2010 Picture Book Favorites

While awaiting next month's big award announcements from ALSC, here are my favorite picture books of 2010.

My top five, linked to my reviews:
(I can't really decide on an order - they're all so different!)

  • Underwood, Deborah.2010. The Quiet Book. Ill. by Renata Liwska. Boston: Houghton Mifflin.
  • Frazee, Marla. 2010. The Boss Baby. New York: Beach Lane
  • .Raschka, Chris. 2010. Little Black Crow. New York: Atheneum.
  • Thomson, Bill. 2010. Chalk. Tarrytown, NY: Marshall Cavendish.
  • Henkes, Kevin. 2010. My Garden. New York:  Greenwillow.
Other great 2010 titles ...

 Plus Pecan Pie Baby, Wanted: The Perfect Pet, The Boy and the Moon, Chicken Big, and Say Hello.

 Great books - all of them!

(I doubt that I can repeat my luck, especially since I can't decide on a favorite, but I did choose last year's winner correctly!)  In any case, I wish continued success to the authors and illustrators of all of my favorites!

  1. I like your favorites list, thanks! One of my favorites for 2010 is an Elizabeth Hoadley book called The Thanksgiving Coat. It's illustrated by her 5-year old daughter and is great in teaching values and beliefs that every kid should be taught.
