BIG thanks to everyone who entered and shared what you love about picture books–so many lovely comments. For example, here’s what Jennifer has to say:

I love picture books because of the bonding time they provided when my daughters were young. I read to them every day: at quiet time in the morning, at naptime in the afternoon, sitting on the window seat when it was raining outside, after bath time. Now that my daughters are grown, I still buy them picture books every so often, just because. 

Many thanks to Hazel for visiting Frog on a Dime this week and to Charlesbridge Publishing for your generosity!

  1. I love picture books because reading them has always slowed me down, and in the slowing down I believe we give children time for reflection. Maybe that is why I have fallen in love with photography – because it causes me to slow down to see and reflect on what is around me. I love your blog, Vicky.

    • I’d never thought about the built-in slowing down aspect of picture books. Come to think of it, the picture books I love best are the ones with lots of detailed illustrations that invite me to pause and reward me with little images I’d have missed if I was simply skimming. Thank you for sharing your perspective, Pat. I enjoy your blog too!
