What do picture books mean to you?


November is Picture Book Month.  In my humble opinion, you’re never too old for picture books.  There are picture books about virtually every topic.  Some are funny. Others are quirky. And still others explore serious subjects.  Some picture books are designed for the very young. And some are clearly sophisticated cross-over books that both children and adults can enjoy.  Here’s a super cute video that gives you a little insight into the wonderful range of picture books.

So, what’s your favorite picture book? Is it one of the wildly popular Scaredy Squirrel books, or a classic like Where the Wild Things Are? Or maybe you’re a fan of Mo Wilms’ quirky  Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus.  Or, you might be one of Robert Munsch’s Love You Forever fans who number in the millions. Whatever your taste, there’s a picture book out there waiting to be loved and waiting to be shared.

    My favourite picture book as a child was Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss. My current favourite picture book is Mr. Zinger’s Hat by Cary Fagan – a must read for every writer!
