2010 Award
The Jellybeans and the Big Book Bonanza
(by Laura Numeroff and Nate Evans/illus. by Lynn Mu, Abrams Books $15.95 Score:)

Anna, a book loving bunny, just cannot get enough time for reading. She reads while she shops, hops, and bathes in her bubble bath. But her friends, have other interests, among them shopping for jellybeans. When their teacher assigns book reports, it is Anna who takes them to the library where she and Ms. Beasley-Buzzer, the librarian help the others find books that match their interests perfectly. A sweet book made all the sweeter with Lynn Munsinger's cast of animal children. Ann in her tub and her cozy chair are just so comfy!

2010 Award
Waiting for Baby and My New Baby
(by Rachel Fuller, Child's Play $4.99 Score:)

You won't find any psychobabble here. These two sturdy board books are illustrated with all the typical events of getting ready for the new baby and the arrival. The illustrations and text both invite a lot of talking rather than simply listening. They do not anticipate the mountains of feelings that the arrival of a new baby brings. That's a different story. These two little books are a refreshing walk on the sunny side! Just right for toddlers and young preschoolers. 2 & up.

2010 Award
The Fathers Are Coming
(by Margaret Wise Brown/ illus. Stephen Savage, McElderry/Simon & Schuster $16.99 Score:)

"It's nighttime and the fathers are coming home."  That's how this lyrical bedtime book begins. Now, the fathers who return to their little ones are a fish, a bug (a father ladybug, of all things), a rabbit, daddy longlegs, a dog, bird, snail, lion, pig, and of course, a boy's father. The story is told in few words, indeed there is not much story, but the comfort of being together, written in a time when 'togetherness' ruled, resonates many decades later and makes for a cozy book to share. Written by the creator of Good Night Moon. 3 & up.

2010 Award
Ten in a Bed
(by Jane Cabrera, Holiday House $16.95 Score:)

Once again Jane Cabrera puts her own lively stamp on an old song that kids love and learn quickly since the verse is so repetitive. Knowing the words can certainly help beginning readers intuit the connections between words they say/sing and words on the page. There's plenty of county fun in this old ditty.

This new cardboard version will go the distance in the hands of beginning page turners. 3-7.
