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.
Night Guard by Synne Lea and Illustrated by Stian Hole, Armstrong: The Adventurous Journey Of A Mouse To The Moon by Torben Kuhlmann.
Lines, Squiggles, Letters, Words by Ruth Rocha and Illustrated by Madalena Matoso, Bob The Railway Dog: The True Story Of An Adventurous Dog by Corinne Fenton and Illustrated by Andrew McLean.
A few other random titles that just called out to me
Here Come The Girl Scouts! by Shana Corey and Illustrated by Hadley Hooper.
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?
