favorite Picture books

We are book people here. I am looking for some new book reads for this fall.

So what are some of you favorites?

Re: favorite Picture books

Carma Wilson is one of my favorite children's books authors. She writes the Bear Snores On, Bear Feels Scared and Bears Loose Tooth and so on. But those aren't my favs by her. I LOVE The Frog in the Bog, Mr. Murry and Thumpkin, Hogwash, and several others. In fact, I actually bought the first 2 above. Mr, Murry and Thumpkin is probably my favorite. It's out of print and I stalked it for a long time looking for a good copy that wasn't $30.

Another popular one at our house is Too Many Pumpkins by Linda White. My kids really like that one.

We are about to start reading the picture books version of the Little House on the Prairie Series. One is called The Farmer Boy's Birthday or something like that. I'd have to look.

I'll think about some others too and maybe come back with a list.

I'm not a big fan of Jan Brett's writing style but her illustrations are AMAZING and beautiful to look at.

Re: favorite Picture books

I like older kids books like the Little Golden books, and anything with really nice art.

I love Mercer Meyer books (Little Critter is adorable).
My boys like Arthur books, Bernstein Bears books and Clifford books.
Tharen's favorite book is Where the Wild Things Are and Kearnan loves I Love You Stinky Face. Another favorite is Seven Blind Mice and Prayers for a Blueberry Girl. My boys also love Skippy Jon Jones, The Day I Became a Pirate (and Pirates Don't Change Diapers). We don't read a ton of picture books anymore but we still have a collection because the boys can read them on their own now and love looking at the pictures. We will probably keep our favorites forever.
