2004 Award
Hands Can
( by Cheryl Willis Hudson/photos by John-Francis Bo, Candlewick $14.95 Score:) Marvelous photos of kids doing hands-on things are punctuated with simple rhymes that show and tell familiar things hands can do.

2004 Award
Baby Food
(by Saxton Freymann/illus. by Joost Elffers, Scholastic Inc. $12.95 Score:) The younger the child, the more realistic the illustration needs to be. But older preschoolers will see the humor of these fruits and veggies done up as baby animals. 4 & up.

2004 Award
Carlo Likes Colors
(y Jessica Spanyol, Candlewick $14.95 Score:) There is more than one color on each of these pages, so this is not a beginner’s concept book. The pages are busy and full of details to look at. For the very young this can be a distraction. For the older preschooler it will be a discovery game. Also, see Carlo Likes Counting & Carlo Likes Reading. 4–6.

Age: Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2004.

ABC A Child's First Alphabet Book
( by Alison Jay, Dutton $15.99 Score:) Just when you think you’ve seen enough alphabet books, along comes a beauty like this gem.

(by Jane Yorke, DK $16.99 Score:) Don’t be put off by the preschool-looking cover. This counting book is filled with photos and examples of items to count and compare. Many of the concepts go well beyond simple counting and are more appropriate for kindergarteners and first graders. 4–8.
