November was Picture Book Month and YACS celebrated by showcasing your favorite picture books in the IS Commons. GSEIS students, faculty, and staff were asked to fill out a form with their favorite picture book and a short description of why they chose that book by November 14, 2015.
“This book is ‘meta.’ It parodies familiar stories and makes them more interesting. It was my first book that played on other books I had read.” -Whitney, The Stinky Cheese Man by Jon Scieszka
“This book tells a simple story in a hilarious way. I am a 24 year old graduate student and this book makes me laugh every time I read it.” – Marisa (Co-President), Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus by Mo Willems
While all of us submitting children’s books, its worth noting that some would consider Graphic Novels to be a picture book as well. What do you think? What is your favorite picture book?
