What are your favourite children's picture books?



  1. I know and love some of your choices there - others I will have to look and see if they are in the library catalogue. Some of our favourites are the Hairy McClary books and Mr McGee books.

  2. Ooh, some of these I know and some I don't. I'll keep an eye out for you for some of these at the library book sales. :) They often seem to part with books that I consider to be classics. I don't understand it, but I happily take home their "rejects"!
