2012 Picture Book Challenge: June Wrap-Up Post

This year I'm participating in the Read To Me Picture Book Challenge hosted by There's a Book. My goal is to read 700 qualifying books. (The challenge focuses on not just picture books, but board books and easy readers as well. Read more about the challenge, and my goal, here.)

Each month, I'll be posting a list of the picture books I've read, with links* to related reviews and story time posts. Below are the books I read for this challenge in June.
