When we heard the announcement of this year's Caldecott winners, we just had to check out this book. We have read all of the Caldecott Medal winners and are now working our way through the rest of the Caldecott Honor books, too.

"Reading" this wordless book with our girls was fun and we enjoyed taking turns talking about what is going on in the illustrations, but honestly I wasn't all that impressed. It was cute, but I'm somewhat surprised at the Caldecott nod. The illustrations were expressive and colorful and effectively conveyed the story without narrative; it's a good story, but not great.
