What you still read picture books to your girls? But your oldest is in 5th grade now! Yes, we all read picture books. A lot of picture books are perfect for older kids. Plus even older children can learn from the stories. There are many projects you can do with a book beyond the preschool age.
Every week at the library we all pick out picture books. Yes everyone does. I always enjoy watching my girls do a picture walk through a book to see if they might like the book. Picture books are loads of fun for all ages.
This month we have a mix between what my girls picked out and what I did. They have some favorites they picked out this month.

They all have links to Amazon where you can find additional inforamtion about them.
Outstanding in the Rain is a great story where every part has a hole and as you turn the page it reveales what is on the next page. It is a fun story where follow them through the amusement park!

Jill & Dragon is a story about how Jill finishes her book and notices not everyone is happy and she wants to change that. It is a fun story about how she makes the dragon happy and returns him to the book. So everyone has a happily ever after.
The Storyteller is funs tory about a story teller and how story tellers tell stories. This one comes from from Morocco and is about a boy learning from a story teller. It is a fun story to hear as well. There is a fun after note about storytellers and oral history as well. We enjoyed reading this one!
