Week 35 PBID Question

This officer feels that safety is very important. In fact, safety is so important that he visits schools to teach about safety and keeps important safety tips stuck to his bulletin board. Not only that, he gets some of his safety tips from his own experiences, like Safety Tip #77: NEVER stand on a SWIVEL CHAIR.

This officer has over 100 safety tips, but this week's PBID question only wants to know 2 of them.


What are safety tips #34 and #101?

Week 34 PBID Answer

Monday, May 13, 2019

Week 34 PBID Question

There have been a number of PBID questions this year that have come from Caldecott Medal winning books. Each year the Caldecott Medal is given to the best picture book for children. There are usually several Caldecott Honor books (sort of like runners-up) awarded each year as well.

The author/illustrator of this picture book has won a combined SIX Caldecott Medal and Honor awards. SIX! (And yes, this picture is from one of them.) There are only two authors who have won more. That's pretty impressive.


When did this happen?
(What time? What day of the week?)

Week 33 PBID Question

Welcome to May! (And I can't believe it's May already!) Is it just me, or does it seem like this school year has just raced by? Well, the school year might be racing by, but we aren't going as fast as the racer in this week's picture. Look at the expression on her face! She is one determined racer, like it's the last lap and She. Wants. To. WIN!


In a car race, all of the cars usually have numbers. In the book featuring this royal race car driver, who drives the cars with the following numbers? Numbers 2, 3, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 30, and 31-37

Week 32 PBID Question

Okay, boys and girls, this week is a tough question. Actually, it's two questions, and you have to solve the first in order to find the second. And it's going to be tough. I mean, I think it's going to be tough, but sometimes you all surprise me with how quickly you find these answers. We'll see, I guess. Maybe these questions are stumpers.



This board game is found in a Caldecott Medal winning book. What is the name of this board game, and what is the name of the other game found "jammed tightly into the bottom of the box"?

Week 31 PBID Answer

Week 31 PBID Question

I live in a pretty small town, but I like to visit big cities even though it doesn't happen all that much. After all, when the tallest building in your hometown is a paper mill, seeing skyscrapers is pretty cool.

Speaking of visiting big cities, that brings us right into this week's PBID question.


This page from a Caldecott Medal winning book says “Harry drove all the way to the Big City.” What is the name of that city?

Week 30 PBID Question

Summer is coming, and the two boys in this week's picture are making the most of their summer. (And let me tell you, I'm planning to make the most of my summer too. How about you?) Maybe that's a topic for another day. Let's get back to these two boys, shall we?


These two friends stay at Bill and Pam's house. While there the boys attend a week of what?

Week 29 PBID Question

This week's question comes from the oldest book that's been featured in the #PBIDchallenge so far. This book won a Caldecott Medal, and the author was the first person to be awarded the Caldecott Medal twice. (There is also another picture of this duck family somewhere on this website, but I'm not telling where!)

Good luck with the question and good luck finding that other picture!


What are the names of these eight ducklings?

Monday, April 1, 2019

Week 28 PBID Question

Welcome to April! The snow is nearly gone, and spring has started to make an appearance. What better way to start April? Happy April 1, everybody!

There is no video this week to reveal last week's answer, but there is a new question. So if you were on spring break and missed last week's Picture Book Identification Challenge question, you now have two questions for this week, and next week's video will give two answers. That's two picture books to identify, one for March 25 and one for April 1!

Because this is the Picture Book Identification Challenge and today is Monday, April 1. Good luck identifying this picture book.


What is the title of this, eh-hem, picture book?

Week 27 PBID Question

Last week I mentioned that this is spring break week for my school, and since I'm not at school, I wasn't sure if there would be a #PBIDchallenge question. But there are other classes participating in the #PBIDchallenge from schools in other districts! They have been working hard on PBID questions this year, and they deserve a question this week.

So here it is!


Where is this bus's last stop?

Week 26 PBID Answer

Monday, March 18, 2019

Week 26 PBID Question

It's the middle of March, so it's certainly not the first day of school. (Although the first day of spring is right around the corner.) But even in the middle of the year there can be a first day of school. Like for Molly.

Molly lived by her grandmother who gave great advice. Even though Molly was the shortest student in first grade, her grandmother said, "Walk as proudly as you can and the world will look up to you." But then Molly had to say goodbye to grandma and her friends and move to a new town.

That means Molly has a first day. Not the first day of school, but the first day in a new school. This picture shows Molly on her first day at her new school.


When Molly moved to a new school, there was a classmate who called her names and made fun of her. What was the name of that classmate (who learned a very important lesson)?

Week 25 PBID Answer

Monday, March 11, 2019

Week 25 PBID Question

This week's PBID challenge question features one dapper looking fellow. Top hat, black suit, black bow tie ... a person might think that tiger is going to the opera at a super-fancy theater or something. Maybe he is. After all, he is a proper gentleman living in a city of other proper animals that always mind their manners. But things aren't always what they seem.


While this tiger is dressed nicely and appears to be a gentleman, he really wants to loosen up and have fun. According to the book, what does Mr. Tiger want to be?

Week 24 PBID Answer

Monday, March 4, 2019

Week 24 PBID Question

There are so many great picture books, but in my opinion, the best picture books are the ones where you notice new things each time you read them. There's always something new, and it's especially those little details that have been there forever but suddenly surprise you after already reading the book 100 times that make the book stand out.

Take, for example, this week's image for the Picture Book Identification Challenge. I have read this book so many times in the last 25 years, but I never noticed a small detail in this exact image. Look at how those flowers are all wilting. They're falling over like they're dying and all falling away from that cute character. I never noticed that until today.

On to Week 24, and this week there are two questions. You may answer one or the other or both or even answer both questions in two separate comments. Good luck!


What is this cute character's name? What is the name of this book's narrator?
