So many books to choose from! Today the three books I choose are "Something from Nothing" by Phoebe Gilman, "Imagine a Day" by Sarah L. Thomson, and "Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus" by Mo Willems.
I love the repetition in "Something from Nothing" and having the children guess what the Grandpa is going to make next. The pictures are lovely and complex, and there is a whole second story going on in pictures among the mice beneath the floor boards.
Even preschoolers can get involved in "Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus". They love the chance to have the power to say "no" as the pigeon pleads to be allowed to drive the bus. Actually all books by Mo Willems should be in school libraries.
Finally a brand new favorite of mine is "Imagine a day" by Sarah L. Thomson. Children of all ages (this includes adults" crowd closer to look at the pictures and try to decide what is reality, and what is imagined
Ask me this same question tomorrow and I might choose three different books!
