Papa Mark Ladybug Baby Bug

Ladybug Baby Bug is an adorable children's picture book showing the importance of family love and support. A wonderful easy-reader and bedtime story.


message 2: by Sheri (new)

Sheri Fanny's Dream is a cute picture book by Caralyn Buehner, a version of the Cinderella Story. Published in the 2007-2008 range.

Ronyell I just loved Where the Wild Things Are and most of the books by Henrik Drescher and Rabbit Ears. They were such childhood favorites of mine! I actually have two fan clubs Rabbit Ears Productions Fan Club and Henrik Drescher Fan Club that are dedicated to these books!

Juliette La Surprise du Marche

No one draws and watercolors like Beatrix Potter! I think she is the best. Also, have you seen the movie about her life? Miss Potter? (very good)


message 8: by Alandra (new)

Alandra Kelly Hashway's MAY THE BEST DOG WIN is SUPER cute! :)


message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

I vote for Mikolay and Julia in the Attic by Magda M. Olchawska.


message 10: by Debbie (new)

Debbie I deleted some graphic novels that appeared on the list - 300, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Wolverine: Weapon X, and Batman: Year One. While they may literally be picture books, they don't really belong on a children's book list.


message 11: by Judy (new)

Judy My list isn't really in much of an order. They are all so good. I'm sure there are a few I will want to add later though, when I think of them!


message 12: by Murielle (new)

Murielle Cyr CULLOO #458 isn't a picture book. Can a helpful librarian please remove it from this list.

Thank you

Murielle Cyr (author)


message 13: by Murielle (last edited Jan 16, 2014 06:19PM) (new)

Murielle Cyr Please remove my book, CULLOO, #286, from this list. It is not a picture book and does not belong here. This is now my second request, it was at #458 with my first request and has now climbed.

Thank you
Murielle Cyr (author)


message 14: by Mitchell (new)

Mitchell I really wish this list had a minimum number of ratings of say 500. It would be much easier to keep author spam off. And for us compulsive completists, we could read say the top 100 books withing reading or skipping those. Alternatively, a lot more people would need to vote for a lot more books.
