Week 38 PBID Answer

Week 38 PBID Question

Here is the final #PBIDchallenge question of the year, and it's the first question to actually be in the picture itself! 

The twenty-fifth and final Elephant and Piggie book is called The Thank You Book. In the book Piggie thanks all the characters that have appeared in an Elephant and Piggie book, from the pelican who helps her fly in the first book (Today I Will Fly!) to the flies who hover around her favorite food in the twenty-fourth book (I Really Like Slop!)

Everybody gets a thank-you! Except . . .


Who did Piggie forget to thank?

Week 37 PBID Answer

Monday, June 3, 2019

Week 37 PBID Question

Today starts the last full week of school in my district, but this will NOT be the last question of the PBID Challenge. Oh, no, no, no! Even though there is only one day of school next week, there will be a question next Monday, and the answer video will be posted on the same day. So check back next Monday for the answer video for Week 37, a new question for Week 38, and another answer video for Week 38.

There will also be some new questions posted over the summer! The new questions will be posted sporadically, but if you're receiving email updates, you'll still get a notice every time there's a new question.

Ok, back to Week 37. If this really was the last ever question of the #PBIDchallenge, then we all might feel like these two guys. Grrrrrrumpy! But these guys are grumpy about something completely different.

    

Why are these guys mad at each other? 
BONUS: What happens to them when they are left outside?

Tuesday, May 28, 2019

Week 36 PBID Question

We all get bumps and bruises and cuts and scrapes (especially in the summertime), and this guy knows exactly what to do to make them feel better. Band-Aids! He even has a box with thirty-five extras just in case he might need 'em. 

May we all be as prepared as him and always have the bandages we need for each and every boo-boo that comes our way. 


According to this boy, where does he have four Band-Aids?

Week 35 PBID Answer

Monday, May 20, 2019

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 Answer

Monday, April 29, 2019

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

Monday, April 22, 2019

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 Answer

Monday, April 15, 2019

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!

Week 27-28 PBID Answer

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?

Week 23 PBID Answer

Monday, February 25, 2019

Week 23 PBID Question

Last week's question included the entire alphabet, or as I wrote, "a disaster of alphabetic proportions!" This week's question includes just one small mouse. But there are so many mice in picture books! What book is this guy from, and what is the answer to Week 23 of the #PBIDchallenge?

This mouse has had a busy day. In fact he has just completed a wonderful picture of his family and hung it on the refrigerator. But when he stands back to look at his picture, he is reminded of something. 


What is this mouse reminded of when he looks at the refrigerator, and what does he ask for to solve his problem?

Week 22 PBID Question

On to Week 22 of the Picture Book Identification Challenge, and this week features all the letters of the ... OH, NO!!! It's a disaster of alphabetic proportions! My goodness, look at that pile up of letters!

Whew! All of the letters had their parents or an aunt or uncle come to take care of them, and everyone is going to be okay. Despite that dramatic pile up of letters, there are only a few small boo-boos. Speaking of boo-boos, here's the Week 22 question. 


What was E's injury?

Week 21 PBID Answer

Monday, February 11, 2019

Week 21 PBID Question

It's hard to believe we have already completed 20 weeks of the Picture Book Identification Challenge. TWENTY WEEKS! I'm looking forward to all the questions coming up in the future! How about you?

Before we get to this week's picture and question, let me take a moment to welcome some new visitors. Last week I was in Milwaukee for the Wisconsin State Reading Association's annual convention, and I introduced the #PBIDchallenge to a bunch of teachers. So to all the teachers and students checking out the #PBIDchallenge for the first time, welcome! Good luck with Week 21! (Even if it is only Week 1 for you.)

Take a look at this picture. See the ladybug? That's one brave ladybug. Or a not-very-smart ladybug. Or a something-something-else ladybug because it challenged the lobster to a fight! Please answer two questions about the following image.


According to the book, what kind of ladybug is this? Also, at what time did the ladybug challenge the lobster to a fight?

Week 20 PBID Answer

Monday, February 4, 2019

Week 20 PBID Question

Last week it was FREEZING cold here in Wisconsin, so our picture was a young girl and her father all bundled up to keep warm on a winter day. This week continues the theme of cold weather, only this girl and her grandmother stayed inside during the cold.

The author of the book that this image comes from has won many awards. She has won a Newbery Honor four times, a Caldecott Honor for the book that this image is from, and is the current National Ambassador for Young People's Literature.


This girl misses Mama, but Grandma says, Your mama's gonna be coming on home soon. Mama moved to Chicago for a job. What is the job Mama says she will be doing while she is gone?

Week 19 PBID Answer

Week 19 PBID Question

I'm a day late with this week's question for the #PBIDchallenge because we were home for a snow day! We got a lot of snow, and now it is supposed to get windy and COLD. Temperatures are forecast to be below zero from today until Friday and could get as low -30°. Everyone in Wisconsin is going to need to dress warm, maybe like the people in this week's image.


It looks like this little girl and her Pa are yelling something, but they are not. What are they doing?

Week 18 PBID Question

Last week's question was one where even if you knew the character and the book, you still probably had to do some research to find the answer to the question. This week should be the same. You might recognize the image. Maybe you remember the author and illustrator. But do you know the answer to the question without looking? Let's see...


What are the names of the two waving dolls (the bunny and the kitten)?

Week 17 PBID Answer

Week 17 PBID Question

I'm guessing many of you recognized the character in last week's image, and a lot of people remembered what he had left at the end of the book. The answer is repeated several times in the text. But this week's question is a little different.

Even if you recognize this character, and even if you recognize the book or series the picture is from, I still think this question could be a stumper. Let's see if you're up to the challenge.


What is the title of the movie this character is watching?

Ready or not, here comes the PBID question for Week 16!


At the end of this book, this boy has a dopey deck of cards, a one-eyed bear, a melted candle ... and what else?
