Any suggestions for good picture books that carry a certain character all the way through several books? So far I have:

Winnie the Pooh
Toot and Puddle
Elephant and Piggie
Madeline
Angelina Ballerina
Corduroy
Fancy Nancy
Llama Llama
Pete The Cat
Curious George
Amelia Bedelia
Berenstain Bears

I am planning to do a series of character books for bedtime read alouds this year, so ideas would be much appreciated! :)
Thanks in advance!

Oh, so many great ones listed!

Don't forget Carl! http://us.macmillan.com/series/Carl

We never, ever get tired of these!

Also, I see Elephant and Piggie but not the Pigeon books or Knuffle Bunny.

Oh, and many of Beatrix Potter's characters make repeat appearances.

Biscuit!  A huge favorite here!

I am doing the same type of thing with my kindergartener :)  So far I have Biscuit, Winnie the Pooh, Curious George, Fancy Nancy & Angelina Ballerina and I am buying little play figures or stuffed animals for each.  I'm really excited about this.  LOL!  I LOVE this age!!  So sweet!

Mercy Watson

Jenny and the Cat Club (kind of chapter books, but they have some pictures and I found them to be a good transition. There are several in the series.)

Olivia

The Pigeon from Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, etc.

Lily's Purple Plastic Purse and other Kevin Henkes books featuring those mice, I think there are several with the same characters. (Sorry, foggy recollection since most of my kids are older and my 2 yr old doesn't care for those yet.)

Max and Ruby (the original books, by Rosemary Wells)

We really like series also because me son gets attached to characters.
My son's favorites are:

Little House Picture Books
Madeline
Babar
Wizard of Oz
The two gruffalo books
Biscuit
Henry and Mudge
Noodles.
He liked dogs, I should check out Marley.
Corduroy
Thomas the Tank Engine
And not really a character based series but worth a mention. Books by Beatrix Potter.

We've fallen in love with Mr. Putter and Tabby. (All Cynthia Rylant books, actually.)

 

In addition to many of those named above, we've had fun with Fly Guy, and Splat the Cat books, Nate the Great, and (of course) love anything by Richard Scarry.

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie! There are a couple of Mouse ones, but the mouse makes appearances in some of the other books too, which my preschoolers thought was just fantastic! (Like, in one, the mouse and moose appear at the carnival, and the main character, the pig, I think it is, brings them home to play hide-and-seek.)

My kids love Gossie and all her gosling friends. They are very simple but they are favorites.

I scrolled quickly, but I don't think I saw anyone list the Lyle, Lyle Crocodile books by Bernard Waber.
