    Thanks for the list of picture books.

    I can relate to your blog although my preschoolers arent actually mine (there are grand-kids). Beginning in June, I’ll have four; the oldest will be three and the youngest will be 9 months.

    I’m adding you as a friend.

    I love children’s picture books too. Many of those you have listed are ones we love too. We also like Inside Mouse, Outside Mouse by Lindsey Barrett George, books by Patricia Polacco, and my kids all loved The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere by Longfellow. Also my son loved St. George and The DRagon adapted by Margaret Hodges.
