six picture books for six years of this picture book life

It’s been six years of This Picture Book Life in July.

To mark the occasion, I’m giving away the six picture books above to one reader! (N. America only.)

Another by Christian Robinson (2019), a wonderful, curious, and wordless mind-bender in Robinson’s signature illustrative style.

The Undefeated by Kwame Alexander and Kadir Nelson (2019), an incredible, jaw-droppingly gorgeous book the author describes as a “love letter to America. To black America.”

My Papi Has A Motorcycle by Isabel Quintero, illustrated by Zeke Peña (2019), a portrait of a hometown and a family and change and what stays the same.

You’re Safe with Me by Chitra Soundar, illustrated by Poonam Mistry (2018), a lullaby of a book to feel safe in any storm (and you can see the craft the illustrator contributed to a blog post last year here!).

How to Two by David Soman (2019), an inventive counting book that honors play and collaboration and inclusion.

It’s Time for Bed by Ceporah Mearns and Jeremy Debicki, illustrated by Tim Mack (2018), a bedtime book featuring Siasi, who would charmingly rather commune with Arctic animals than fall asleep.

    I love all six, but I think the title How to Two will be a class favorite as my littles are still learning how to collaborate.

  3. Crystal says:

    I just read My Papi Has a Motorcycle at the bookstore and it’s set in my hometown. Every book on this giveaway is one I would LOVE for my classroom!

  4. Erica Niska says:

    I would love to read How to Two with my little ones but it’s so hard to choose with such amazing options!

    “Tell us which of these books you’ve been looking forward to, a favorite summery picture book, or your favorite read-aloud for a six year old.” Hmm, of these books I think maybe “It’s Time For Bed” has the most-fun cover!

  6. Great book choices to give away!

    What an awesome bunch, and must add to my “to read” list! I’ve always loved Kadir Nelson’s illustrations. They look so real!

    I’ve been wanting to read “My Papi Has a Motorcycle” since I first saw it–I think–here on your blog! I’ve had it on order at the library ever since and it *just* became available this week (pick up is today!). I thought my kids would love it because…their dad has a motorcycle and takes them on it frequently!

  12. Maria Oka says:

    Yay! I’ve always loved reading your book reviews. Thanks for what you do!

  13. Amanda W says:

    Oh man, what books WOUDLN’T I like, haha! My son has just recently started fully reading on his own, so I think I would want to choose a book that is at an early reading level that he can sink his teeth into

  14. Susan Smith says:

    How To Two looks like a cute book my niece would enjoy.

  15. Gabi Snyder says:

    Congratulations on SIX great years! Thanks for your fabulous reviews and generous giveaways!

  16. Nancy Payette says:

    I like the motorcycle book because it reminds me of how my dad used to take me on his motorcycle.
