I realize I haven’t done any picture book roundups this year, so here’s the first. I have to do these posts more frequently now, as about 60% of the books I acquire are picture books. My logic (whacked, I know, but it makes perfect sense to me) behind this is that because they’re picture books with not much text, I’m technically not adding to my astronomic TBR. Of course that kind of reasoning rebounds on me because at the rate I’m acquiring them, they take up a lot of space. I do like creating these kinds of problems for myself!
Anyway, in an attempt to get these books moving from my holding area (downstairs — to be read, to be weeded out, to be covered, etc) to my library shelves (upstairs) here’s today’s picture book roundup, mainly animal books. I’m very picky with animal stories, but the clever ones are usually in picture books, so I don’t mind getting a whole bunch of them.
Included in this roundup are Too Many Cooks; Sagwa the Siamese Cat; The Owl and the Pussycat; Stellaluna; The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes; Mind your Manners BB Wolf; Dooby Dooby Moo; and Click, Clack, Quackity Quack, books #25-32 for 2011.
