Book List: My Picture Book Recommends

Well, another six months have passed, which means it is once again time for the Barnes & Noble Educator Reception! If you're a pre-k through 12 teacher, librarian, or homeschooler, then you need to be at our reception at the Barnes & Noble in Orem at 6:00 TONIGHT! Carol Lynch Williams will be our guest speaker, discussing ways to inspire kids to read and write.

And most exciting about the Educator Reception is the fact that I get to update my recommend list! Today I'm sharing my favorite picture books of late. These are all books that you absolutely have to check out, because they're all amazing in one way or another.

Palazzo Inverso by D. B. Johnson
Actual Size by Steve Jenkins
Pingo by Brandon Mull
Birdie’s Big Girl Shoes by Sujean Rim
Dinotrux by Chris Gall
Cat the Cat by Mo Willems
I Need My Monster by Amanda Noll
Just Me and 6,000 Rats: A Tale of Conjunctions by Rick Walton
Bad Kitty by Nick Bruel

P.S. And looking back at my list from six months ago, did I call it or did I call it on "The Lion and the Mouse?" I so called it. Palazzo Inverso is definitely one of my top contenders for next year's Caldecott, and the year's barely even started!
