2009 Award
Just Like Bossy Bear
(by David Horvath, Hyperion $14.99 Score:) Turtle, his best friend, is copying Bossy Bear’s nasty ways. Seeing how Turtle behaves, Bossy Bear decides he’d better set a better example. Even the youngest listener is likely to “get” the idea here and maybe even supply the missing “pleases”. One can hope! 2 1/2 and up.

2009 Award
I Love Grandma
(by Lizi Boyd, Candlewick $8.99 Score:) A sturdy book with heavy card paper that won’t rip when shared on a visit to Grandma’s. There is also a Grandpa, Mommy and Daddy version in the series. The young storyteller is a green frog who goes to Grandma’s when parents are away. It’s very much a here and now story of the ordinary things they do. Here Granny is on the silly side, so this is a light and entertaining little book for young listeners 2-4.
