* This post was first published in July 2012.
A couple of days ago, I received two mails–one from a blogger friend and another from a reader–both asking for links to the book posts that I’ve cleared out over the years. My friend suggested I put up a list again in case others are interested too, and I thought I should, while I have time!
So here it is, a list of picture books that we’re still loving right now. Some titles like the Peter Sis books are more for me at the moment, but I’m hoping Layla will soon be able to read them and realise how cool they are. (And Z too, eventually!) And for the record, I paid only $2 for some of these books but I think they’re worth the full price. The M. Sasek books and Mordicai Gerstein’s What Charlie Heard are on my “to-buy” list; please feel free to suggest your favourites too!
