More Picture Books

Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed by Mo Willems

Fabulous in classic Mo Willems "fashion" (pun absolutely intended), Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed is the story of Wilbur, the NMR who likes clothes. The others are, of course, entirely disgusted by this. NMRs do NOT wear clothes!
This is a really cute story. And if you look closely, the pigeon makes a brief appearance-- which I think may have been Boo's favorite part.

Skunks! by David T. Greenberg

I heard about this one from my friends over at BOOKSCOOPS ('cause let's face it, they have all the best picture book ideas) and we finally got it from the library. It's extraordinarily silly, and having read it, Boo came to the following conclusions-
1. Skunks smell worse than her little brother.
2. Skunks would NOT make good underwear.
3. She is afraid of skunks.

So, I guess that kind of backfired.... (You really have to read the post on Bookscoops to fully appreciate this.)

Do you have a favorite picture book?? Because we need to go to the library again, and I'm always looking for new ideas....


  1. Sorry to hear that Boo is afraid of skunks. We are no longer dealing with that one at least at this point.

    As far as picture books. I would highly recommend Nic Bishop Frogs - a Cybils winner. Incredible photographs.

    And thanks for the linky love.

  2. :D
    Luckily skunks aren't a big problem here.... out of sight out of mind, apparently.
    Though I may have to be careful about that episode of George now...
