2008 Award
Klutz Build a Book
(Klutz $12.95 Score:) There are two versions of this book making kit. Both are guided book making with suggested art and materials provided to make the pages that show our family, favorite things, stuff you like to do and friends. Sure, your child can make this kind of book without buying a kit, but this one is spiral bound and provides some inspiration. Another version of the book that is titled “All About My Family.” These are the kinds of projects that get better with age. More fun to look at 10 years from now than they may be when the glue is still drying.

Age: Early School Years. Award Year: 2008.

2008 Award
The Little Bit Scary People
(by Emily Jenkins/ illus. by Alexandra Boiger, Hyperion $14.99 Score:) First impressions can be wrong—no doubt about that. This may take the concept too far, but it is a good talking book that parents and teachers can use to talk about not jumping to conclusions. 6 & up. littlebitscarypeople.jpg

2008 Award
My Dad, John McCain
(by Meghan McCain/ illus. by Dan Andreasen, Simon & Schuster $16.99 Score:) Told in the first person, this daughter’s telling of her father’s life story is kept simple and straightforward. Of course, the first marriage and family are left out of this telling. A surprising omission, given the huge number of kids who know all about divorces and having step siblings. The overriding message of this biography is that Meghan’s dad never gives up fighting for what he believes in.

2008 Award
Abe's Honest Words
(by Doreen Rappaport/ illus. by Kadir Nelsonby Matt, Hyperion $16.99 Score:) Stunning illustrations add much to this telling of Lincoln's life and his memorable words. It is not an in depth biography, but gives young readers an overview of his life from boyhood on to the political stage and his views of slavery and his determination to hold save the Union. Kadir Nelson's illustrations are infused with light and drama that intensify the mood of Lincoln's inspiring words.
