In honor of #pb10for10, for today’s It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?, I’m going to write another Top 10 list: the Top 10 Picture Books I read in the last week. It was actually a very strong week for picture books. I read over 50 this week, and 16 of them were vying for a spot in my Top 10 for the week.
If you love lists and/or picture books, you might want to check out the whole collection of blog posts for #pb10for10, but be warned: it is very easy to lose a lot of time and money reading these lists!
