Top Ten Tuesday: Picture Books I’m Thankful For


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is a Thanksgiving freebie.

I wasn’t a book lover when I was a kid, but there are a few picture books that I remember my parents and teachers reading to me over and over. These were my childhood favorites.





What was your favorite picture book as a kid?

  6. Velveteen Rabbit, Where the Wild Things Are, and Cordurory for sure! Others that pop to mind are Lyle, Lyle Crocodile; Harry the Dirty Dog, Blueberries for Sal, Madeline, Angus and the Ducks, Leo the Late Bloomer, and an Arthur Rackham illustrated book of stories.

    Ahem, I just made my top ten list in your comments section. My bad!

  8. I love this list! What a blast from the past! I think The Very Hungry Caterpillar was the first signed book I ever owned. I still have it!

  9. I loved Clifford growing up -- my second grade teacher actually dressed up as the "big red dog" and read books to students, it was such a fun idea. Great top ten!

I do a happy dance every time I get a comment. (You should be grateful that you’re not around to witness this dance. It’s truly horrifying.) Leave a link to your blog so I can visit you.
