Find the Frog
(Manhattan Toy $18 Score:)

A cute fabric book with interesting textures for touchy-feelie explorations and peek-a-boo discoveries hidden behind a pull down satiny lily pad, green felt grass, grey cotton “rock,  green satin leaf, blue shimmery “water” and colorful butterfly wings. There’s lots to talk about, touch and find in this little book for lapsitters.

2009 Award
Mommy & Daddy Hugs & Kisses
(by Anne Gutman and Georg Hallensleben, Chronicle $19.99 Score:)

A cute set of board books about babies and their parents. Each book shows animal pairs and ends with baby and Mommy or Daddy. Not much story here, but the art is charming and the concepts are warm and fuzzy. The box is designed so that you can put photos of the little one’s parents on each side of the box…a little extra touch. 1 & up.

Amazing Baby: Baby, Boo!
(Emma Dodd, Silver Dolphin Books $12.95 Score:)

Share this big cardboard book with baby while you are both sitting or stretched out on the floor. It’s a wonderful collection of baby photos that will bring smiles of recognition to your own baby. Each two page spread features a few words that describe the action with a big photograph on the facing page to match.  Try making some of these faces yourself as you read the words and look at the photos together. This ends with a mirror so baby can see your favorite little face!

2009 Award
Carry Me
(by Rena D. Grossman, Star Bright Books $6.95 Score:)

Babies all over the world are carried about. Told in simple verse this catalogs with handsome color photos parents and babies being carried in blankets, baskets, and backpacks, among others. A glossary shows the countries and photos from the book. Though the geography is well beyond the intended audience this is a beautiful multicultural book that is printed on sturdy cardboard stock that little children can enjoy independently once you have shared it with them.  Babies do love looking at other babies and these are exceptionally colorful photographs and lovely to look at!

1994 Awards
Where's Spot?
(by Eric Hill, Putnam $11.95 Score:)

Spot the pup is missing! Where can he be? Lift the flaps and see! This is the original title in the granddaddy series of lift the flap books. There are dozens of variations with Spot searching for friends, hats, books, you-name-it. They work best when the objects are familiar and easy for young children to identify.  Not much story in these little books, but the suspense is toddler-sized. These are well done small mysteries with just the right size and suspense for young page turners.  Be prepared: Little hands may not be able to lift without a rip. The boardbook versions may be a sturdier choice, but some are hard for little fingers,too. Read befroe you buy. This is a well loved but uneven series-some are much better than others.
