I thought I’d start a thread on the subject, considering the Picture Book Palooza is starting tomorrow! (I never knew what that word was before. :lol: )
Neologism…wow, that makes “made-up word” sound so profound.
By picture books do you mean kids’ books that are long on pictures, short on text? Is there an exact definition or does it matter?
When Jessie Came Across the Sea by Amy Hest has been one of my favourites for a long time, and Trina Schart-Hyman’s (can’t remember how to spell her last name) illustrations for Snow White. (Hate the fairy tale, love the illustrations. )
I have had enough The Little Engine that Could and Are You My Mother? to last my lifetime thrice over, thanks very much.^^
Um, basically short stories with a good amount of pictures, I guess.
I like “Are You My Mother?”
Bill Peet’s books; Peter Spier’s books; James Stevenson’s books; the Flicka, Ricka, Dicka and Snip, Snap, Snurr books…Can’t remember any others. Someday I’m going to sit in the sunroom and add some of them to Goodreads just for the sake of it.
Oh, and I loved Richard Scarry when I was young.
*doesn’t like Are You My Mother?, the Mousekin books, or Anno*
We have a lot of picture books! We used to collect ‘em, cause I loved looking at picture books before I read real books.
Somebody made it up.
Oh yes, I liked Richard Scarry in my younger days also.
Alyosha, you’ve turned blue! *points to username* Congratulations!
The Picture Book Palooza starts today!
*wonders what the blue means*
Another picture book I remember The Five Chinese Brothers.
I believe it means she hit a certain number of posts.
Has anyone else read the “If You Give A Mouse A Cookie” books?
I don’t know why her name is blue. It doesn’t seem to be related to the number of posts.
I love those books! My brothers don’t seem to find them amusing though.
The other day we were at a book store and we saw a new one! If You Give A Cat A Cupcake.
*only kinda likes the mouse one*
Owan! :o *shocked gasp*
But…but…but! Owan, I LOVE those books!!!
*shakes fist at her for being so picky*
