Top Ten Picture Books

After reading this post over at the Seattle Post Intelligencer blog, I decided to make my own list of top ten picture books. My criteria range from my own personal favorites to those that I love to use in writing workshop.

Top Ten (in no particular order)

Nothing Ever Happens On 90th Street by Roni Schotter and Krysten Brooker
