Picture Books We Love

Picture Book Puzzler: Spring has Sprung!

Happy Spring! There's one favorite classic children's novel of mine that I re-read every year in the spring. Can you guess what book it is by the quote below? “Is the spring coming?" he said. "What is it like? You don't see it in rooms if you are ill." "It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine, and things pushing up and working under the earth..." What a lovely and perfect way to describe spring. Do you recognize the book? 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: 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
