2010 Award
Magnus Maximus, A Marvelous Measurer
( by Kathleen T. Pelley/ illus. S.D. Shindler, FSG $16.99 Score: )

Magnus Maximus is excellent at his work. He can measure all kinds of things. However when he breaks his glasses he is befriended by a young boy who teaches him a measure that he had forgotten. This is a bit on the preachment side of storytelling, but it is done with a light hand and S.D. Schindler's delightful illustrations. The two combine to make a storybook that says something important to kids who are often so busy doing all their assigned tasks, they forget about the treasures found when doing less is more. It's marked 4-8, but we think early school years children 5-8 will get more from this special storybook.
