Caldecott Honors

Well, today I read Hot Air : The (Mostly) True Story of the First Hot-Air Balloon Ride written and illustrated by Marjorie Priceman, which was the only Caldecott book I hadn't seen so far. I liked this story that was light (but chock full of information) about the first hot air balloon ride (taken by a sheep, a duck, and a rooster) but I like how the only words spoken during the event-filled journey are "baa" "cluck" and "quack", letting the pictures tell the story. Delightul and deserving.
