Our Favorite Children's Books...

Time of Wonder was written and illustrated by Robert McCloskey in 1957 and won the Caldecott Medal in 1958. The book tells the story of a family's summer on a Maine island and is full of bright images - rain, gulls, a foggy morning, the excitement of sailing, the quiet of the night, and the sudden terror of a hurricane! This a great bedtime story - a must read for parents to their children.
