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!

Nursery Rhyme Books
(Sassy $12 Score:) These vinyl books—Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star; Rock-a-Bye Baby; and I’m a Little Teapot—can be enjoyed with sound on or off.

Another book, Baby’s Book of Small Talk, is a knowing-and-naming book showing single objects on each page, with accompanying text written in English, Spanish, or French—take your choice. (800) 323-6336.

Art

Here is a child who loves art and his mother, who loves both the child and his art. 3 & up.

Age: Preschool. Award Year: 2007.

2007 Award
Elusive Moose
(by Joan Gannij/illus. by Clare Beaton, Barefoot Books $15.99 Score:) A charming moose hunt that your child will enjoy. Lilting verse follows the animals in our far north. Careful lookers will find a moose on every page and enjoy Beaton’s appliqué art. A glossary of the animals at the end gives this an information edge. Same idea arrived late with lots of playful language and a moose to find in Looking for a Moose (by Phyllis Root/illus. by Randy Cecil, Candlewick $15.99 ). Both are winning choices! 3 & up.

Age: Preschool. Award Year: 2007.
