Well, it's my own fault. I've been busy doing other things.
How did I not know that Elizabeth Bird has been doing a MONTH of 31 Days 31 Lists of various types of good (or sometimes bad) picturebooks.
What lists do you ask?
There are lists of Folktales, Photography picturebooks, Alphabet books, Picturebooks with MESSAGES that hit you over the head, Great Funny picture books, and more - lots and lots more.
Now, the link I have above is to the main page of her blog, so if you are reading this in 2017, you will have to scroll back to the December 2016 posts in order to find these lists.
Click on over and enjoy.
