[BHE 302] PictureBooks Extravaganza From the Library (Part Two of Two)

Picturebook Extravaganza!


Myra here.

Every sunday, we share the books that hunted/ haunted us down until we finally caved in and brought them home. A few weeks ago, I shared a few of my picturebook finds from the library, here is Part Two of that post.

USBBY 2017 Outstanding Picturebooks

A few weeks ago, the USBBY released their outstanding international books list (see here). While there are a few that we still don’t have here in Singapore, I made an emergency trip to the library to immediately snatch those that I could find.

Borrowed from the NIE (National Institute of Education) Library

I have multiple sources of books, as you can see. Apart from the public libraries, I also get to borrow lots of books from my institution’s library (the National Institute of Education). I requested nearly a hundred books which I will be using for my higher-degree course on The Use Of Multicultural Children’s Picturebooks for Social And Emotional Learning. I was only able to borrow around five at the moment (maxed out my card), including After the Fall above.

Manjhi Moves A Mountain by Nancy Churnin and Illustrated by Danny Popovici, Miguel’s Brave Knight: Young Cervantes And His Dream Of Don Quixote by Margarita Engle and Illustrated by Raul Colon.

How about you, fellow book geeks? Any books that hunted/haunted you down over the past several weeks?
