Anyways, so then I wanted to learn even more, so I went on over to the CiRCE Institute website and you know what I found? They had put together a Greatest Books Bracket (in honor of March Madness, I guess). What a fun idea! The only problem is that it is way out of my league =) I have read some classics, but sadly I didn't even recognize the names of many of the books listed. That does make me so excited to learn and grow more as I teach my children!
So, I thought it would be fun to do something similar, but something that I have a little more knowledge about. What about a Greatest Picture Book Bracket?! The only thing is that I will need your help! Here is what I'm thinking...
- Compile names of the greatest children's picture books
- I will make a bracket
- You will fill out your bracket and send it to me
- Each week will feature a new round and people will vote for their favorites.
- The person with the winning bracket will win a prize! (Maybe the final four books? I'm not sure yet.)
For this week, I just need to hear from you! What are your favorite children's picture books? Leave a comment here, or on facebook, listing some of your favorites!
Does all this talk about great books get your mouth watering for a brand new book? To help you out, I've got at $10 gift certificate to Veritas Press for one of you! (The only catch is that I think you have to have not ordered from the Veritas Press website before.) Veritas Press has an incredible selection of classical education resources, including lots of great literature for your whole family!
