Favorite Picture Book & Activity -2nd Grade

What is your favorite picture book and activity to use with your second grade class? I have a lot of great chapter books and activity suggestions, but I was wondering about picture books.
Here are two books I already use. I would love to get some new ideas.

At the beginning of the year I use "The Dot" by Peter Reynolds. After using the book each student makes a dot with an illustration showing how they are unique.

Where the Wild Things Are is another book I use. We read it and then do a readers theatre with the story. The kids also make their own wild thing mask and then I have a webiset that they use to create their own wild thing print out. After they make their own wild thing they have to write a description of it.
