2010 Award
Sugar Cookies
( by Amy Krouse Rosenthal/ illus. by Jane & Brooke D, HarperCollins $14.95 Score: )

Want to stretch both vocabulary and perhaps an understanding of the many ways to share love? Subtitled, Sweet Little Lessons on Love, this defines such words as selflessness, considerate, supportive, tenderness, and others. It's a kind of dictionary for such terms, and each is defined with a few sentences that connect to baking cookies. What a delicious way to learn about the sweeter things in life and giving kids the words to express more than the rudimentary terms of endearment. The Dyers' illustrations mix a world of children and animals having tea-parties, mice baking cookies, goats and pigs going to bake sales, and both animals and children dressed in clothing. It's an old-fashioned kind of world that has the look of childhood in the 1930's with milk in glass bottles, big hair ribbon bows, and gathering eggs in a basket. 6 & up.
