Caldecott Books in May

Here are the Caldecott Medal Winner books the Ant Bug and I read during the month of May. The books we enjoyed and will likely read again are marked large.

This book has been well-loved in our family ever since Eliza first introduced us to it at the Provo Library in 2006. It's a wonderful book.
