Welcome to another Wacky Wednesday. Today’s topic is Picture Books. The following list contains some of the most beautiful picture books that I have just fallen in love with. I hope you guys enjoy this list, and maybe find some recommendations from it.
Anzac Day Parade by Glenda Kane, Lisa Allen: This beautiful book takes place on Anzac Day when a former soldier meets a young boy who wants to hear stories about the war. The story is told in rhyme and the illustrations are absolutely beautiful. This book is a must have for all Australians, regardless of their age.
Butterfly! We’re Expecting You by Libby Hathorn: I can’t even describe how wonderful this book is. An amazingly beautiful children’s book that takes a journey through a backyard discovering birds, bees and of course a butterfly. Reading this book made me wish I had children to share it will. If you have a child in your life, you absolutely have to get them this book.
A You’re Adorable by Buddy Kaye, Fred Wise, Sidney Leppman: OMG OMG OMG. I grew up hearing this song, so I was over the moon when my mum found this book. The book is perfect, the illustrations are fantastic and it comes with a CD performed by the amazing Justine Clarke. OMG OMG OMG.
Do Not Open This Book by Andy Lee: This book was amazing. The story was fun and entertaining, It kept you turning the page all the way to the very end. The amazing illustrations by Heath McKenzie were bright and engaging and perfectly complimented the story being told. If you have a little one in your life, they will love this book.
After The Fall by Dan Santat: Who can say no to a book with Humpty Dumpty on the cover. I was intrigued by this cover so I purchased the book. I am so glad I did. This book is a sequel to the much-loved Humpty Dumpty tale. I love the message off this book and the illustrations were absolutely beautiful. This book is a must have for young and old.
Santa Is Coming To Sydney by Steve Smallman: I love this book. There aren’t very many Christmas books set in Australia, and the ones that are usually take place in the Outback. I loved getting to see areas I know and love depicted in this book. I know these books have been released with many cities as the focus, so if you are look for an amazing story with awesome illustration, find a book from the Santa Is Coming collection that appeals to you.
Knock Knock Dinosaur by Caryl Hart: This book was awesome. The bright sparkly, bold coloured writing captured my attention straight away. Thankfully the story being told was as bright and joyful as its illustrations. This book is a must have for all young readers and their families.
The First Hippo On The Moon by David Walliams: David Walliams can do no wrong in my opinion. I absolutely loved this book. The story was sweet yet thoroughly entertains and once again Tony Ross has knocked it out of the park with his amazing illustrations. This is the perfect book for people with little ones in their lives. If you havent yet picked this book up, do it now.
Bouncing Bouncing Little Joeys by Lesley Gibbes: This Aussie Christmas story is absolutely perfect. An amazing Aussie story with fantastic illustrations. I adored this book and I would recommend it to all parents regard less of the time of year.
I Need A Hug by Susie Linn: This beautiful children’s book follows Boo the bush baby as he travels around the Zoo looking for a hug before he goes to bed. This book is so sweet it will make your teeth ache. A must have for all parents.
Well that’s it from me. Let me no if you have read any of these books or if there are any amazing picture books that you think I should take a look at.
Until next time…
