Be a Book Buddy

School Library Journal posted the Top 100 Picture Book Poll of 2009. (Thank you SLJ!) From that fabulous list, I have created some more fun for all of us! Here's the scoop:
Below is a list of the top 30 Picture Books according to School Library Journal. Copy and paste this post and create a post of your own with it. Then, go back and highlight the books you and your children have read! After you post, leave a comment at The Bookworm's Booklist to let me and others know that your post is up. I can't wait to see who's read what! I have highlighted the books we've read in greenAnd I just placed the ones we haven't discovered yet on hold at the library.

Mo Willems' books are hilarious! My kids, who are waaaaay too old for this genre crack up when they read them to the littles!

Wow, you've read a lot!
"In the Night Kitchen" is a favourite in our house. It's a bit weird, but the illustrations are fantastic!
