Little Black Crow

Written and illustrated by Chris Raschka

  • 2011 Charlotte Zolotow Award Highly Commended Title

Picture a sky
as big as all outdoors,
a fence disappearing over a hill,
a crow then appearing,
a boy looking up,
watching, wondering.
Not much more than a moment
but the meeting
lofts a rush of childhood questions—
27 in all—inspiring answers
as big as all outdoors.

Caldecott medalist Chris Raschka,
himself the boy perhaps,
has created a book in the sparest language
 against the simplest setting,
 to inspire in any young listener
 the wonder of wondering.
