…according to me anyway!
Oh me, oh my how I wish I was a clever as the authors and illustrators of the books below! How cleverly they manage to capture the attention of children and adults alike! I liken good picture books for young children to ‘The Simpsons’ – written on two levels – level one for the children, and then level two for the adults with a whole other layer of complexity and/or humour. The books below are absolute MUST HAVES in your home and in libraries around the country. They are, as far as I’m concerned, the best of the best in early childhood books and you will never, ever regret spending money on them. Picture books are expensive and I’m well aware of this. However they are an investment and you are far better off spending $30 on one PERFECT picture book, then purchasing several $5 ones from a remainders bin or large department store – trust me; I’m a librarian and librarians always speak the truth!
