I realize it looks like I read a lot of picture books. And, it's true, I did read quite a few this past month, considering I don't have any kids. I am trying to become a bit better rounded in my reading of children's lit, and picture books are a huge part of that genre. Of the picture books listed above, Gallop!, and Sector 7 were my favorite.
