Favorite Holiday Picture Books

We asked our readers to share some of their all-time favorite picture books to read during the holiday season and loved reading all their responses. We thought you might like to see the list too. There are some I remember fondly from my childhood as well as some I don't think I've ever seen! Nothing gets me quite in the holiday spirit than snuggling up and sharing festive picture books with my family. Take a look at this wonderful list and let us know your own favorites in the comments below. Happy Holidays to all! READ MORE

Picture Book Puzzler: A Week with Willi Worm

Sometimes an author's manuscript has to go through a whole lot of changes before an editor agrees to publish the book. Main characters may change or even be removed completely! Do you know what bestselling picture book was originally titled "A Week with Willi Worm" when the author initially submitted it to his/her editor? Put your guesses in the comments below and I'll be back at the end of the week with the answer!   READ MORE

Picture Book Puzzler: Over the Rainbow

In March we start looking for early signs of spring. The first flowers in the garden, green buds on trees, the return of songbirds and, of course, rainy days. Grey, rainy days can still bring the chance for bursts of bright color -- seen in children's raincoats and galoshes, cheerful umbrellas, and if you're lucky, a rainbow in the sky. This week's puzzler is filled with images from picture books of rainbows. Can you name each book? Put your guesses in the comments below and I'll be back at the end of the week with the answers.

Picture Book Puzzler: March Comes in Like a Lion...

Happy March! After a pretty mild winter here in New England, March came in with a delightful snowstorm. Mother Nature's way of reminding us that winter isn't over until she says it's over! There's a common saying that March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb, so for this week's puzzler, we have images of lions and lambs. Can you name each picture book correctly? Put your guesses in the comments below and I'll be back at the end of the week with the answers. READ MORE

Picture Book Puzzler: It Ain't Easy Being Green

We're close to spring. I can feel it. This may very well be the most mild winter I've ever experienced. It's not even March and already I can see little bits of green poking up in my flower gardens as my daffodils and tulips emerge. This has put me in a mood for the color green! So, for this week's puzzler, I've collected ten green covers of popular picture books. Can you name each book from the small glimpse of its cover? Put your guesses in the comments below and I'll be back at the end of the week with the answers. Think spring! READ MORE
