Top Ten Tuesday - Getting Graphic

It's TTT and the theme for this week over at Broke and Bookish is getting graphic or a focus on visual arts, like picture books.

Here are ten picture books that I have favorited in the last little while:

Wolf in the Snow by Matt Cordell. I have not gotten around to reviewing this one. It's received five or six starred reviews so I don't really need to. It's beautiful.

Be Quiet! by Ryan T. Higgins for read aloud fun.

Preaching to the Chickens: the story of a young John Lewis by Jabari Asim. Illustrated by E. B. Lewis.

Lift Your Light a Little Higher: the story of Stephen Bishop, slave explorer by Heather Henson. Illustrated by Bryan Collier.

Coyote Moon by Maria Gianferrari. Illustrated by Bagram Ibatoulline.

Tiny Stitches: the life of medical pioneer, Vivien Thomas by Gwendolyn Hooks. Illustrated by Colin Bootman.

Return by Aaron Becker. This third book completes the trilogy begun in Journey. I adore wordless books and these three are luminous.

The Water Princess by Susan Verde. Illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds. I adore Reynolds' art and this story is just amazing.

Ada's Violin: the story of the Recycled Orchestra of Paraguay by Susan Hood. Illustrated by Sally Wern Comport.

Are We There Yet? by Dan Santat.
