2010 Award
Ten in a Bed
(by Jane Cabrera, Holiday House $16.95 Score:)

Once again Jane Cabrera puts her own lively stamp on an old song that kids love and learn quickly since the verse is so repetitive. Knowing the words can certainly help beginning readers intuit the connections between words they say/sing and words on the page. There's plenty of county fun in this old ditty.

This new cardboard version will go the distance in the hands of beginning page turners. 3-7.
