2006 Award
Grandpa's Angel
(by Jutta Bauer, Candlewick $12.99 Score:) Grandpa’s reminiscences about his adventures through his long life are all the more outrageous as one sees his guardian angel protecting him from all sorts of danger, including the Nazis during WWII. Bauer’s view of the world is decidedly cup-more-full-than-empty—a joy in the adventure that is being passed along to his fortunate grandson. 7 & up.

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!
