Fiction- Picture Books _E_ by sdaferv


									Fiction- Picture Books (E)
An extensive list of the “best of the best” picture books has been compiled to help you build your school library collection. Many of the authors
have published numerous titles. Often the outstanding titles are the ones that are mentioned. In the case where “assorted titles” is noted, the
author has many and various titles that would be suitable for the school library collection. A “C” indicates that the author is Canadian.
Curriculum areas have been included where appropriate.
Note: Some books appearing on the Picture book collection may actually be catalogued as nonfiction but in certain circumstances the Teacher
Librarian may wish to place a book in the Picture Book area (E) for ease of access for the students. (Example I Spy series).
