Good Picture Book Series?


Recommended Posts

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


Angelina Ballerina


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!

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.)


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



Wizard of Oz

The two gruffalo books


Henry and Mudge


He liked dogs, I should check out Marley.


Thomas the Tank Engine

And not really a character based series but worth a mention. Books by Beatrix Potter.

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.)
