  2. Beautiful book for small children.

  3. If I do simply approach The Little Island with regard to Leonard Weisgard s evocatively painterly, nature imbued illustrations, I can both easily and without any doubt understand the 1947 Caldecott Medal designation for the illustrations are truly absolutely exquisite, presenting a delightful combination of both reality and descriptive esoteric splendor, of a tiny island, a tiny spot of nature and its flora and fauna throughout a given year, throughout the four seasons.However and all the abov If I do simply approach The Little Island with regard to Leonard Weisgard s evocatively painterly, nature imbued illustrations, I can both easily and without any doubt understand the 1947 Caldecott Medal designation for the illustrations are truly absolutely exquisite, presenting a delightful combination of both reality and descriptive esoteric splendor, of a tiny island, a tiny spot of nature and its flora and fauna throughout a given year, throughout the four seasons.However and all the above having been said, Margaret Wise Brown s accompanyin...

  10. I had never heard of this book, until I picked it up for my Caldecott Challenge I think it is another excellent example of a better book as compared to Goodnight Moon It won the 1947 Caldecott Award In this book, the reader learns about a little island, as told by the island itself The little island goes through all four seasons, as the reader observes how the the plant and animal life on the island changes as the year progresses I also liked how the cat who comes with a couple to the isl I had never heard of this book, until I picked it up for my Caldecott Challenge I think it is another excellent example of a better book as compared to Goodnight Moon It won the 1947 Caldecott Award In this book, the reader learns about a little island, as told by the island itself The little island goes through all four seasons, as the reader observes how the the plant and animal life on the island changes as the year progresses I also liked how the cat who comes with a couple to the island learns about faith and how the island is a part of the world, even though it is far away from everything I love the painted illustrations, that along so well with the text My favorite is that of the pair of kingfishers It is interesting to note that Leonard Weisgard, who illustrated t...
