Library Book Sale

  • Picture Books, Part One

Last Sunday, I kicked off my annual series on my largest book haul of the year (and maybe ever!). During this series, I’m going to link the previous posts in order at the beginning of each post. Today, I’m will round off the picture books I hauled with part two! Here’s the second half of my picture book haul:

  • Lunch with Alex by the first grade students at Hollis Hand Elementary School

I think it is so awesome that this book was created by students at an elementary school! This could be a great book to use if I was doing a similar project in my own classroom.

  • The Planets in Our Solar System by Franklyn M. Branley
  • Casey at Bat by Keith Bendis
  • Who’s in the Jungle? by Judy Nayer
  • Corduroy by Don Freeman
  • How Do Dinosaurs Learn Their Colors?/How Do Dinosaurs Play with their Friends? by Jane Yolen and Mark Teague

I have another Dinosaurs book, but I thought this one was super unique because there’s two in one! Once you finish reading one side of the book, you flip it over and have a new story!

  • The Night Before Thanksgiving by Natasha Wing
  • Olive, The Other Reindeer by J. Otto Seibold and Vivian Walsh

I remember watching this movie when I was younger and loving it! I’m so glad that I found the book!

  • There was an Old Lady who Swallowed Some Books by Lucille Colandro
  • There was an Old Lady who Swallowed a Rose by Lucille Colandro

Just when I think I’m done finding Old Lady books, I keep finding new ones to add to my collection!

  • Sir Cumference and the Great Knight of Angleland by Cindy Neuschwander
  • Wemberely Worried by Kevin Henkes

I remember seeing this book in a lot of classrooms that I have visited. I’m so glad that I found a copy for myself. This is such a great book, especially for students starting school for the first time.

  • Lily’s Purple Plastic Purse by Kevin Henkes
  • The Very First Thanksgiving Day by Rhonda Gowler Greene
  • Curious George by H.A. Rey
  • Berlioz the Bear by Jan Brett
  • Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes by Eric Litwin

I’ve been Pete the Cat books at every thrift store, but I never found one… until the library book sale! this Pete the Cat book is especially sentimental to me because I remember reading it over and over to students at the preschool where I spent a semester!

  • Bear Feels Sick by Karma Wilson
  • Bear’s Loose Tooth by Karma Wilson
  • Bear’s New Friend by Karma Wilson
  • Bear Stays Up for Christmas by Karma Wilson

I think the Bear books are so cute, so I’m glad so I could find a few of them in such great condition at the book sale.

  • A Color of His Own by Leo Lionni
  • The True Story of the Three Little Pigs by A. Wolf

This is such a great find to add to my collection! Not only is this a popular picture books, but it’s one that I could read over and over again!

I have started my collection of Tomie de Paola books, so I’m happy to find another to add to my collection. This book would also be great to read around St. Patrick’s Day!
