Diddle, Diddle Dumpling and Little Miss Muffet

2006 Awards
Off to Bed & Out to Play
(created by Michel Blake/photos by Trish Grant, Candlewick $5.99 Score:) Cleverly designed knowing and naming books with black and white photographs and featured object in full color. Edges of the cardboard pages are staggered for easy turning, although we didn’t find them that much easier. It’s something like still life shots from Pleasantville for the toddler set.

What's That Sound?
(Soft Play $6.99 Score:) Ernie wants to know what to call each of the items that makes a special sound in this cloth book. There’s a squeaky duck, a ringing phone, a choo-choo train, a boing-boing ball, a chirping bird, a mooing cow, and a big bus that says beep! An interactive book that adults will need to activate at first. A good take-along travel toy. (800) 515-5437.

2007 Awards
Nursery Rhyme Books
(Sassy $12 Score:) These vinyl books—Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star; Rock-a-Bye Baby; and I’m a Little Teapot—can be enjoyed with sound on or off. They can be “played ”with music alone or with music with singing. Pleasant music, not overly loud, makes these an entertaining novelty for sing-along fun. Another book, Baby’s Book of Small Talk, is a knowing-and-naming book showing single objects on each page, with accompanying text written in English, Spanish, or French—take your choice. (800) 323-6336.
