Greatest Picture Book Bracket - Round 2

Pin It

This post contains affiliate links to the wonderful books that are a part of this bracket.

Thank you to everyone who voted on Round 1 of the Greatest Picture Book Bracket!  It was really fun to see what everyone picked.  Some of the books won by a landslide and others were a close call!  Here are the results (you can click on the bracket to view it larger):


After Round 1, the four top scoring people are:

  1. Karen D. - 27 points
  2. Cat W. - 26 points
  3. Catherine K. - 26 points
  4. Christy S. - 26 points

Everyone is pretty close, though, so it's anyone's game!

So now it's time to vote on round 2!  ANYONE can vote.  You do not have to have turned in a bracket.  For those of you who turned in a bracket, I suggest voting for the ones that you picked (well, if you want to increase your chances of winning anyways =)  If you still want to get in on the fun and have a chance to win a $35 amazon giftcard, you can still turn in a bracket, you just miss the points for the first round.

Also, you don't have to vote on every match up if you don't want.  Feel free to just name a few if that's all you have time for.

    1. Thanks! I was trying to keep the original numbers that are on the bracket, but I did make a mistake on Blueberries for Sal (should be 23). I've got you down for Sal =)

    Oh, another tough round!
    A lovely book most don't read anymore is Miss Rumphius .. and a shame that it's up against A Snowy Day, a beautiful, friendly book. I voted for Miss Rumphius, even though I suspect it will lose. Consider, readers, checking it out from your local library. Roxaboxen is also a personal favorite!
