2002 Award
Good Thing Youre Not an Octopus!
(by Julie Markes/ illus. by Maggie Smith, HarperCollins $14.95 Score:) An amusing look at how it would be if, say, you were an octopus and had to put on pants with eight legs. Following one boy through a typical day, Markes makes everyday chores seem quite simple, especially when compared with those of sharks, who would have 200 teeth to brush, or a caterpillar with 16 shoes to tie! 3-7

2002 Award
Arithme-tickle
(by J. Patrick/ illus. Frank Remkiewicz, Harcourt $16 Score:) Kids who are nuts about math will relish the word problems in this playful, but challenging book. For the non-math student this may put a funny spin on word problems, but go easy. Some students will see this as no better than a dreaded workbook.

Age: Early School Years,Later School Years. Award Year: 2002.

2003 Award
Apollo
(by Caroline Gregoire, Kane Miller $13.95 Score:) What a funny way to learn about some basic math concepts, with an adorable dog who can be viewed by halves, from above, below, front, back, vertically, horizontally, diagonally, and with great affection. This offers an introduction to some very abstract words using images to make them concrete, humorous, and memorable.

2005 Award
What Time Is It, Mr. Crocodile?
(Judy Sierra/illus. by Doug Cushman, Harcourt $16 Score:) Mr. Crocodile has great plans for every hour of the day, but his schedule is constantly undone by five silly monkeys. Told in breezy rhyme with illustrations that add to the fun, there's a clock on every page that introduces reading the time on the hour. Younger listeners may like the story, but telling time is beyond them. A better choice for 5 & up.

Age: Early School Years. Award Year: 2005.

(by Polly Alakija, Barefoot Books $16.99 Score:) Ayoka was supposed to take care of the family goat. Oh, oh! That runaway goat has gone to the market! In a romp through a Nigerian market, this is a spirited counting book with details to explore on every page, including a sighting of that runaway goat! Lyrical African names and repetitive pattern makes for a fun read aloud! 2-6.

2003 Award
Ten Red Apples: A Bartholomew Bear Counting Book
(by Virginia Miller, Candlewick $13.95 Score:) With each turn of the page, Bartholomew plays under and in a beautiful old apple tree as a small story unfolds. Best of all, the apples on the tree turn red one at a time so there is something new to count at every turn. A concept book that's on the mark for 2–5.

Age: Toddlers,Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2003.
