Little Black Crow

Little Black Crow

Illustrated by: Chris Raschka
For Ages: 4 - 7
  • 3
Combining unfussy, gently rhyming language with vibrant, airy illustrations, Caldecott Medalist Chris Raschka has created a book that will inspire in young readers the wonder of wondering. A little boy wonders about a crow’s life—from the simple “Where do you go in the cold white snow?” to the not-so-simple “Do you ever worry when you hop and you hurry? Are you ever afraid of mistakes you made? Are you never afraid?”

All of life is touched on in simple words and spare, elegant artwork. Little Black Crow is not to be missed.
