My All Time Favorite Picture Books and #GiveThanks Day#4: I Am Thankful for Picture Books and the Public Library!

Paperback It's Thanksgiving! Book

Today, as I continue President Russell M. Nelson’s challenge to give thanks, I am thankful for picture books, and the public library. I wouldn’t be able to access all these picture books without it. I am actually thankful every day for this combo, and just writing out the thanks today.

Picture books have been a companion for me practically my whole life. at least as long as I can remember. The one below is a particular one I remember my mom reading to me when I was five or six.

Picture books are such a surefire way to make me smile. They make my heart skip some beats as I contemplate the delight I will either get from reading a new one, or reliving the joy of an old one.

I read the Jack Prelutsky one at the top of this post to help ease into the day this morning. It was perfect to clear out the groggy cobwebs of the brain. My little guy snuggled on the living room couch while I read it to help us wake up and get ready to tackle the jobs of the day.
