Top Ten Tuesday: Picture-Book Edition

Welcome to the Top Ten Tuesday link-up hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Today the prompt is: Ten books for readers who like (fill in the blank). My books are in no particular order and while they may not be my very favorites, they’re all books I either do own or want to someday own for if I ever have children. Meaning, they’re fantastic. 
Top Ten Books for Picture-Book Enthusiast: 

Best picture book ever. It’s about a bear. And a boy. And friendship. 
It’s no wonder this is an award-winning book. Everyone with children should own it.

A cute story about ducklings in Boston.  

The pictures! Ah, for some reason I thought they were the best when I was a little kid. 
I could look at this book for hours on end. 
Same with this book. 
I couldn’t find the exact book I read as a kid, but this classic folk tale is great. 

I didn’t read this book until I was older (12?). 
Traveling all over the world to get various ingredients? Yes, please! 
You. Have. To. Get. This. Book. 
A secret recipe and a Thanksgiving celebration… Plus a thief, of course. 

I had a hard time trying to chose my 10th book, but this one is fantastic.

    Yay for picture books! I loved your list. And several are great favorites of mine as well. My daughter loved many of these and we read them over and over. Very nice picks!

    I don't really remember the picture books I read/that was read to me as a child. I do remember crying to Disney's The Fox and the Hound though, but that's about it. All of these seems really cute though. Great list, and thanks for stopping by my TTT earlier. 🙂

    I never really liked picture books as a child, I had some but they always had more text than picture, even before I could read. Your list comes handy now because I was thinking about buying a picture book to my best friend's little sister for her birthday.
    Lovely list. 🙂

    My childhood had a lot of picture books in it. I still enjoy looking at picture books because they're just so beautiful! Good thing I have lots of little cousins and nieces and nephews. 🙂

    I remember Blueberries for Sal! I'm not sure if we had a copy, though, or if we borrowed it from the library. Another really old book I remember from my childhood is Millions of Cats. It was one of the first picture books for children.

    I reviewed a number of picture books last year. Some of my favourites were Journey, Flora and the Flamingo, Uni the Unicorn, and Sparky!. All are very cute.

    Ah I love picture books! Mike Mulligan, The Little Red Hen, and Blueberries for Sal were some of my staples as a child! I was also in love with Goodnight Moon and The Giving Tree.
