2009 Awards
Rock & Roll Colors
(by Salina Yoon, Scholastic $7.99 Score:)

An oblong cardboard book with thick pages that allow a color disk to slide from one side of the page to another, coloring the two objects pictures. So on the red page it slides from a strawberry to a ladybug. This is novelty book that does not include orange, brown or black. That said, this is a fun book for developing color awareness, knowing and naming and sheer fun in making something happen. 9 months & up.

Age: Infants, Toddlers. Award Year: 2009.

2007 Award
Sam's Winter Hat
(by Albert Lamn/ illus. by David McPhail , Scholastic $6.99 Score:) Winter has come and Sam is lucky to have a fine red coat, green fuzzy mittens and a blue wooly hat. But as he loses each of his things there is a repetitive rhythm to the little story that toddlers will soon catch onto and enjoy. Too bad the red coat is not as red as red should be. Itís a short and sweet story for 2 & up.

Age: Toddlers. Award Year: 2007.
