Picture Books!! I love em so. You know you do too!

My very favorite picture book is and will always be...drumroll please....... Panda Cake by Rosalie Seidler. Nobody ever seems to know this book, but I love it. Have you ever used money for something fun instead of what it was intended for? Be honest now.

Really, I want to hear what your favorite picture book is.



  1. ooooh, too many! never tease a weasel, the polar express, tikki tikki tembo, and to think that I saw it on mulberry street...and the list goes on and on and on...

  2. Let's see if that tutorial worked on how to post a comment. Some favorite picture books of mine would be Green Eggs and Ham, The Foot Book and The Summer People. And yes you always looked forward to getting the Book Its, it was like a party every month when Daddy and I would take 6 or 7 kids to Pizza Hut to redeem them. They made their money off the video games, juke box and cokes. What fun!

  3. Oh, the memories of Book-it! Bribery works I guess. lol

  4. Gerald McBoing Boing. Yup. The message could go either way--be yourself and people will come around, or make lots of money and be famous and all of sudden you have friends.

    Can't forget Alexander and the totally f***ed up day or something like that.

  5. I removed a post because of a typo. Now it says I removed a post. Oh well...

    More Spaghetti I Say
    The Scrawny Tawny Lion
    Yertle the Turtle
    The Big Brag

  6. I am writing all of these down! So excited. Amanda-I see a little golden book on your list. I love them. Of course I want to borrow it. I can't wait to hear James Earl Jones. Chris-I have never heard of Gerald McBoing Boing. Also, it's Alexander and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day. But your description works too. tee hee

  7. I fixed your removed comment, but now your new comment refers to nothing.
