why this won the award.

I compair this to other picure books beacause it is a good story for every one. And I just dont think othres have this th art is good. So I feel like it is a good book for every body.It is nice how they put so much detail into it. It is cool how at first he wants one for bear skin but then he loves it. And looked sad when he had to leave but he came to se him every day.



Comparing books The Biggest Bear vs This is not my Hat.

Pros: The Biggest Bear. It is a good touching book about a boy who wants bear skin. He finds on but dose not hurt it. So it is nice to se that.


Cons:for the biggest Bear is. Just maybe a little more on what happend when he went to the zoo.


Pros:This is not my hat. This is not my hat is a rush of fun. I mean the fish stals a hat from a big fish and is swimming away. But he thinks every thing is ok but something happens and the big fish eats him.


Cons:I wish the fish did not die but it is ok.
