2006 Award
Why?
(by Lila Prap, Kane Miller $14.95 Score:) Why do hyenas laugh? In bold print around the amusing illustration, there are all sorts of silly answers. But to the right a scientific explanation tells all. A collection of questions about animals such as the zebra, kangaroo, monkey, and many more are answered in the same way. Kids might enjoy making up more Q & As to go with other animals. 6 & up.

Age: Early School Years,Later School Years. Award Year: 2006.

2006 Award
Boy, Were We Wrong About Dinosaurs!
(by Kathleen V. Kudlinski/illus. by S.D. Schindler, Dutton $15.99 Score:) A refreshing look at dinosaurs, contrasting what we used to think we knew, with what we think we know now. As interesting as the information is in this book, it’s the bigger idea that wins the day by helping young people see that our body of knowledge is not fixed and closed, but rather is ever-growing and often changing. 7 & up.

Age: Early School Years,Later School Years. Award Year: 2006.

2007 Award
Sharks and Other Sea Monsters
(by Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart, Candlewick $27.99 Score:) In typical fashion, Sabuda has created yet another incredible pop-up book. This is darker and the information denser than most. If your young reader is taken with the world of sharks, whales, scorpions, and prehistoric sea monsters that still live, this is a book to dive into. There will be lots of ooohs and aahhhhs as the pages, large and small, pop open. They say 5 & up; we think this will be a waste for kids under 7 or 8 but enjoyed by those well beyond—say 40 & up.

Age: Early School Years,Later School Years. Award Year: 2007.
