Picture Books

This family loves books.  Big books, little books, picture books, story books.  Books that rhyme books that talk and books that sing.  We've been fans of Todd Parr  for years.  The illustrations are colorful and full of simple whimsy.  The prose is short but packs a powerful message.  

Recently, I entered a contest at Singlemommyhood.com.  I won three autographed books by Todd.  They are the gems of our (overstuffed) book case.
