We read a lot of books in our house. We read a lot to our 2 year old and 4 year old and we make at least one or two visits a week to our local libraries for story time and to check out more books!
The girls have their favorites, and sometimes they just want to read one book over and over again. I think one way I’ve tried to combat my own re-reading fatigue is to pick books that are wonderfully illustrated so that when I recite the words again and again until I have it memorized, I can admire the pretty artwork!
Today I’m sharing 5 of my recent favorite books I love for the pictures.
We’ve read a lot of Fancy Nancy books, but I love the expressions on this one. The art in all the books are beautiful and this one, Fancy Nancy and the Posh Puppy, is no exception.
I love this book so much, as does my oldest. She is so inspired to be an engineer like Daddy that she’ll just go and flip through the pages, thinking and asking questions. The art is awesome and my younger daughter used to hysterically laugh at some of the illustrations, like the Uncle with the snakes all around him. The whimsy adds to the great message of this book.
3. Some Bugs
This book is short and it’ll about the the pictures. The illustrations are beautiful and there is the cutest cat ever in this book. I love the last page where you can identify the bug. My girls keep pointing at the pages asking me to read the names of the bugs, and picking out their favorite ones.
This is another short book, but the illustrations are so beautiful. The “posters” within the book are so amazing that I want to order my own prints of them. I love how the animals faces have these beautiful expressions on them.
I flipped through the pages admiring the illustrations and everything in this book is beautifully rich and detailed (ha, especially at the dining table!). I also love the fun story twist and the pictures make it that much more wonderful.
Can you tell my girls love books that involve animals? 😉 Three of these books were randomly pulled off the shelves at the library and I love finding new books that way. What are some of your favorite picture books for the pictures?
