Crow Boy: 01/24/13
Crow Boy by Taro Yashima is about a boy struggling his way through school. It was a 1956 Caldecott Honor book.
Chibi (small boy) has a hard time in school. He's overly shy. He keeps to himself. He never seems to adjust. When the graduation talent show rolls around, all the students are surprised to see Chibi participating.
The talent show is his chance to shine. And it's the explanation of the book's title. The unnamed narrator, a fellow student, changes his opinion of Chibi as he sees him highlight his talent — talking to crows.
