By the way, Happy Children's Book Week (May 12-18, 2009)! We haven't done anything overly special to celebrate, since books are a big part of our life anyway. If you are looking for something to do today, though, you might check your local library calendar. Many libraries are featuring author readings and book signings in celebration of book week.

Top Picture Books/Children's Book Week
Many thanks to Mommy's Favorite Children's Books for reminding me that Fuse #8 Production's List of the Top 100 Picture Books has been revealed. This was compiled by asking readers to send in their top 10 lists. I thought it might be fun to see how many of these that our little guy has read. At 18 months, he is still too young for most of them, but I was tickled to see that he has "read" the top 7, so it inspired me to keep counting. I think he's read about 18 of them, although some he wasn't very interested in and just gave them a quick glance. I'm excited to check out some more of these, now and in future years. This is definitely a "bookmarkable" list!
