2010 Award
Pecan Pie Baby
( by Jacqueline Woodson/ illus. Sophie Blackall, Putnam $16.99 Score: )

Gia's Mama is going to have a baby and Gia is anything but thrilled about becoming a big sister. Without being mean and nasty, Mia's view, as the event comes closer, is told with utter honesty. Woodson's language is on the mark with each new turn of events and Blackall's illustrations capture the moods that carry this to a tender ending. Cleverly, the new baby does not appear in a typical storybook happy ending. Instead there's some bittersweet to go along with that very sweet Pecan Pie.
