Picture Books for Kindergarten

My best friend from elementary school just started teaching Kindergarten. She asked me to come up with some picture books that she could potentially use in her classroom. This is what I came up with. The list got a little bit away from me. There are way more titles than I originally anticipated. I just couldn’t leave off some of my favorites.
