8 Picture Books That Make Us Wish We Were Kids Again

In honor of the 76th Caldecott Award to be given tomorrow, NPR took an informal poll of titles readers thought could receive that shiny circle.   The article, by Nicole Cohen, show lush illustrations that make me want to leap into the story.

Journey by Aaron Becker is being added to my library list stat.

As I was reading the article and drooling over the artwork, Miss C climbed on my lap and read the title. 
"Well, I don't wish I were a kid again.  I already am a kid."

So: 8 titles that make some of us wish we were a kid again. 
Or, 8 titles that make us feel like we're a kid again.
Or 8 books that will make you want to roll around in paint and paper and see what happens. 


  1. You're on a worthy mission. Hope Joureny helps.

    1. Now if only I could learn to spell the title of my book...

  2. Just seeing this now. Love your book, it's beautiful.
    Joureny could be the sequel: "Part Two: The Unedited Version of a Journey!"
