2005 Awards
Feet Are Not for Kicking
(by Elizabeth Verdick illus. by Marieka Heinlen, Free Spirit Publishing $7.95 Score:) A fine sequel to Hands Are Not for Hitting and Teeth Are Not for Biting. A short but sure message that counts all the good things feet can do that is followed with what they should not do. The art is at times a bit awkward, but that will not bother the audience for this book, toddlers and young preschoolers. This is a good choice for more extended discussions. Backmatter includes tips for parents and caregivers. 2 and a half & up.

Age: Toddlers,Preschool. Award Year: 2005.

Diddle, Diddle Dumpling and Little Miss Muffet
(illus. by Tracey Campbell Pearson, Farrar Straus $5.95 Score:) Lively illustrations of a toddler take these simple rhymes out of the relm of nonsense verse and into the world of here and now without being scary. A charming way to give both of these old Mother Goose rhymes a new life. 1 & up.

Age: Infants,Toddlers. Award Year: 2005.

2006 Award
A Truck Goes Rattley-Bumpa
(Holt $14.95 Score:) Older toddlers and preschoolers love trucks and this is a perfect choice to satisfy that enthusiasm. Told in rhyme with bold primary colors, London introduces the bigger concept of the many kinds of trucks and the things they do. Younger than the wonderful concept book, "Truck Song", this is sure to win favor with those who are ready for a little more information found in the vehicles in a Donald Crews' book, but not so much that it goes over their heads. 2 & up.

Age: Toddlers,Preschool. Award Year: 2006.

2006 Awards
Off to Bed & Out to Play
(created by Michel Blake/photos by Trish Grant, Candlewick $5.99 Score:) Cleverly designed knowing and naming books with black and white photographs and featured object in full color. Edges of the cardboard pages are staggered for easy turning, although we didn’t find them that much easier. It’s something like still life shots from Pleasantville for the toddler set.

Age: Infants,Toddlers. Award Year: 2006.

2006 Awards
What's That Sound?
(Soft Play $6.99 Score:) Ernie wants to know what to call each of the items that makes a special sound in this cloth book. There’s a squeaky duck, a ringing phone, a choo-choo train, a boing-boing ball, a chirping bird, a mooing cow, and a big bus that says beep! An interactive book that adults will need to activate at first. A good take-along travel toy. (800) 515-5437.

Age: Infants,Toddlers. Award Year: 2006.

Clear illustrations include boys and girls as well as lively animals. 2 & up.
