Winner of the 2010 Caldecott Medal, this is a nearly wordless adaptation of Aesop's beloved fable. Varied perspectives including panels of close-ups make this a book you want to stop on every page to examine the detail. Words are not needed to show how important friends are- big and small.
Awards won: Caldecott Medal

Little Burro was born in a desert canyon. Her favorite place was a special rock that was cool in the heat of the day and warm at night. One morning, her band of burros started to leave the little canyon. Little Burro didn't want to leave her favorite rock. She called to the other burros to come back, but when her mother called to her, she finally followed. After a long steep climb out of the canyon and another long steep climb down the other side they came to a lake. The burros drank the cool clear water while they cooled their hooves and their legs. Little Burro enjoyed running and splashing in the water so much that she didn't want to leave when it was time to go back home.
