I wish I could come on down to your house and be read to with all those 20 pounds of PB titles!! You're very lucky you have the time to read so much of the current literature in our field!

Wow, and I thought I read a lot of picture books! These are great lists, Ame. Lots of fun titles to seek out.

I'm definitely out of the loop on reading picture books lately. We got into an after-dinner wildlife-hunt grove on vacation and that replaced a lot of storytime. A trip to the library is on for this week!

Speaking of Cynthia Rylant, we've been enjoying the "Mr. Putter and Tabby" series.

Jeanne, you're welcome anytime! Just don't mind the kid/pet menagerie or the mess (the latter being one of the reasons I can read so much, and the former being one of the reasons for the latter!).

(laughing) Tara, you DO read a lot of picture books! We're just lucky to have such a great library (yay, Mercer County Main Branch!) so close by. And the wildlife-hunt sounds fun! Maybe I'll ask for submissions for a PB hunt! Mr. Putter and Tabby are a fave in our house, too! Who would've thought that the mild adventures of an older gentleman and his housecat would make such a great series? But, they do. Read on!
