2004 Award
Te Amo, Bebe, Little One
(by Lisa Wheeler/ illus. by Maribel Suarez, Little Brown $15.95 Score:) Mamas are going to love this tender and lyrical chronicle of a baby growing from newborn to big one-year old toddler. In fact, it may be more of a sentimental journey for Mamas than babies. However, little listeners like to hear stories of when they were little and they are sure to enjoy the very special little love song she sings at each stage-which happens to be quite reminiscent of the lyrical verse of Maurice Sendak’s classic Chicken Soup & Rice. 3 & up.

Age: Preschool. Award Year: 2004.

2004 Award
Please Say Please
(by Margery Cuyler/ illus. by Will Hillenbrand, Scholastic $15.95 Score:) Learning good manners comes best by example, not a book, but children will see the upside-down humor of this dinner party. Should pig wipe his muddy hooves on the tablecloth? Of course not, but as each of the animals arrive they do something ridiculous that makes the young listener feel so wise and above the fray. 3 & up.

Age: Preschool. Award Year: 2004.
