Challenge Wrap-Up: I Love Picture Books 2015

Many thanks to Gina @ Book Dragon's Lair for hosting the 2015 I Love Picture Books Reading Challenge. I do love picture books, and I loved this challenge. I set myself a goal of twelve books, and didn't have any trouble at all reaching that goal. Here's what I read:
  1. Corduroy. Don Freeman. 1948 / 32 pages
  2. The Little House. Virginia Lee Burton. 1942 / 40 pages / 1943 Caldecott Medal
  3. Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel. Virginia Lee Burton. 1938 / 56 pages 
  4. Katy and the Big Snow. Virginia Lee Burton. 1943 / 40 pages
  5. A Camping Spree with Mr. Magee. Chris Van Dusen. 2003 / 36 pages
  6. Stella and Charlie, Friends Forever. Bernadette Peters; illus. by Liz Murphy. 2015 / 40 pages
  7. Little Bird, Be Quiet! Kirsten Hall; illus. by Sabina Gibson. 2015 / 36 pages
  8. Anatole. Eve Titus; illus. by Paul Galdone. 1956 / 40 pages / 1957 Caldecott Honor Book
  9. Harry the Dirty Dog. Gene Zion; illus. by Margaret Bloy Graham. 1956 / 32 pages
  10. Harry and the Lady Next Door. Gene Zion; illus. by Margaret Bloy Graham. 1960 / 64 pages
  11. One Morning in Maine. Robert McCloskey. 1952 / 62 pages / 1953 Caldecott Honor Book
  12. The Bees (Down in the Garden #1). DC Swain; illus. by Anna Bonita. 2015 / 24 pages
For 2016, Gina has passed the challenge hosting duties over to Bea's Book Nook. Haven't signed up yet, but I'm very tempted -- there are still lots of picture books I'd love to read.

Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
