This month we are sharing 31 of our very favorite picture books for everyone. We have chosen kids’ books with vivid language, interesting stories and striking artwork to appeal to every person in your family.

Each book post also includes a few activities — some simple, some more involved — for your entire family to enjoy together. Or not! Reading the book is enough in itself if that is all you want to do.

Picture Book Details

Book: Vulture View 

Author: April Pulley Sayre

Illustrator: Steve Jenkins

Vulture View

A kids book about Vultures? Really? I hear you. Prepare to be surprised!

This rhyming day in the life book takes you with the Vultures as they hunt for food. But what kind of food? Giggles and laughs will follow as you read this book to your kids. Most certainly a rambunctious read aloud for any member of the family!

Steve Jenkins does it again. The illustrations in this book are bold, colorful and crisp. His artwork is unique and catches the eyes of my children as we read together.

Do More with Kids’ Books

Here in Alabama there are some who say that the vulture should be our state bird, we see so many of them. Somehow this book makes them more attractive. After all, I would rather see a vulture than a dead animal on the side of the road.

Vultures and other carrion eaters are important members of any food chain. Spend some time talking about food chains. My kids love to talk about who eats what. This can be done very informally as you read the book or you can use some of these resources for a mini unit if they show interest.

Join us every day this month as we explore fun kids’ books and activities. Be sure to pin our landing page so you can find every post, or even better, sign up for our email list so you don’t miss a thing.
