#SixForSunday: Favorite Picture Books

Six for Sunday

To have to choose only SIX of my favorite picture books is excruciating because there have been so many fantastic picture books that I’ve loved that I would pick for this prompt (and SFS’s February theme: small but mighty). What’s a book lover to do?

Here’s the list of books I came up with that are amazing and deserve a million gazillion gold stars:

Bedtime Bonnet by Nancy Amanda Reed, Illustrated by Nneka Myers

When the sun goes down the hair goes up! What a great read that I wholly saw myself in. I loved the celebration of this nightly hair-care routine.

The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt, Pictures by Oliver Jeffers

Crayons are my favorite things to color with, so I was already half in love with this story before it began. It’s funny but with a great message about taking care of things that belong to us.

Eyes That Kiss In The Corners by Joanna Ho, Illustrated by Dung Ho

A young girl learns to love herself, her features, and her cultures. This was so heartwarming.

Drawn Together by Minh Lê, Illustrated by Dan Santat

A boy and his grandfather learn to finally communicate with each other through their shared passion for art. This one tugged at the heartstrings and wowed me with it’s beautiful illustrations.

Llama Destroys the World by Jonathan Stutzman, Illustrated by Heather Fox

This book is hilarious! Llama is just living his best life. Meanwhile, a series of events are leading towards the end of the world. It’s ridiculous fun all things considered.

I Promise by LeBron James, Illustrated Nina Mata

I Promise is an awe-inspiring read that lays out a series of promises that allude to how kids can strive for greatness. The beautiful illustrations are so eye-catching as well!

Because I can’t help myself, here are honorable mentions and recommendations that would have also made this list of exceptional picture books:

  • Dragons Love Tacos
  • A Home Again
  • Lillian’s Right to Vote: A Celebration of the Voting Rights Act of 1965
  • The Oldest Student: How Mary Walker Learned to Read
  • Our Class is a Family
  • When We Are Kind

Pictures are great to read even if you’re an adult. They’re light-hearted and fun, but can pack a wallop of feels through well-crafted words and stunning visuals.

There are countless more pictures I’ve yet to read that I know will be as good as the ones I’ve mentioned. I’m hoping to make a big dent in my picture book tbr this year. So far the ones I’ve read have been enjoyable.

What are some of your favorite picture books that you would recommend I read?
