Top Picture Books of 2014

Posted by on December 31, 2014

We thought it would be a great time to reflect back on some of the picture books we here at the library have most enjoyed in 2014. From a brave bear to a scared crocodile, there were plenty of stories we were happy to share with little ones. There are so many books we could mention here, but we’ve narrowed the list down to just five:

Very Brave BearThe Very Brave Bear by Nick Bland. Bear and his friend Boris the Water Buffalo compete to see just who is the bravest between them. Beautifully illustrated with a story that’s great for reading aloud.





Pigeon Needs a BathThe Pigeon Needs A Bath! by Mo Willems. The pigeon is back, and he still doesn’t want to listen! It’s all about bath time this go ’round. Pigeon may be dirty, but he’s not getting in that tub willingly. A story many parents will undoubtedly be able to relate to.




Pet for Fly GuyA Pet for Fly Guy by Tedd Arnold. Fly Guy has been a loyal pet to Buzz for a long time, and now he’s searching for a pet of his own. There’s lots of humour that kids are sure to love in this one, and a very sweet ending.





Where's My HomeworkWhere’s My Homework by Michael Garland. The pictures really sell this story, about homework that has mysteriously disappeared. Each scenario of what might have happened to the homework is entertaining and the pictures are attention grabbing. The truth behind the missing homework finally comes out in the end.




Crocodile Who Didn't Like WaterThe Crocodile Who Didn’t Like Water by Gemma Merino.  Little crocodile tries hard, but he just doesn’t like the water the way all of his friends do. He can’t understand why he’s different, until a surprise is revealed that will delight readers.




We look forward to seeing what new picture book treasures will come out in 2015.  Until then, we wish you all a Happy New Year!
