Name That Book! Kid Drawing Edition


A bunch of teachers at my school asked students to draw their favorite book and write a couple sentences about why they love it. They’re on display in the hallways. The pictures are so great I thought it would be fun to turn it into a challenge.

Can you name the book based on the student drawing? Click each drawing to reveal the answer.
