really liked it
bookshelves: award-winner, childrens-lit-pic

Alas, my Wednesday Night Working with Celeste on the Kids Floor will be moved to Thursdays, until further notice.

I don't know what other books were competing for the Caldecot for 1958, but this book is really charming.

I like the bold graphics and simple colors, but the detail and clean lines were beautiful.

A cute Aesop-ish tale, taken and adapted from the Canterbury Tales. The story itself is deeper than many picture books today. I liked that it actually had difficult vocabulary words as it's never too early to start building a robust vocabulary for your children.
