Beth Krommes’s Favorite Caldecott

yolen owlmoon Beth Krommess Favorite CaldecottMy favorite Caldecott book is Owl Moon (1988), written by Jane Yolen and illustrated by John Schoenherr. I admire its elegant compositions, masterful watercolor and pen technique, the beauty of its blue and brown palette, and its gentle depiction of farm and woodland. It moves me every time I read it.
