2002 Award
Turtle Spring
(by Deborah Turney Zagwyn, Tricycle Press $6.95 Score:) Clee's uncle brings her a turtle in the fall. Clee is none too happy about the new baby brother who is staying and her Daddy who is leaving on a job that takes all winter. She's even more unhappy when her turtle seems to disappear all through the long winter with its many kinds of snow. This is a charming young science book about hibernation that also speaks to issues of separation, heartfelt feelings and changes that come with the passing seasons.
