Picture Books They Wish They'd Had

On display in the library in March, national Women's History Month.  Some clearly labors of love, all heartfelt, about being different or not fitting in, about being pre-judged and your abilities not being taken seriously, about finding out who you are and where you belong.

Isn't that how many creative works are born?  To fill an unmet wish or need of its creator?

I think I would have liked a picture book version of Susan Cain's Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking, or one called The Girl Who Hated Group Work. I never really identified with Ferdinand the Bull!

What picture book do you wish had been there for you when you were little?
