Examples of picture book dummies?

Discussion started on

Hello! I'm currently in the process of finishing a picture book dummy to send out to agents and I was wondering if there was a resource where others have shared previous examples. Or maybe just snippets from their dummy book?

I'm unsure of how polished the sketches should be. Outside of a couple finished pages, should the rest of the book be... loose thumbnails? detailed sketches? grayscale layouts with backgrounds? 

Any advice would be MUCH appreciated!

Debbie Ohi has a lot of resources on her website: https://debbieohi.com/
I found this doing a visual search: http://kidlitartists.blogspot.com/2011/05/20-steps-to-writing-childrens-book-by.html
Happy browsing! And good luck with your dummy.
