Another good list of the top picture books of 2011. I've noticed a few titles that have shown up on many lists, notably Grandpa Green by Lane Smith. This is a really good book, and if you haven't seen it yet, be sure to check it out. I reviewed it back on October 25 and mistakenly said the author was the wonderfully entertaining and prolific Jane Yolen (which actually caused her to comment on the review - oops!).
In any case, here is the link to the Publisher's Weekly list. Lots of good titles to see!
