Favorite Picture Books of 2007

One of my favorite blogs to visit is "A Fuse #8 Production", written by Elizabeth Bird. Ms. Bird is a Children's Librarian for the New York Public Library, and her blog is part of the School Library Journal website. If you'd like to read her blog, just go to http://www.slj.com/ and look under the "blogs" section for a link to her blog. She provides lots of book reviews, "best of" lists, and general knowledge about the field of Children's Literature.
In a recent post she listed her favorite books of 2007. I think she has very good taste in books, so I thought I'd share part of the picture book portion of her list with you. My favorite on this list is The Chicken Chasing Queen of Lamar County. What a fun book! If you'd like to place a hold on any of these books just click on the title.
