Educators Cathy Mere & Mandy Robek have been running the #pb10for10 event for several years now. What’s #pb10for10? Well, you pick 10 picture books you simply can’t live without and share today, August 10th, with the hashtag #pb10for10 (see the official rules here). Share your own and check out all the others in the #pb10for10 Google Community.
I participated last year for the first time and had a blast. My theme was Rhyming Picture Books (you don’t need a theme, but sometimes it helps narrow down your choices when there are SOOO many great picture books out there).
This year, I’m sharing my favorite, Pirate, Dinosaur, and Dragon Picture Books (you can probably guess why – if not, see the sidebar —>)
1. The Pirates Next Door by Jonny Duddle
2. Rex Wrecks It by Ben Clanton
3. Take Care, Good Knight by Shelley Moore Thomas & Paul Meisel
4. The Night Pirates by Peter Harris & Deborah Allwright
5. Edwina: The Dinosaur Who Didn’t Know She Was Extinct by Mo Willems
6. When a Dragon Moves In by Jodi Moore & Howard McWilliam
7. Pirate Princess by Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen & Jill McElmurry
8. Hiding Dinosaurs by Dan Moynihan
9. Have You Seen My Dragon? by Steve Light
10. Kid Sheriff and the Terrible Toads by Bob Shea & Lane Smith
(#10 isn’t strictly about dinosaurs, but it allows me to have three books each for pirates, dinosaurs, and dragons – and then this one – you’ll see when you read it)
