Little Black Crow

by Chris Raschka

Published by A Richard Jackson Book / Atheneum, 2010
32 pages
ISBN: 978-0-689-84601-4

Ages 4-7

A young boy sitting on a fencepost wonders about a little black crow he sees. His questions are wide-ranging as he speculates on everything from the weather and the crow’s family to more serious considerations. “Are you ever afraid of mistakes you’ve made?” Rhyming and repetition create a musical cadence to the boy’s musings, inviting participation in narrative that works its way to the heart of what matters: the little boy’s sense of self and his place in the world. Watercolor and ink illustrations complement this contemplative book. Highly Commended, 2011 Charlotte Zolotow Award  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
