Bookworm Buzz-Special Edition

Here is an update on my Caldecott Challenge so far.  I almost done with the 1930s, 1940s and 2010s but am only posting through 1944.  You can find all of my reviews on Goodreads or click on the Goodreads gadget to the right.  I will definitely need to spend a day at the Boston Public Library to read a few of the books from the 1940s which are in storage.  In addition, I have a few chapter books that I am reading and will share them as soon as they are done.  What have you been reading?  Leave a comment and let me know.  If you like one of the Caldecott books that I review, check it out of the library, but be prepared to have to order it, some are not easy to find.

Interesting. Need to read it with an open mind and an awareness of the year 1939.

1942 Caldecott winner. A beautiful story with beautiful pictures. A winner in 1942 and a winner now. So many talk worthy discussions here.
