Linda (lindajane) Crispin: The Pig Who Had It All by Ted Dewan. Because, let's face it, the best toy IS a cardboard box ......

I love this book and have used it successfully during many a story time group!

Perhaps we can find a picture book form of Pinocchio?

ABC (mary6543) | 341 comments Toys Go Out: Being the Adventures of a Knowledgeable Stingray, a Toughy Little Buffalo, and Someone Called Plastic is not a picture book. It is a chapter book.

We read and liked Raggedy Ann Stories but again it is not really a picture book. (I think. I read it on kindle.)

Yes, this way each member gets to vote for five books they want to read, as opposed to only one :-) It's a bit more complicated, but I think it allows a little better representation.

By the way, it's great seeing some newer members getting involved this month. Welcome!

Kirei, thanks for the correction. I did a quick search in my "read" list, saw the book cover, and remembered that we liked it. I didn't remember that it was a chapter book, but could've easily figured it out by the number of pages!

This thread now becomes a "MASTER LIST AND GENERAL DISCUSSION" where members can post about other picture books (not part of our official six) featuring TOYS :-)
