Some of my Favorite Picture Books

I'm always looking for good pictures books, but have a hard time finding many.  Here are some I highly recommend.

If you have a chance read Let's Do Nothing! by Tony Fucile. The story is great and his illustrations are even better. Best friends Frankie and Sal decide to do ... nothing, since they've done all there is to do. The plan is to sit perfectly still, no moving, no talking. And how does that go? Definitely a book worth looking at.

And while you're checking out picture books, give this one a try: The Plot Chickens by Mary Jane and Herm Auch.  Henrietta decides to write a book so she enlists the help of her three aunties. When Henrietta publishes her story, the critics say she's laid an egg! What will she do now?

Memoirs of a Goldfish by Scillian, Devin and Tim Bowers is another book to take a look at. In this simple diary of a goldfish you will have to chuckle. It starts with the boring life of a fish who has the bowl to himself. ..until one day things begin to change.

And lastly, I would highly recommend Three Hens and a Peacock by Lester Laminack. The Tuckers' farm is a peaceful place. The animals all have jobs and no one complains. That is, until a peacock suddenly falls off the back of a passing truck.

If you have any favorite picture books, I'd be interested in hearing what they are.
