Love this book!!! One of my top three picks for the Caldecott, and only wish more people were aware of it. It is a great story, and the illustrations are beautiful and educational. If you haven't read it yet, find a copy and read it.

I agree, the illustrations are stunning. My favorite is the double page spread of Frances, her face deep in concentration as she prepares for her final shot.
