2005 Award
Pie in the Sky
(Lois Ehlert, Harcourt $16 Score:) Starting with the somber brown tones of early spring, a child looks for evidence that the tree in the yard is what Dad calls a "Pie Tree." The text invites children to search for lists of bugs, bark, and other natural items that are easily found in the stunning cut-paper collages that are Lois Ehlert's trademark. No pie is found, but as the season changes the artist's palette bursts forth with blossoms, birds, butterflies, and a bright red cherry feast that lights up the pages! One of Ehlert's very best! 3 & up.

Age: Preschool. Award Year: 2005.

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.
