The Great Picture Book Culling: Day 16

>> Saturday, January 17, 2009

We are now officially more than halfway through Jo's read-a-thon month. So let's get right to the books, shall we?

Jo's favorite of the night was Max & Pinky: Best Buds by Maxwell Eaton III. This is my favorite Max & Pinky book too. And this is my absolute favorite page.When Jo was younger, every time we got to this page she would point and say, "Look! He's a dirty rotten liar! Ha ha ha ha ha!" Now she just laughs and laughs. I love it when we're reading a familiar book and she starts giggling in anticipation of turning to a favorite page.

Alan's favorite of the night (mine too) was Knuffle Bunny Too by Mo Willems. This is a sequel to the equally fabulous Knuffle Bunny and I love, love, love this little scene where the two girls argue over the pronounciation of Knuffle. I can only imagine how many letters Mo Willems has received asking him which is the right way to say it. The answer is here - if you're curious.
I'm a big fan of all of Mo Willems's books but I especially love the art in the Knuffle Bunny books - a terrific combination of photography and drawings.

Jo also read Max by Bob Graham - a sweet story about a superhero baby who grows to become a superhero boy who protects small animals.

Read-a-thon status so far: 60 books read
Books culled so far: 11
