Award-Winning Children's Books to Give in 2013

This Is Not My Hat, 2013 childrens book

This Is Not My Hat


By Jon Klassen
Price: $12.99; Ages: 4 and up

This deadpan-funny cautionary tale won the 2013 Caldecott Medal and is an ALSC 2013 Notable Children's Book. A little fish thinks he can get away with stealing a lethargic big fish's bowler hat — but he might end up "on the hook" for it. The story reads like a reverse version of the author's 2011 award-winning book, I Want My Hat Back.
