2006 Award
Little Stevie Wonder
(by Quincy Troupe/illus. by Lisa Cohen, Houghton Mifflin $18 Score:) Stevie Wonder’s story is told in lyrical prose. It’s a bit over the top, but just may be an inspiring book for a child who is musical or blessed with some other gift. There is a very short CD with this book—only two songs on the disk—which might be disappointing to someone who doesn’t read the fine print!
