This quote is straight from his website
ook"Picture books are often seen as literary baby food, the stuff we feed children until they have the teeth to eat real food. They are the first books that children fall in love with, that turn children into lifetime readers. Lifetime readers become lifetime learners. Lifetime learners become lifetime contributors."
#1 I See A Monster by Daniel J. Mahoney (My kiddos love the mirror at the very end. Such a cute little rhyming story.)#2 The Napping House by Audrey and Don Wood (Great funny story)
#3 Giggle & Grow Baby Face by Piggie Toe Press (My kids love to look at the faces of the kids in this book, over and over.)
#5 How Do I Love You by P.K. Halliman (Very Sweet story.)
#7 Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You? by Dr. Seuss (This book is by far my favorite board book. In fact our copy has been used and eaten on so much that it is now held together by duck tape.)#8 Good Morning, Good Night! by Melanie Mitchell (My kids love to feel the animals and help tuck the little girl in at the end of the story.)#9 Good Night, Sweet Butterflies by Dawn Bentley, Heather Cahoon, & Melanie Gerth (My kids love to feel each butterfly and we talk about colors.)#10 The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle (Classic) Now for the second part of my post. There is a very cute girl named Erin Shakespeare who put together the 2011 Southern Utah Writing Conference with Rick Walton and Mette Ivie Harrison. She has a fun event planned that she wanted to get the word out coming up in a few weeks. So for all of you aspiring writers, go and check out her blog here. It looks like a lot of fun and a good way to meet new people and get new ideas brewing for your books.
