Picture Book Bracket

It's November and that means two things: there are a lot more hairy-faced men out there and it's time for us to celebrate our love of picture books! It's hard for me to participate in No-Shave November since I don't shave pretty much all year, but I'm happy that others are joining me in giving their razors a rest. But participating in Picture Book Month is so much easier. It can be as simple as recommending a particularly awesome picture book to a particularly awesome friend. Or it can be something a little more ... interesting.

This year, we're celebrating Picture Book Month by having a Picture Book Bracket. I chose 16 of our favorite picture books and paired them in 8 initial match-ups. They're all awesome, but only one can win. Which one will it be? 

Voting starts this week. Each match-up will be decided by two or three classes. In the final match-up, every student in the building will cast a vote. 

The contenders are:
  • Pete the Cat: Rocking In My School Shoes by Eric Litwin
  • The Book That Eats People by John Perry
  • The Chicken Chasing Queen of Lamar County by Janice Harrington
  • The Garden of Abdul Gasazi by Chris Van Allsburg
  • Jitterbug Jam by Barbara Jean Hicks
  • Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge by Mem Fox
  • The Hello-Goodbye Window by Norton Juster
  • The Sweetest Fig by Chris Van Allsburg
  • The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt
  • That Moose Belongs to Me by Oliver Jeffers
  • Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes by Eric Litwin
  • The Book with No Pictures by BJ Novak
  • Probuditi by Chris Van Allsburg
  • When a Monster is Born by Sean Taylor
  • Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons by Eric Litwin
  • The Big Elephant in the Room by Lane Smith
