2010 Award
Christmas with the Mousekins
( by Maggie Smith, Knopf $15.99 Score: )

A clever combination of story and crafts, broadly based on the Night Before Christmas. This will not replace an authentic reading of the classic poem. But, if you bring this home long before the holidays kids can use it as a recipe book for making simple decorations, tasty treats, and lovely little gifts that are realistically age appropriate. Maggie Smith's illustrations and choice of activities are picture book perfect and show how to make interesting cut chains for the tree, among other crafty ideas. Of course, these are going to require parental assistance, but the story is designed to inspire active doing that fit the spirit of the season.
