Caldecott Books in June

Here are the Caldecott Medal Winner books the Ant Bug and I read during the month of June.

1950: Song of the Swallows by Leo Politi
1985: Saint George and the Dragon, illustrated by Trina Schart Hyman; text: retold by Margaret Hodges
1988: Owl Moon, illustrated by John Schoenherr; text: Jane Yolen
2000: Joseph Had a Little Overcoat by Simms Taback
2001: So You Want to Be President? Illustrated by David Small; text by Judith St. George
2007: Flotsam by David Wiesner

The Ant Bug quite enjoyed Flotsam and the Joseph book has long been a favorite at our house. The others got a "just okay" response from her. I really enjoyed the President book.
