100 Picture Books You Should Know
A few years ago, the New York Public Library created a list called "100 Picture Books Everyone Should Know". (this is a clickable link) Think of it as a greatest hits list. You will see many of the books that are favorites from our storytimes. "Caps for Sale" and "The Story of Ferdinand", which I talked about in an earlier post are on the list, along with "Goodnight Moon", by Margaret Wise Brown, "Where the Wild Things Are", by Maurice Sendak, and "Strega Nona", by Tomie DePaola. But also note newer titles like, "My Friend Rabbit", by Eric Rohmann and "I Kissed the Baby", by Mary Murphy. Wonderful books, each and every one of them.
