lIlustrated Friday: They Were Strong and Good

This book is one of those titles that's included in libraries and collections because it won a major award a long time ago, but that probably wouldn't get much of a second glance today. Sure, the artistry is good, and the images and portraits of the people are detailed and involved, but the stories included aren't really all that memorable (the book tells stories about various members of Mr. Lawson's family.) I'm including it here for thoroughness as I wander through the list of Caldecott winners, but this one (the 1940 winner) isn't one I think many kids would enjoy.

Happy Friday!
