Perfect Picture Books - PKTR 16

For a variety of reasons, the PKTR hosts felt motivated to do a show all about picture books. First of all, with the ongoing WGA strike, there's nothing on television (was there ever anyway?). Secondly, we've read about a decline in time spent reading and have heard that more and more parents are spending less time with their kids while at the same time we've read about how important reading is to our minds. So...somehow we put that all together and thought maybe in some small way we can help by providing a list of picture books that are good for kids, fun for parents to read and some of which you may not have heard about until now.

Listen to the podcast for detailed descriptions of each of these books (and a few more!).

So here it is:

Knuffle Bunny by Mo Willems

Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson

Cows Can't Fly by David Milgrim

The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn

You and Me, Little Bear by Martin Waddell

Good Job, Oliver! by Laurel Molk

Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey

If You Give a Pig a Pancake by Laura Numeroff

A Bad Case of Stripes by David Shannon

Duck for President by Doreen Cronin

Leave a comment for a chance to win a prize (listen to the show for details!).

Thanks for listening! Join us again next week on Parents & Kids Talk Radio.
