Hot Air: The (Mostly) True Story of the First Hot-Air Balloon Ride

Caldecott Honor 2006

By: Majorie Priceman

We're up at the lake for the week, and the kids got Nonna to read us this Caldecott.

High: I loved the part of this story that was (mostly true). The illustrations of the animals up in the hot-air balloon were humorous, and told a wonderful story without words.

Low: The true parts of this story were long, and my kiddos needed a lot of help to understand. I found the illustrations on these pages to be over detailed and not as much fun to look at as well.
