PBH Top Ten Board Books


They are chewed, ripped and warped. Bindings are broken. Pages are stuck together. A few might even be a little bit moldy. They are, in no particular order…

The Picture Book House’s Top Ten(ish) Board Books (nighttime board books excluded):

1. Jamberry, Bruce Degen

2. Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You? Dr. Suess

3. Moo, Baa, La La La!, Sandra Boyton

4. Barnyard Dance, Sandra Boyton

5. More More More Said the Baby, Vera B. Williams

6. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, Bill Martin Jr./ John Archambault

7. Ten, Nine, Eight, Molly Bang

8. Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See, Bill Martin Jr./Eric Carle

9. The Ear Book, Al Perkins/Henry Payne

10. Happy Baby, Sad Baby, Leslie Patricelli

11. Going on a Bear Hunt, Michael Rosen/Helen Roxenbury

More about how each came to it’s chewed, ripped, warped, broken-binding, sticky-paged-state as soon as our croup-turned-double ear infection heals and we get some sleep.

    It’s so hard to narrow it down to 10, isn’t it? We definitely have some of those on our favorites list. I saw you on Google + and wanted to drop by and say hello. I’m a new follower via email and Twitter. 🙂
