare to say no just one a temper tantrum will beon the cards! i love reading childrens books and looking at all the pictures.

Alison said...

I don't know about childhood, but there's a recent picture book that delighted me.

My favorite picture book was The Little Engine that Could, the original classic version that was out in the 1960's.
