Picture Day Books for Kids
Picture Day Perfection
It’s picture day, and the boy at the center of this charming picture book wants to make sure his picture is perfect. It seems as though everything’s going wrong for him―he has bedhead, a stained shirt, and a big scowl on his face. But when he goes up for his picture, he thinks about his terrible appearance, and he smiles―because he secretly wants his picture to be the worst ever taken! But just as he smiles, the photo is snapped and his plan is ruined―the photo looks great.
The Class Picture Day from the Black Lagoon
Picture day is here and the whole class is ready to “say cheese.” But Hubie isn’t interested in getting his photo snapped. His hair won’t stay in place and he doesn’t know what pose to choose. He can’t tell which is his good side. Can Hubie face his fears about his face? Grab some activities to pair with this book here.
Amira’s Picture Day
Ramadan has come to an end, and Amira can’t wait to stay home from school to celebrate Eid. There’s just one hiccup: it’s also school picture day. How can Amira be in two places at once?
Picture Day Jitters
The class photo is scheduled for the end of the day—can everyone’s favorite teacher, Sarah Jane Hartwell, keep them looking neat and tidy? She has the jitters again! Mrs. Hartwell is determined to keep her students looking perfect for their school pictures. This means no chalk at recess, no experiments during science, and eating lunch in the classroom instead of the cafeteria. Bo-ring! By the end of the day, the students look their best, but their smiles are missing. Mrs. Hartwell lets them cut loose after their individual photos are taken, forgetting that the class photo is still to come!

On Account of the Gum
When a child goes to sleep with gum in their mouth, it seems inevitable that the gum will end up in their hair. The natural next step is to seek advice on how to remove the gum, from the Internet and family members, which proves to be disastrous. As objects accumulate in the child’s hair, they become more and more frustrated. To make matters worse, it is not only the child’s birthday but also school picture day!
Mrs. Toggle’s Class Picture Day
When Mrs. Toggle’s bad hair day coincides with class picture day, her students, the custodian, the nurse, the art teacher, the librarian, and the principal all try to improve the situation.
It was BIG, it was BAD, it was…BEDHEAD! No doubt about it, Oliver’s having a very bad hair day. His parents and sister try to help. They push, they pull, they spritz and they spray; they goop, they glop, and they mousse. But Oliver’s hair is still way out of control. And today’s class picture day! What’s a boy to do?
