Top 5 Canadian Picture Books

Today, I’m excited to be sharing over at Mother Daughter Book Reviews, about one of my favourite things: Books! Here is a little preview of my post, click on over to their site to get the full version!

My children, like their mama, are confessed book lovers. We are routinely walking the line for the maximum number of books our library allows to be checked out (100). We enjoy books of all types: fiction, non-fiction, fairy tales, history, mythology, classics, readers and novels. We especially love picture books, and there many that we have enjoyed over and over again. As a Canadian, I’m always a little bit pleased when I discover that one of the books that we love is also Canadian. The books I’m sharing with you today are among those Canadian books we have checked out over and over again or belong to our personal collection. These are books that my children love, and that I love to read with them! [READ MORE]

    We love books, too. We are running out of places to put them and I think we are going to have to start passing on our picture books to others now that my kids are 11 and 16 🙂

    I love Something from Nothing! I haven’t read a couple of these…time to remedy that! One of my favourite Canadian picture book authors is Ian Wallace (Boy of the Deeps, Very Last First Time, A Winter’s Tale, and The Sparrow’s Song are some of his best…that I’ve seen, anyway)

      I’ll have to check out his books! I vaguely remember Very Last First Time – I think I read it with my oldest three years ago when we did Come Sit By Me. My middle gal is in “kinder” this year so we’re due to get into that curriculum again!

    Visiting from the Kid Lit Blog Hop! I have to confess I haven’t read any of these but definitely will now! And I can totally relate to always being at the limit of how many books you can check out – we have to shuffle our books around every time we check out, depending on who has a few spaces left on their card!

      I’m glad I’m not the only one! I can’t count the times I’ve heard parents at the library telling their kids they can only chose one or two books and to leave some for the other kids…and then I hide my bulging library bag!
