Top 100 Picture Books

Back in March, super-blogger, Fuse #8, conducted a poll of her readers’ all-time favorite picture books. Since the beginning of this month, she’s been revealing the Top 100 Picture Books based on poll results.

I like the Fuse #8 blog in general, but I’m especially enjoying this series of posts–the list of books and Fuse’s comments on them. As someone who aspires to write picture books, it is my goal to read these 100 picture books this summer while I have more access to not-so-local libraries. I will re-read the ones I’ve already read. For two of the past three years, I’ve set and met the goal of reading 100 pbs, so I think the real challenge will be finding these particular ones.

Anywho, if you’ve ever wished for a list of possible gift books for the kids in your life, this is going to be a good one. When she’s finished posting results, Fuse #8 will provide a printable list of titles for us. Yesterday, she posted book #19. At the bottom of the post are links to all the earlier posts. Books ranking from 100 – 31 are posted in 10-title chunks, and the top 30 are posted individually.

Anyone care to join me in the challenge to read these books this summer?
