Fish and Frog
(by Michelle Knudsen, Candlewick $14.99 Score:)

New to the Brand New Readers, a collection of four small stories—one line to a page—about Fish and Frog. Illustrations help the beginner with sight words that may be new but are obvious in context. Funny little stories with plenty of repetition, position words, and opposites. First grade.

2006 Award
Termite Trouble
(by Kathy Caple, Candlewick $14.99 Score:)

Four funny stories featuring a termite who eats his friends’ houses; bounces on a trampoline; makes a piece of sculpture; and helps an ostrich to fly. These are like short comic strips with enough action in the images to tell the story. The text is repetitive and one line long per page, so it’s a happy magic key to sight reading from the Brand New Readers. First grade.

2008 Award
One Boy
(by Laura Vaccaro Seeger, Roaring Brook Press $14.95 Score:)

Beginning readers will have fun with simple counting and finding little words inside of bigger words. Cleverly done with bold graphics and cutout pages that reveal words inside of words—as in a page that shows “two seals” and a turn page that shows then “at the sea”.

2009 Award
Monster Parade
(by Shana Corey/illus. by Will Terry, Random House $3.99 Score:)

From the Step Into Reading series, this is an east to read book with a cast of monsters. Unlike most, these are totally un-scary monsters. In fact, they are all the kids on the block dressed up in their Halloween costumes. Rhyming couplets make this a book that beginners can use if they have a grasp of word families. It has short sentences and plenty of repetition. Level 2.

2009 Award
Chicken and Cat Clean Up
(by Sara Varon, Scholastic $16.99 Score:)

In this semi-wordless book children "read" the pictures to tell the story in their own words. There is a lot of signage in the very urban book, so non-readers may need help to understand some of the humor. In this little adventure, cat is not too good as a house cleaner, but his talents are rewarded when he catches a mouse robbing a ladybug. Varon's cartoon illustrations are lively and easy to follow. 5 & up.
