Caldecott Medal Winners

Again, via Our Little Library, a literature list! This time it's the Caldecott Medal winners. I used her star rating system, too. Bolded are ones I own, italicized are ones I've read.

My ratings, because I don't necessarily love or even like all the books on this list. If this was at a library book sale / garage sale / thrift store for $2 or less I would:
****Grab it with a squeal of joy!
***Probably buy it, especially if the library doesn't have a copy.
**Would only buy it if the library didn't have a copy.
*Sorry, I don't like it.
