CBW Roundup: Elementary Picture Books, continued

The Library Lion
by Michelle Knudsen and Kevin Hawkes
A lion is in the library, and no one knows what to do.  At least he is a quiet lion.
The works of 
Robert McCloskey
McCloskey is so awesome, he was declared a living legend by the Library of Congress in 2000.  Make Way for Ducklings, Blueberries for Sal, and One Morning in Maine are some of our all-time favorites.
Miss Nelson is Missing
by Harry G. Allard and James Marshall
This humorous story follows the kids of room 207 as they deal with a scary substitute teacher.
Miss Rumphius
by Barbara Cooney 
The landscapes in this award-winning picture book are as beautiful as its message.  Miss Rumphius is timeless.
Misty of Chincoteague
by Marguerite Henry and Wesley Dennis
For horse lovers, young and old.
My Friend is Sad
by Mo Willems
What does it take to make a sad elephant happy?  This goofy book about friendship has the answer!
Paddington,  
by Michael Bond and Peggy Fortnum
After more than fifty years, Paddington remains one of the world's most adored Teddy bears, along with Milne's Winnie the Pooh, and Jean Robinson's Teddy Robinson.
These rhyming classics are great for reading out loud (even though it's sometimes a challenge!)  We like Horton Hatches the Egg, Fox in Socks, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Green Eggs and Ham, The Lorax, and...yeah...pretty much all of them.
Seven Silly Eaters
by Mary Ann Hoberman and Marla Frazee
Engaging verses and intricate, wacky pictures make this book about a topsy-turvy household of picky eaters lots of fun.
The works of David Weisner
We can't get enough of David Weisner, whose books are not only gorgeous, but also smart, funny, and sophisticated.  Try The Three Pigs and Flotsam.
