Top Ten Tuesday Freebie: Read-Aloud Favorites

* Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish*

Here are my 10 favorite read-alouds. If a child has been coming to my programs for a few years, chances are, they’ve heard some of these several times.

1.) I Ain’t Gonna Paint No More by Karen Beaumont

I Ain't Gonna Paint No More!

2.) The Great Sheep Shenanigans by Peter Bently

The Great Sheep Shenanigans

3.) How Do Dinosaurs Say I Love You? by Jane Yolen

4.) The Book With No Pictures by BJ Novak

5.) Mouse Paint by Ellen Stoll Walsh

6.) Giggle, Giggle, QUACK by Doreen Cronin

7.) The Duckling Gets a Cookie!? by Mo Willems

8.) Knuffle Bunny by Mo Willems


Note: I can read Knuffle Bunny and Knuffle Bunny Too to a group.  I CANNOT read Knuffle Bunny Free because I will turn into a sobbing mess.

That Is Not a Good Idea!

10.) Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes

  1. YAY! Great choice of topic this week. I always love freebie week as people always do such amazing topics! At my old library I used to do storytime and read quite a few of these myself. My absolute favourites were any that rhymed, the kids love those!

    Here’s my TTT post if you want to check it out. I picked non-book romances I would love to see get book adaptations.

    I second the “sobbing mess” issue with Knuffle Bunny Free. I also like Tacky the Penguin and anything by Mac Barnett.
