10 Best Picture Books: 12/02/10

10 Best Picture Books for 2010

It's the last month of the year and the time when book blogs start posting top ten lists. Usually I wait until the very end but this year I plan to spread the lists out a little more.

Our choices weren't all published in 2010 but they are readily available. Most of then we read via our local library. I put these books on the list because they appealed to both my daughter and son. They are best suited for ages 3 to 8.

10: Yoko's Paper Cranes by Rosemary Wells (2001)

9. Jin Jin the Dragon by Grace Chang (2008)

8. One Yellow Lion by Matthew Van Fleet (1992)

7. Why I Will Never Ever Ever Ever Have Enough Time to Read This Book by Remy Charlip (2000)

6. Two Little Trains by Margaret Wise Brown and Lee Dillion (2003)

5. The Curious Garden by Peter Brown (2009)

4. Jeremy Draws a Monster by Peter McCarty (2009)

3. Is there a monster over there? by Sally O Lee (2010)

2. The Book That Eats People by John Perry (2009)

1. Sugar Would Not Eat It by Emily Jenkins and Giselle Potter (2009)
