This is the 3rd year that Cathy from Reflect & Refine: Building a Learning Community and Mandy from Enjoy and Embrace Learning are hosting the Picture Book 10 for 10 event (#pb10for10 ) on August 10, 2012. I have no idea how I missed this the past two years considering my love for picture books. However, I am joining in this year.
Here is my list of 10 picture books for the 10 for 10 event...
The titles that I can read from memory because I read them so many times when I was first teaching preschool and kindergarten:
Jesse Bear, What Will You Wear? by Nancy White Carlstrom; Illustrated by Bruce Degen
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin, John Archambault; Illustrated by Lois Ehlert
The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything by Linda Williams; Illustrated by Megan Lloyd
Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See? by Bill Martin Jr.; Illustrated by Eric Carle
The book that reminds me of who I would love to become when I "grow" up...
