Today’s Picture Book Favorites

by Stacey

Katherine and I found quite a few new picture books to love.

Here they are: 22521973

Last Stop on Market Street written by Matt De La Pena & illustrated by Christian Robinson. This book received a ton of pre-release  press and it was worth every word. This book is a wonderful lesson in celebrating the good in the world.


I’m My Own Dog by David Ezra Stein tells the story of a dog who thinks he is doing just fine on his own until he finds an owner to love.


Dangerous by Tim Warnes is the story of a small mole who labels everything he sees. At first, an alligator is dangerous but over time he learns that what once appears scary can actually be quite friendly. This book has a great message along with an amazing vocabulary lesson.


The Bear Ate Your Sandwich by Julia Sarcone-Roach tells the comical tale of tricky canine who may or may  not have eaten a sandwich.


Duck in the Fridge by Jeff Mack. I think that Jeff Mack is my new picture book crush. I love this hilarious tale that celebrates both humor and books.



  1. I’ve read and enjoyed I’m My Own Dog but haven’t heard of the others… time for a trip to the library!  Thanks Stacey.

      There are some good ones here for sure! I think you’ll get a giggle out of Duck in the Fridge, knowing that your son likes to laugh! 

  2. I’m really looking forward to Last Stop on Market Street. I’ve only read I’m My Own Dog, the others look fun, too.

      There are some fun ones here. And I wasn’t sure when I went in to Last Stop on Market Street because it had gotten so much hype but it was a great book!

    I love all of your posts Stacy, but your posts on picture books always get me into the library and book store again. I realize how short the picture book time is and I want to make the most of it.  

    • Stacey says:

      I’m so glad that these posts get you and your guys reading! And remember that I still read picture books to my eleven year old (shh… don’t tell anyone!) so your time might be a bit longer than you think!

  4. The only one we’ve read from this list is Duck in the Fridge (and it made my kids laugh out loud). I’m excited to check out the others!

  5. Stacey says:

    Wasn’t Duck in the Fridge great? I’m My Own Dog might get an out loud laugh too!
