I became a regular follower of Betsy Bird's SLJ blog A Fuse 8 Production back when she did the original 100 picture books and chapter books polls. I was pretty excited when she decided to redo them because it meant I would be able to submit my own choices this time. Little did I know how hard it would be. Not so much the first five or so, but those last few were next to impossible. There are simply too many wonderful books. The picture book poll was a little easier for me because I don't have as vast an experience with picture books. The only factor in determining what went on my list was the love I have for the books. I'm really interested in seeing which ones make the final Top 100 when the new results start posting. In the meantime here are my choices:
This not the order I listed them in for the official poll. Anyone want to guess which got the top spot?
What is your favorite picture book of all time?
