The Little Island

Margaret Wise Brown and Leonard Weisgard

“Goodnight Moon author Margaret Wise Brown and Caldecott Medal winner Leonard Weisgard team up to create a classic picture book about nature’s magic for young readers.

This exquisitely poignant tale, which was awarded the 1947 Caldecott Medal, is about a tiny island in the middle of a vast ocean and the curious kitty that comes to visit. The island and the creatures who live there experience an ever-changing variety of sights smells, and sounds as the seasons change, demonstrating that everyone is a vital component of the planet, no matter how small they may be.”
