Children's book icon Margaret Wise Brown - writer of the cherished classic Goodnight Moon - and Caldecott Medal-winner Leonard Weisgard bring young readers an enduring picture book about the magic of nature.

Winner of the 1947 Caldecott Medal, this beautifully moving story centers around a little island in the midst of the wide ocean, and the curious kitten who comes to visit. As the seasons pass, the island and the creatures who call it home witness an ever-changing array of sights, smells, and sounds - proving that, no matter how small, we are all an important part of the world.

I used to read this book all the time when I was little. It has beautiful illustrations. I recommend this book to families with young children.
