I was delighted when Lisa’s and my friend, fellow anthology editor Nicki Richesin, invited me to write up my family’s five favorite picture books for The Children’s Book Review. I quickly realized I needed to narrow the topic even further. Five favorite train books? Five favorite bear books? No, it had to be five favorite food books.
I could have written about ten or more, and at one point I had a teetering pile of books on my desk, but I managed to winnow it down; take a look at my list, and then come back to let me know about your favorite food picture books!
