My Top 5 Favorite Picture Books
by Erin Danielle Russell
1. Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson. This book really spoke to me as a kid who loved drawing on the walls with crayons! …And, my mom’s lipstick too.
2. Jumanji by Chris Van Allsburg. This book was really exciting to me, and even a little scary, because the pictures looked so real! I felt like I was playing the game, Jumanji, every time I read the book.
3. The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg. Who wouldn’t want to ride on a magic train to meet Santa Claus? Van Allsburg’s artwork is always amazing!
4. The Berenstain Bears series by Jan and Stan Berenstain. I used to ask my dad to read me a Berenstain Bears book almost every night because they were funny and really cute.
5. The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales by Jon Scieszka, illustrated by Lane Smith. I’d never heard of a fractured fairy tale until I read this hilarious book. Now I prefer them to the originals!
Blog Tour Schedule:
From the coauthor of Dork Diaries comes a witty and engaging picture book about a prankster who wants to pull off the best prank of all—pranking the Tooth Fairy!
Kaylee loves pulling pranks: from dropping water balloons on passers by to even tricking Santa Claus, she’s a prize-winning prankster!
But is she the Princess of Pranks? No! That title is held by none other than the Tooth Fairy. But when Kaylee loses a tooth and the Tooth Fairy goes about her usual tooth-taking business, Kaylee pranks her with a fake frog. As Kaylee and the Tooth Fairy try to out-prank one another, things get way out of hand, until the two finally see eye and eye and decide to share the crown!
