You will often find me behind a mile high stack of these glorious and captivating volumes as I peruse their pages for the perfect stories for my storytime children as well as my own personal enjoyment.
There is something so quaint and magical about a books filled with stories of talking animals, silly sayings, and whimsical drawings. They bring you back to the days when any dream was possible and all problems could be solved by an ice cream cone or your mother’s soothing voice.
I have pledged to read 24 picture books (level 3) within the year in the an Illustrated Year 2012 Picture Book Challenge.
