Read20 Selection for September: Tops & Bottoms

Tops and Bottoms, a Caldecott Honor Book by Janet Stevens, is the Read20 Selection for September. Bear has lots of land and lives comfortably, but he is not a hard worker. Hare and Mrs. Hare are hungry, and they come up with a plan: Hare will plant Bear’s crops if Bear agrees to share half of the produce. All Bear has to choose is the half of the crop he wants—tops or bottoms. Bear chooses to take tops, but he discovers that he might have been outsmarted by clever Hare!
