I’m Not Cute! by Johnathan Allen
I have always been attracted to stories with owls. No surprise that the 101 Picture Book Challenge contains the best one, “I’m not cute!” by Johnathan Allen. Baby Owl considers himself mature enough to go for a walk in the forest on his own, hoping nobody will bother him. However, he encounters many animals who irritate and frustrate him tremendously every time they bring up his cuteness. Baby Owl’s behavior, a typical case of the terrible twos, is depicted in a fun way. Simple and expressive illustrations make his terrible tantrums the cutest of them all.
The 101 Picture Book Challenge is for anyone at any age. Librarians hand picked the titles on the list which includes classics, new titles and everything in between.
To get started, register online. You can track your progress online or if you prefer a paper log booklet, pick one up at your neighborhood Library. The books are organized into categories, but you can read the books in any order and at your own pace. When you read all 101 titles, you earn a free picture book (while supplies last).
This is the latest in a series of blog posts exploring some of the things we love about these books.
