Dear Santa

Dear Santa,

Books, Books, Books!  I love books!  Here are some of the top picture books for this year and some websites for you to look at for more ideas.  I know books are heavy, so if you want to save your back, I would be just as happy with gift cards to local bookshops!  Thank you, Santa… you’re the best!

Love,

Paige Turner

P.S. When you’re finished with these don’t forget to peruse the adult aisles for mom and dad.

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a
    few of the pictures aren’t loading properly. I’m not
    sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both
    show the same results.

    It’s hard to find educated people on this subject,
    but you sound like you know what you’re talking about!
    Thanks

    We have read all of these, except No Fits Nilson, but we have it from the library. My kids love Mr Wuffles (they’re big David Wiesner fans). I liked The day the crayons quit (Oliver Jeffers’ illustrations are perfect for the text). I think some of our 2013 favorites were The Dark, and On a beam of light.

    Nice selection. They are all winners. Haven’t read a couple of them though!
