Seven Spools of Thread
((by Angela S. Medearis/illus. by Daniel Minter), Whitman $15.95 Score:) In a village in Ghana, seven brothers quarrel from day to night. When their father dies he leaves his possessions to them only if by sundown they can turn seven spools of colored thread into gold. Although this is called a Kwanzaa story, it is a timeless and memorable tale about working together for a common good. In this case, they create the very special woven Kente cloth that they sell for gold in the market. A memorable pour quoi-style tale with striking woodcuts filled with the symbols of Kwanzaa. 5 & up.

2008 Awards
Robert Crowther Pop-Up House of Inventions
(by Robert Crowther, Candlewick $17.99 Score:)

Kids often don't even think about the fact that there have not always been zippers, email, mirrors or soap. In a clever pop-up format, Crowther creates six typical rooms of a house and labels the many typical items in each room with thumbnail bits of information about inventions. This update is not radically different from the original. It's still a fun book for sparking an interest in history and how things were. 6 & up.

Age: Early School Years, Later School Years. Award Year: 2008. Click here to purchase the product on Amazon.com.
