Top 10 Circulated Picture Books

What picture books were popular with students during the 2016-2017 school year?  Travis Jonker is an elementary school librarian in Michigan and the author of School Library Journal’s 100 Scope Notes.  He recently posted his student’s favorite picture books.  I was curious about my elementary school, so here are my student’s top 10 most circulated picture books of the 2016-2017 school year:
