2007 Award
Museum Trip
(by Barbara Lehman, Houghton Mifflin $15 Score:) A wordless gem of an adventure. On a class trip to the museum, a boy gets separated from his group. While looking for them, he finds his way into a small room. There he finds a collection of mazes on display and is transformed to fit into the mazes. As the young reader finds the path through the mazes he and the boy save themselves and leave the museum triumphant. In fact, the young hero of the story and the museum guard both wear the same golden medal. Another winner from the author of The Red Book. 5 & up.

2008 Award
Yoko Writes Her Name
(by Rosemary Wells, Hyperion $15.99 Score:) Yoko is excited to be going to Kindergarten, but when she gets there she is not so happy any more. Her writing in Japanese is seen as scribbling by classmates who tell her she will not graduate. Not to worry. This is a good one for talking about misinformation that often creates the kind of needless worry Yoko has in this little drama. As always, Rosemary Wells’ artwork adds much to the little story. 3-6.

Age: Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2008.
