Steph's Top Five Picture Books of 2012

Looking for something special to give to a younger reader? Steph picks five beautiful picture books that are sure to tickle a pre-schooler's fancy.

Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin and Daniel Salmieri (illust.)

This cleverly written, humorously illustrated storybook warns against the dangers of throwing your own dragon taco party.
It's a Tiger! by David LaRochelle, Jeremy Tankard (illust.)

It seems you can't turn the page of this adventure book without encountering a stripy orange beast! An excellent read-aloud choice.
What Little Boys Are Made Of by Robert Neubecker

The sweeter and wilder sides of boys, featuring incredible illustrations full of colour and activity.
Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site by Sherri Duskey Rinker, Tom Lichtenheld (illust.)

Finally, two hot topics come together: Construction vehicles and bedtime! Highly recommended!
How Does Sleep Come? by Jeanne C. Blackmore, Elizabeth Sayles (illust.)

A beautiful lullaby of a book, full of evocative images and poetic text. An excellent "last book before bed."
