2005 Awards
Feet Are Not for Kicking
(by Elizabeth Verdick illus. by Marieka Heinlen, Free Spirit Publishing $7.95 Score:) A fine sequel to Hands Are Not for Hitting and Teeth Are Not for Biting. A short but sure message that counts all the good things feet can do that is followed with what they should not do. The art is at times a bit awkward, but that will not bother the audience for this book, toddlers and young preschoolers. This is a good choice for more extended discussions. Backmatter includes tips for parents and caregivers. 2 and a half & up.

Age: Toddlers,Preschool. Award Year: 2005.

2006 Award
A Truck Goes Rattley-Bumpa
(Holt $14.95 Score:) Older toddlers and preschoolers love trucks and this is a perfect choice to satisfy that enthusiasm. Told in rhyme with bold primary colors, London introduces the bigger concept of the many kinds of trucks and the things they do. Younger than the wonderful concept book, "Truck Song", this is sure to win favor with those who are ready for a little more information found in the vehicles in a Donald Crews' book, but not so much that it goes over their heads. 2 & up.

Age: Toddlers,Preschool. Award Year: 2006.

2006 Award
Little Yoga
(by Rebecca Whitford/illus. Martina Selway, Holt $9.95 Score:) Whether you are doing yoga or not, this is an appealing little book that invites active doing—stretching like a cat, wobbling like a bird, crouching like a frog—among other things. Clear illustrations include boys and girls as well as lively animals. 2 & up.

Age: Toddlers,Preschool. Award Year: 2006.

2006 Award
Animal Babies
(by Vickie Weber, 3M $6.95 Score:) Handsome full-color photos of animal babies and their mothers light up the pages of this sturdy board book. Each animal is introduced with a partial view and some hints as to its identity, as in “an animal that goes ‘Oink’ and has a curly tail.” The turn page shows the whole animal and its mommy and the baby’s proper name, as in “piglet.”

Age: Toddlers,Preschool. Award Year: 2006.

Duckie's Ducklings: A One-to-Ten Counting Book
(by Frances Barry, Candlewick $7.99 Score:) Mama Duck only looks ahead, so she fails to see all of her ducklings who appear one by one behind her in this beginner’s counting book with cutaway pages. 2–4.

Age: Toddlers,Preschool. Award Year: 2006.

2006 Award
10 Little Rubber Ducks
(by Eric Carle, HarperCollins $19.99 Score:) This is not so much a counting book as another one of Carle’s glorious knowing and naming books. Ten little toy ducks fall off a container ship and meet a variety of ocean-going creatures along the way. Ends with an electronic squeak that little listeners will love to anticipate and activate. 2 & up.

Age: Toddlers,Preschool. Award Year: 2006.

2006 Award
He's Got the Whole World in His Hands
(art by Kadir Nelson, Dial $16.99 Score:) Except for the cover, we loved the illustrations of this spiritual. Following an African-American boy and his family through day and night, rain and shine, Nelson enlarges the joy and comfort of these familiar words.

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

2006 Award
Carl's Sleepy Afternoon
(Farrar Straus $12.95 Score:) This mostly wordless book is just begging for a child storyteller to interpret the illustrations and tell the story of Carl’s very busy afternoon when he did everything but sleep. Wordless books like this are perfect for the beginning storyteller. It is not likely to be told twice in the same words and each time the story is apt to grow fuller. 4–8.

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

2006 Award
Duck's Skates
(by Lynne Berry/illus. by Hiroe Nakata, Holt $15.95 Score:) A lively romp as five little ducks wake up to find a snowy day. Told in zippy rhyme, this captures the flavor of a winter day of fun topped with cups of cocoa and a cozy ending. 3 & up.

Age: Preschool. Award Year: 2006.
