Hedbanz
(Spinmaster $15.99 Score:)

Each player takes a turn putting in their headband without looking at the object printed on the card. The player with the card now has to guess what his card says by the clues the other players give. A great family game for mixed ages. Comes with six headbands, a timer, scoring chips, and 74 cartoon cards.

2002 Award
When You Grow Up
(Lennie Goodings/illus. by Jenny Jones, Penguin $14.99 Score:) What child hasn't viewed the future with mixed emotions? Here Zachary, a small bear, and his mom talk about all the things he may become when he grows up. In each instance Zachary agrees that after he does all these exciting things he'll come back and live with his mom. A warm and fuzzy reassuring tale that allows for just a small nod to seperation in a time of great attachment.

When Mommy and Daddy Go to Work

2002 Award
My Day, Your Day
(Robin Ballard, Greenwillow $14.95 Score:) A clever concept book. Each spread shows a child doing a typical school activity contrasted with the same activity in a parent's world. While Junior builds with blocks, Dad builds with bricks; lunchtime in school is for eating-for a chef it's about cooking. Helps kids see connections between their world and their parents'.

Age: Preschool. Award Year: 2002.

I'll Always Be Your Friend
(Sam McBratney/illus. by Kim Lewis, HarperCollins $15.95 Score:) A little fox does not want to stop playing. When Mama leads the way to the den he has a temper tantrum and vows not to be her friend anymore! A reassuring story most young preschoolers will relate to.

2002 Award
What Dads Can't Do
(Douglas Wood/illus. Doug Cushman, Simon & Schuster $14 Score:) We know him and love him-this dad who can't win at checkers half the time and can't give a bath without getting wet. He can't pitch or hit a ball very well either. A tender send-up of dear old dad! Even better than its sweet companion book, What Moms Can't Do.

Age: Preschool. Award Year: 2002.

2002 Award
The Reluctant Flower Girl

2002 Award
Rattletrap Car
(Phyllis Root/illus. Jill Barton, Candlewick $15.99 Score:) It's a hot day and Poppa is taking Junie, Jakie, and the baby to the lake in their rattletrap car. Root's playful lyrical language will tickle young listeners.

Music Cube
(Munchkin $34.99 Score:) Compared to Neurosmith's Music Blocks, this has poor sound quality. It's also a one-trick pony---playing a few tunes that cannot be changed with multiple cartridges like Neurosmith's. As each face of the cube is pushed a new instrument chimes in. However, the biggest complaint from testers was the lack of a volume control. It is super loud.

Age: Toddlers. Award Year: 2002.
