My own favorite Caldecott Award winner. I talked about this one in my Special Edition episode about the illustrator, Barbara Cooney. If you're looking to add just one book to your autumn home library, make it this one! (RAR Premium members, on 11/1/21, you'll find a Family Book Club Guide for you about this one right here!)


The ox-cart man packs his goods, travels over hills, through valleys, by streams, past farms and villages. At Portsmouth Market he sells his goods, one by one- even his beloved ox. Then, with his pockets full of coins, he returns home, and the cycle begins again.
