Top 100 Picture Books list (in progress)

I've been glued to A Fuse #8 production at School Library Journal the last few days -- a great list of the top 100 children's picture books is being unveiled (as recommended by members of the kidlitosphere).  I sent in my top picks about a month ago and so far...... none have appeared on the countdown.....  Watch with me as the top 50 are announced, I wonder if (and where) my suggestions show up!   I believe the question asked was "what are the top 10 most important picture books" and so....  it will be very exciting!  The summaries of each book are great and it's a wonderful resource for ideas!!!  Enjoy!!

P.S.  Shall I share my votes?  

1. The Little Engine That Could

2. The Snowy Day

3. The Very Hungry Caterpillar

4. Caps for Sale      (#17) 

5. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs (#33) 

6. Goodnight Moon

7. Dear Zoo

8. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom (#24)

9. Trains by Byron Barton

10. In the Small Small Pond
