This Is Not My Hat – Winner of the 2013 Caldecott Medal Award

Winner of the 2013 Caldecott Medal Award

I think I would be remiss if I did not mention Jon Klassen and his little gem of a book This Is Not My Hat, to you. After all, it did win the Caldecott Medal for Illustration for 2013!  It is a gorgeous little under the sea book because, after all, it is dark down there in the deep, deep sea. But even though the colors are soft and muted, you and your child, I know, will feel as though you too are swimming along side little fish as he and “the hat” make their escape deep into the weeds and plants!

Really, there is not much for me to say here…I will leave you to draw your own conclusions as to the fate of the little fish – if you feel so compelled leave me a message and let me know what you think happens to him…enquiring minds want to know!
