2006 Award
Carl's Sleepy Afternoon
(Farrar Straus $12.95 Score:) This mostly wordless book is just begging for a child storyteller to interpret the illustrations and tell the story of Carl’s very busy afternoon when he did everything but sleep. Wordless books like this are perfect for the beginning storyteller. It is not likely to be told twice in the same words and each time the story is apt to grow fuller. 4–8.

Age: Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2006.

2006 Award
Duck's Skates
(by Lynne Berry/illus. by Hiroe Nakata, Holt $15.95 Score:) A lively romp as five little ducks wake up to find a snowy day. Told in zippy rhyme, this captures the flavor of a winter day of fun topped with cups of cocoa and a cozy ending. 3 & up.

Age: Preschool. Award Year: 2006.

2006 Award
Tacky and the WInter Games
(by Helen Lester/illus. by Lynn Munsinger, Houghton Mifflin $16 Score:) Everybody’s favorite penguin is back. This time, Tacky is a member of a team trying to get in shape. But Tacky has his own idea of how to do that and the results are not exactly what his teammates had in mind. Lively language and images—with silly antics that make up for the lackluster ending. 4 & up.

Age: Preschool. Award Year: 2006.

2006 Award
If You Give a Pig a Party
(by Laura Numeroff/illus. by Felicia Bond, HarperCollins $15.99 Score:) Once again, this award-winning team has come up with a universal theme and what one expects will be predictable outcomes—but soon after the balloons, the book takes a left turn as Pig and her friend go looking for Pig’s friends and end up at a street fair. One surprise follows another in this newest addition to a fine series. 4 & up.

Age: Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2006.

2006 Award
The Witch's Walking Stick
(by Susan Meddaugh, Houghton Mifflin $16 Score:) With an economy of words and lively illustrations, the creator of Martha, the talking dog, has created a new cast of winning characters: a nasty witch who gets her comeuppance, and a little sister who teaches her older siblings a few lessons. Meddaugh takes familiar fantasy material and makes it fresh with her own brand of humor. Her art and wit make her a worthy successor to William Steig. 5 & up.

Age: Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2006.

Because Your Daddy Loves You
(by Andrew Clements/illus. by R.W. Alley, Clarion $16 Score:) How refreshing! A Daddy book that follows a patient and loving daddy through the day. Dad avoids saying the typical critical remarks, but Clements has it both ways; he says what the daddy didn’t say and then what he really does say as he kindly makes a day at the beach a happy time together. In a way, Clements models some great parenting strategies along with a pleasing story. 3–5.

Age: Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2006.

Here Comes Grandma!
(by Janet Lord/illus. by Julie Paschkis, Holt $12.95 Score:) It doesn’t matter if Grandma has to hike, bike, drive, or fly—she’s coming to see her darlings! Charming illustrations of an old-fashioned babushka’s granny who is thoroughly modern and ready to rumble if it will lead to her darling grandchild! 3 & up.

2006 Award
Mama Panya's Pancakes
(By Mary and Rich Chamberlin/illus. by Julia Cairns, Barefoot Books $16.99 Score:) Adika seems to be two steps ahead of his Mama as he invites too many people to join them for pancakes for dinner. Set in a village in Kenya, with many sights to see, this charming storybook unfolds its tale of generosity being rewarded. You can identify animals in the glossary or whip up a batch of pancakes with Mama Panya’s recipe. 4–8.

Age: Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2006.
