Favorite Picture Books Round-up

What were your favorite picture books when you were growing up? I recently posted this question and got many wonderful responses. Here's where to find them:

Kristen at 2nd Gen Librarian talks about The Lorax, Bears in the Night, The Big Orange Splot, Blueberries for Sal, and The Friendly Beasts.

Stacy at Booktopia mentions Madeline, The Mitten and Garbage Delight.

Franki at A Year of Reading discusses the books she saved from childhood including Sad Day, Glad Day, Two New Babies, Time For a Rhyme, A Present for the Princess, The Princess and the Pea, Jiggers, The Witch Next Door, Where the Wild Things Are and more.

Cheryl Rainfield came up with a long and wonderful list including The Story of Ferdinand, The Monster at the End of This Book, Hide and Seek with Lovable Furry Old Grover, Green Eggs and Ham, Horton Hatches the Egg, Ten Apples Up on Top!, The Lorax, The Cat in the Hat.... and many, many more.

Becky at Reading With Becky talks about Umbrella, Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb, Are You My Mother?, Blueberries For Sal, Noisy Nora and Just For You.

Jen at Jen Robinson's Book Page says she doesn't really remember her favorite picture books as a child, but one that stands out is the Digging-ist Dog.

See the comments section of my original post for even more great childhood favorites.

Did I miss your post? Let me know so I can add it to the list.
