Must Have Picture Books {Linky}

My daughter claims it's a sickness (that we, but I totally disagree...our love for picture books is a natural, necessary part of this be able to pass on this love to our students! (Do you think hubby will buy that argument?  I think he has decided that it is easier to pretend that I don't buy I pretend that I don't buy

Anyway, I am linking up with The Teacher Wife to highlight my favourite picture books.  I have already been checking out some of the other lists on the other blogs, and my wish list on Chapters (which was already way over-budget) has grown extensively!
Photobucket are some of my favourite picture books (in no particular order)...

1.  "The Duckling Gets a Cookie" by Mo Willems
BOOK: The Duckling Gets A Cookie!?
I love this pigeon!

2.  "I Love Monkey" by Suzanne Kaufman
We had a fun experience day at school, and I chose some crafts to do with monekys...and then...I found...this book!

3.  "The Hiccupotamus" by Aaron Zenz
The Hiccupotamus
This one just makes me giggle...especially when I had to read it out loud to hubby!  lol

4. "Guji-Guji" by Chih-Yuan Chen
Product Details
I loved this book, from the first time I found it in a little book store in England, while accompanying my dad on a medical trip (and yes, even while traveling, I can smell out books!).  I just had to read it to my students as soon as I returned from my trip!

5. "Mary Had a Little Lamp" by Jach Lechner
Product Details
This is one of those cute stories that I like to read/sing with some of my music classes.

6. "The Lorax" by Dr. Seuss
A classic, but great story about protecting our planet!

7. "The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore" by William Joyce
Product Details
This is one of my newest purchases, but it is such a beautiful book!  And of course, I had to find a copy of the Academy Award winning short film that it inspired.

Ok...I could go on, and on, and on...and on...but maybe I will stop at lucky seven!

I was going to put "Mary Had a Little Lamp" on my list too... Love that story!

And I have not heard of the fantastic, flying books. Maybe I should add that to my list? ;)

Congrats on the new blog!
