The "Show Us Your Life" topic this week at Kelly's Korner is favorite books. Obviously, I couldn't resist contributing a few favorites in our home. Here are some of our "ripped pages books," a sure sign of a book that has been well-loved and read often. Honestly, this is just a start...there are so many more that I could have included. What books would you include in the "ripped pages" category?
Clockwise from top:
Chugga-Chugga Choo-Choo by Kevin Lewis
Olivia by Ian Falconer
The Monster at the end of this Book by Jon Stone and Michael Smollin
Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus by Mo Willems
Corduroy by Don Freeman
Mary Engelbreit's Mother Goose
I'm Dirty by Kate and Jim McMullan
By the way, if you are looking for "the best of the best," here are a couple of stellar book lists, provided by Fuse #8 of the School Library Journal. (A Fuse #8 Production is a great blog to follow if you want to be in the know about new children's book releases).
