Here's an example of the sort of book that the Caldecott types would miss--but no parent of a small child should.

This is a deceptively simple book. As my all-knowing :) assistant points out, there are more words in the jacket flap description than there are in the text!

And there ARE only 5 words in the text--the first 4 are in the title. But what amazing things can be done with just those 5 little words, arranged in different combinations! The illustrations are just right too--not perfectly colored, so that they stray over the borders just as a young child might do and make this even more child friendly.

Perfect in every way, right down to the bold print that would make this equally suited for a very early reader, and the illustrations on their end papers. Put down "sophisticated" stuff for a few minutes and enjoy this gem!
