Picture Books du Monde: March Review
A monthly Link-up
Welcome to Picture Books Du Monde, a monthly link-up where bloggers from around the world share their love of all things related to picture books.
We’re your hosts: Cathy from Peregrination Gourmande and Shannon from Oh Creative Day.
Hi! I’m Cathy.
I’ve always been a picture books lover. When I started my job as a psychologist, I discovered the power of those books on children with whom I was working. The power of words combined with illustrations. After I became a mum there was no reason to stop me buying tons more picture books for the family. Now I have 2 little bookworms and a well-used VIP card at my local bookstore. I’m also married to a collector of graphic novels. The bookshelves are full!
I’ll share with you each month a selection of picture books that interested us. I might also have some suggestions from my 10 year old daughter.
I hope you enjoy the link-up and the good books.
Hello! I’m Shannon, a teacher and a mama to 2 kids under 3.
I believe that reading is as important as breathing. I dream of having my own picture books published one day. I truly, wholeheartedly believe that there is a picture book to help all little ones (and big ones!) through most of life’s situations. They really are a perfect vehicle for making sense of the world.
I hope our link-up helps you to discover some amazing new books to add to your collections.
As you know, I’ve spent a month in Australia and I brought many many books. My suitcase was full of them! Art and cook books for me, comics for husband, and lots and lots of books for the kids. My blogger friends spoilt us with books. They knew we are a book worm family.
So for this month it will be all about picture books from Australia.
A, B, C books showing typical australian animals. Guess who is using this book to help her with her Australian presentation at school?
The other A, B, C book is about the country. It shows the high spots of the cities, countryside… to the kids. It’s very educative even for adult tourists haha!
I have a daughter who loves craft books. She was delighted to buy this drawing learning book (found it in the store of the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne) and to receive the Melbourne coloring book and the Greetings postcards. I bet her girlfriends were happy to receive those lovely postcards decorated with funky animals stickers.
The last book I wanted to show you is this funny book we found in the bookstore and we bought it, thinking about our pug. This is a short story about a pug who really wants to always be the winner. The drawings are very funny. Even if gingerboy doesn’t understand english the drawings are clear and explicit.
I hope you enjoy my first selection and that it gives you some ideas. Have a look at Shannon’s review and add your link here.
