2009 Awards
In My Nest
(by Sara Gillingham and Lorena Siminovich, Chronicle $8.99 Score:)

A charming board book with an attached felt finger puppet bird that sits above the die-cut cardboard pages. With each turn of a page we see a new layer of the nest until we reach the end where the little bird is cozy with its family. A companion book, In My Pond ($8.99 4.5) uses the same concept with a felt fish, a pond and a happy family. Adorable little books for lap sitters.

2009 Award
Princess Baby Night-Night
(by Karen Katz, Schwartz & Wade/Random House $14.99 Score:)

It’s bedtime but “Princess Baby” has a lot of important ways to delay the inevitable. A cute little story that reluctant bedtime goers will relate to. We could have done without the scene when she takes a tub without any adult in view. That said, this is another winner from Karen Katz! 2 & up.

2002 Award
Going Places
(by Todd Parr, Little Brown $4.95 Score:) Most of the vehicles (except for the fire engine) are easy to recognize and name, which is the whole purpose of this kind of book. If the images are too hard to recognize then the knowing and naming possibilities are lost. Bright and colorful, this one makes more sense than the zany faces in the companion, Funny Faces book.

Age: Infants,Toddlers. Award Year: 2002.

2004 Award
Baby Genius Colors, Numbers & Baby Animals
(DK $7.99 Score:) Arrived too late for our book, but here is a new boardbook series for talking and looking at together. The Color book has no confusing other colors on most pages- so toddlers will get a "Gestalt" of what is red, blue, etc. Their number book goes only to five- perfect for beginners, though some of the images are a bit fuzzy; Baby Animals show the same animal in multiple poses- so there's lots to talk about. There's also a shape book, but we think this is a concept for older tots- not those who are barely talking yet. 6 months & up.

Age: Infants,Toddlers. Award Year: 2004.

2005 Award
Hello, Spot!
(Eric Hill, Putnam $8.99 Score:) Spot is looking behind a bush, in a basket, under a flowerpot, and in other places, where he discovers many familiar animals. A charming lift-the-flaps fabric book, which little hands can safely explore. Beyond the peek-a-boo stage, this reinforces animal names and position words.

Age: Infants. Award Year: 2005.
