Jeez, the moment when you turn the page and she has grown up and gone to Africa and it's that famous picture of her greeting the baby chimpanzee with the back of her hand... took my breath away. This SHOULD be Patrick McDonnell's Caldecott. (Also for the tiny subtle look of shock on her face after she has hidden in the henhouse to observe where eggs come from. I would look shocked too.)
