On My Bookshelf: A Tree is Nice

The weather has been crazy this week. It has been so hot and steamy, yesterday it got up to 100! We have been spending a lot of time indoors, sketching, reading and watching Netflix. I was scouring my bookshelves trying to find a cool, summery book to share and found this little gem.

A Tree is Nice by Janice May Udry, illustrated by Marc Simont published by Harper & Brothers in 1956. This book won the Caldecott Medal in 1957.

I just love Marc Simont's work, he illustrated the Nate the Great books, and one of my childhood favorites, The Philharmonic Gets Dressed.
