Picture Books by Virginia Lee Burton for 11/15/11

by Tilly Thyme on November 15, 2011

We have arrived at mid-month, and the countdown to our final picture book begins. Are you celebrating Picture Book Month in your home? If so, tell me how. Since picture books are an integral part of our daily routine, my children probably haven’t noticed much of a difference, but we are, as always, enjoying the simple pleasure of reading aloud together at breakfast, after school, and before bed.

Today I hope you’ll consider picking up a book by author and illustrator extraordinaire Virginia Lee Burton when next you visit your library or bookstore.

Here are a few of our favorites:

Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel

The Little House

Katy and the Big Snow

There are wonderful activities and information on the Official Publisher’s site for all of Virginia Lee Burton’s creations.  Rediscover these classics with your children today.
