I've read a lot of books on photography. So, when I saw this book, the title immediately caught my eye. I looked through it and immediately knew I should pick this up to read to my children. It was funny, they laughed, and, I really enjoyed it because it drives home a really fundamental concept of photography. My kids always get a laugh out of the ending; and, the illustrations are great. It's a fun book to read.
I highly recommend it.

Format: Paperback
This book was read to me as a child by my father. It taught me a lesson that keeping things simple in life is the key. The phrase "simple Pictures are best" was used in my home from the age of 6 to 21. Anytime I would ask my parents there opinion regarding an outfit I was wearing or an ensamble I was puting together my father would say "simple pictures are best" . I am now 26 and have a baby of my own on the way.I always smile and laugh when I am getting dressed or buying an outfit for my son to be and think of my father saying that key phrase.I just ordered a used version of this book from the 1980's so I can read it to my son in utero. Of all the books that were read to me as a child I have the fondest memories of this book and the lesson that I learned is so valuable.

Wonderful story. Introduces photography in the early 1900s in a funny way while giving a glimpse into the life of a farming family. Pictures are delightful as always by dePaola.

Format: Hardcover
A great, slightly silly book with a hidden educational message.

So good, it has become a long-running family trope, "Simple pictures are best" will live in our kids minds as "That thing my parents were always telling me".
