I read 155 picture books in September. This month I decided to focus on titles from the last three years. I discovered several of these books during a 12 x 12 webinar with children’s librarian and All the Wonders podcast creator, Matthew Winner.
Visit my January-August posts for Goodreads links to the picture books I’ve read in 2016.

10 thoughts on “1000 Picture Books in 2016~September”
AJ, seems like you’re doing great. What’s your total so far for the year?
763. I’ve never spent so much time at the library. It’s wonderful! I’d love to work at the library when my daughter starts going to school 🙂
It’s truly rewarding to work at the library! I started out at our public library as a desk aid. Then over the course of my 5 years there I added a lot of jobs like creating displays and doing graphic design work to keep myself busy. I loved my patrons of all ages. From there I transitioned to an elementary school library and it’s so fun! Picture books every day!
My dream is to be an elementary school librarian! So wonderful to connect with you!
Fantastic! You’re definitely going to hit that 1000 mark! I work at my local public library and it really is a nice place to work.
Wishing I had made more time to read books. I liked the August post with PORM IN MY POCKET. Many thanks.
Of course, that word is POEM.
