Just loved it! It won the 1953 Caldecott award, and is outstanding. This classic brought me back to a simpler time; a joyful nostalgic trip. I couldn't get enough of the sepia illustrations. What a treat from this great artist. It reminded me of my favorite classics, Blueberries for Sal, and Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey. Love those, you will love this. A joyful book to enjoy with a child in your life. Pick it up and smile.
