Paging Through Picture Books: Sleep Tight Farm (2016), Egg (2017), North South East West (2017), XO, Ox (2017)
This batch of picture books fulfills four categories for the Picture Book Reading Challenge. They are: #4 a book set on a farm or in the country (Sleep Tight Farm: A Farm Prepares for Winter), #28 a book by Margaret Wise Brown (North, South, East, West), #60 a book by Kevin Henkes (Egg), and # 73 a challenged book OR a controversial book (XO, Ox). I also read books to fulfill #27 a wordless picture book (The Wrong Side of the Bed by Edward Ardizzone), #34. a book about being ME, about being unique, special, loved, etc. (One of a Kind by Ariel S. Winter, illustrated by David Hitch), and # 63 a Caldecott honor (Sleep Like a Tiger by Mary Logue, illustrated by Pamela Zagarenski). Unfortunately these books went back to the library before I had a chance to review them!
