Uri Shulevitz won the 1969 Caldecott Medal for his The Fool of the World and the Flying Ship, but I like this book even better. Dawn is a simple meditation on the coming of morning light, illustrated through natural images and told through the story of an old man and his grandson waking from their campsite and launching a boat onto a lake. Just beautiful. Fine in dust jacket. First edition.
