Top 100... I mean, Top 3 Picture Books

Fuse #8 has posted the first ten books in her list of the Top 100 Picture Books as voted on by readers. Although I didn't get around to submitting my picks, today's 10 inspired me to chime in because book #94 on the list, The Gardener by Sarah Stewart and David Small, would certainly be in my Top 3 books. It's perfect.

The other 2 would be The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats and Harvey Slumfenburger's Christmas Present by John Burningham which are also, in my opinion, perfect picture books.

Can't wait to see the rest of the list.

Agreed! The Gardener IS perfect! Of course The Snowy Day is right up there, too...And pretty much anything John Burningham makes me happy, though I have to admit I've never read Harvey Slumfenburger's Christmas Present~~Can't wait to find that one now! I like your picture book taste sir :)

I thank you, ma'am. Judging from your wonderful work, I'd reckon we have a lot of the same influences. Get Harvey Slumfenburger and read it from page one on. The end packs a punch.

Will definitely do!
