Charlie does not like school. In fact one Sunday night he wishes that he could be a like his dog, Norman.

2013 Award
Tallulah's Toe Shoes
(by Marilyn Singer/ illus Alexandra Boiger, Clarion $16.99 Score:)

Tallulah, like so many other little ballerinas is longing to toe shoes, the kind that real ballerinas wear when they dance on pointe. Not content to wait, as everyone tries to tell her she must, she takes home a pair of discarded slippers and makes some sad discoveries. Unlike so many ballet stories, this one ends on a hopeful note with a nod to the bigger idea that some things you have to wait for and can't happen instantly.

Age: Preschool, Early School Years. Award Year: 2013.

2009 Award
Duck! Rabbit!
(by Amy Krouse Rosenthal & Tom Lichtenheld, Chronicle $16.99 Score:)

Good fun here with an optical illusion that goes from duck to rabbitódepending on how you look at it. This is both a funny idea and one that also introduces a big idea about the eye of the beholder. It starts out as a funny little argument and ends on the possibility that otherís point of view just might be true. A big idea! 3 & up.
