2007 Award
Art
(by Patrick McDonnell, Little Brown $14.95 Score:) A breezy child-like conception of art without the usual museum solemnity.

2007 Award
Elusive Moose
(by Joan Gannij/illus. by Clare Beaton, Barefoot Books $15.99 Score:) A charming moose hunt that your child will enjoy. Lilting verse follows the animals in our far north. Careful lookers will find a moose on every page and enjoy Beaton’s appliqué art. A glossary of the animals at the end gives this an information edge. Same idea arrived late with lots of playful language and a moose to find in Looking for a Moose (by Phyllis Root/illus. by Randy Cecil, Candlewick $15.99 ). Both are winning choices! 3 & up.

Age: Preschool. Award Year: 2007.

2007 Award
Library Lion
(by Michelle Knudsen/illus. by Kevin Hawkes, Candlewick $15.99 Score:) A very satisfying story of a lion who comes inside the library and becomes a rule-abiding patron. But one day, when the librarian takes a tumble, Lion has the good sense to break the rules. A big idea for kids to grapple with—knowing right from wrong, and when an absolute is not so absolute. Hawkes’s illustrations give this an old-fashioned “Robert McCloskey” look that fits the story. 4–7.

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