Question of the Week: What are some of your favorite picture books - either current ones or ones from your childhood?
Woo! Favourite Picture books. I loved books when I was really young as well, so I can still remember my favourites. And now that I am teaching Kindergarten and Elementary School in Japan, I am looking through books again that I can use in the classroom to help teach English.
I got two. The first is The Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown
My other favourite book should be rather obvious in a way. Any child named Sam was read this book over and over again:
My father would call me Sam-I-Am and in fact still does sometimes to this day. As an adult I've grown to appreciate the message of this book as well. The simple one. The one about how sometimes you need to try something even if it looks disgusting before deciding if you like it or not.
