2010 Award
Dad and Pop, An Ode to Fathers and Stepfathers
( by Kelly Bennett/ illus. Paul Meisel, Candlewick $15.99 Score: )

A delicate balance is the way one can best describe the differences and likenesses, as well, between a dad and a step-dad in real life. This charming little book perhaps paints it all too easily, yet it may indeed help kids see beyond the good/bad equation and help them sort out their own feelings. Accepting that there can be two people who care about you, share time with you and even love you calls for a huge step for so many children of divorce. It's interesting that the mom in this story is very much in the background. This is about a child and the two men who are hardly alike except in the most essential way--they both love her.
