Picture Books for the IB PYP Learner Profiles

I have been collecting children’s books for over 20 years.  I have organized them in several different ways during that time- by theme, by author, by holiday. You name it, I have tried it. Now that I am teaching the Primary Years Program in an International Baccalaureate school (IB), I have decided to organize much of my collection and new acquisitions by the Learner Profiles as seen below.

I hope this list is a bit more up-to-date than some of the others out there.  I am constantly getting new titles and adding to this list so check back often for new titles.
