This year, I am sharing five not-to-be-missed picture books on the first of each month. This project — and this year — are flying by. It’s July 1st already, folks! With July 4th just around the corner, it is fortuitous that two of the books that I have to share with you today are about marching bands: Max Found Two Sticks and Olivia Forms a Band.
Here is the complete list of 60 Not-to-be-Missed Picture Books.
Mr. Gumpy’s Outing by John Burningham. A delightful story about an amiable man named Mr. Gumpy who agrees to take two children and a slew of animals on a boat ride. While the outcome of the boat trip is predictable, my 2-year-old son is superbly entertained each time we read about Mr. Gumpy’s boat tipping. John Burningham’s illustrations are rich, textured and beautiful. Ages 1+
Max Found Two Sticks by Brian Pinkney
