Celebrate Picture Book Month With These Books

Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss

This classic tale of trying new things will delight young and old readers. While some young readers may need help with a few of the words, the rhythm and repetition of the story will help them to remember and learn them.


Guess How Much I Love You, by Sam McBratney, illustrated by Anita Jeram

A playful competition between Little and Big Nutbrown Hare shows readers just how much they love one another. Young readers will delight in turning the page to see what Little and Big Nutbrown Hare come up with next.


The Hallo Wiener, by Dav Pilkey

When Oscar’s mother dresses him up in a bun costume for Halloween, he agrees because of how hard she worked on the costume–despite the fact that he wanted a scary costume. The colorful illustrations and clever story will keep the attention of all readers while also delivering a sweet lesson.


Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson

When Harold goes on a walk with only his oversized purple crayon, he creates a landscape full of wonder and adventure. Encouraging imagination, young readers will want their own purple crayon and adventures to draw.


Harry the Dirty Dog by Gene Zion, illustrated by Margaret Bloy Graham
