Today's the Day: 10 Books That Demonstrate We're Better Together #pb10for10

Today's the day!  Today is our 9th annual August Picture Book 10 for 10 event (here's a little history).  On this day each year, educators, parents, media specialist, and picture book lovers around the globe share ten picture books they just can't live without in the coming school year.  If you'd like to share your favorites, or just check out the books that are being shared this year, please stop by our #pb10for10 Google Community and check out the Twitter hashtag #pb10for10.  Thanks to Mandy Robek of Enjoy and Embrace Learning for helping to kick off the new school year with this great event each year.  

My Past 10 #pb10for10 Collections

Better Together
This seems the perfect collection this year for a million reasons....picture books that demonstrate that we are better together.  

I hope you'll share other titles for this collection in the comments below.  


  1. Wonderful theme & list, Cathy. I admit I'd forgotten about Stick & Stone, don't know You & Me, looks lovely. Thanks for this, and for the day!

  2. I'm thinking of Pete and Pickles, Pink and Say, and The Uncorker of Ocean Bottles. Lovely, lovely list!

  3. Love this collection. I don't know NEITHER or TOGETHER, and I forgot about STICK AND STONE, even though it's in my library. One that might fight into this collection-AMANDA PANDA AND THE BIGGER BETTER BIRTHDAY PARTY. A kindergartener gets her nose out of joint because her best friend is one day older than she is, and then the two discover their birthday party is on the same day. A great book about compromise and problem solving with friends! And funny besides.

  4. Great list! Thanks for sharing! Have a great school year!

  5. This is definitely a wonderful theme. I would add Yak and Dove by Kyo Mclear and That Neighbor Kid by Daniel Miyares to this list.

  6. You've included some really great titles here. Strictly No Elephants is new to me and I'll look it up. Thanks for the list and hosting today's event.
