Siesta de Tres Añosby Dianne Snyder, Allen Say (Illustrator)
This witty tale from Japan was awarded Caldecott Honors in 1989. The story's hero, Taro, has earned his nickname because of his laziness and penchant for sleeping. When he turns trickster to stop his mother's nagging, she in turn outwits him. Caldecott winner Allen Say's drawings clearly show his Japanese heritage. An outstanding selection for introducing Asian cultures.
