Picture Books We've Read to Pieces

Family Literacy Day comes each year on January 27, a national initiative spearheaded by the non-profit ABC Life Literacy Canada to raise awareness of the importance of reading and engaging in other literacy-related activities as a family. And this year to mark the occasion, we're thinking about the picture books we've read to pieces, sometimes quite literally—see the photo above. The books we never tire of, the ones we've read a million times, from the time our kids were babies, and now they're reading alongside us. Although who are we kidding? Nobody's reading. All of us know these stories off by heart. These are the books that my family has loved until their bindings broke. What are some of yours?

Psychedelic Reads

This list began as a call-out for books that could make it through the haze of painkillers – books whose plots were so strong, emotions so high, that the ailing reader could somehow still follow along. It morphed quickly into a list of books that take on added dimension when your reality feels a little, well, surreal – because they're brilliantly weird, sometimes hilarious, sometimes creepy, and hypnotic. These are books you can almost see in colour. Thanks to Nathan Maharaj for the twist!
