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

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.)
