Hopefully you all have been following along as A Fuse #8 Production counted down the Top 100 Picture Books of All Time. But in case you haven’t, or in case you, like me, love having everything in a nicely compiled list, here it is.
I posted my votes and runners up before the countdown began. All but 2 made it onto the list – the 2 being IRA SLEEPS OVER and SOMETIMES I LIKE TO CURL UP IN A BALL. So I’d say overall, I win!*
More importantly, this is now an awesome list of books I love, and books I somehow never read but clearly will now go check out. Elizabeth Bird also wrote up great descriptions and histories of all of the titles as the countdown went along, which I’d highly recommend reading. In conclusion, awesome by Elizabeth Bird, oh, and picture books rock!
*yes, I’m aware this wasn’t a contest per se. But it still seems to warrant an “I win!” which I am partial to declaring in contest and non-contest situations alike.
