For anyone is in the frame of mind to see our, very slowly growing, pins of favourite picture book covers; I'm archiving them on Pinterest. This is not a list of every great picture book out there, just my personal favourites and mostly they are titles we own. (Second hand book sales have been a wonderful place to find discarded gems.)
I count myself as very blessed ☺ as Daisy appreciates picture books too; and, she has her own small collection going. During her highschooling years we are using picture books for art/illustrator studies.
Jay is more interested in plastic model artisans, and their painting techniques. ;-)
With the next two boards, I'm also only pinning books *we* like, not trying to create an exhaustive list of every title available.
After the War ~ Bob Kerr

|We like to keep flipping back to the opening pages to note the change the years have created.|

Clicking on the picture will allow you to read the page beneath.
The Immigrants ~ Alan Bagnall (Sarah Wilkins' artwork reminds me of Rita Angus' painting style)
