Best in Children's Books - Part 1

Posted by PicasaThese Best in Children's Books compilations from the late 1950's are so cool.  Wouldn't it be neat if they did a modern-day version?  What authors/illustrators/titles would be in your compilation of the last 10 years or so?  I would include Mo Willems, Todd Parr, one of the Ladybug Girl titles, a Charlie and Lola book, Oliver Jeffers, Sandra Boynton, Marc Boutavant, Julie Morstad, a Skippyjon Jones book, Kevin Henkes, etc...  who am I leaving out??


  1. Olivia! Also David Shannon, Lane Smith, Bob Shea, stuff illustrated by LeUyen Pham and Jen Corace...

    1. Danzel, I totally knew you were going to say Olivia! :) Lane Smith is a great choice too. And yes, Jen Corace's Little Pea needs to be included!
