2011 Award
Rosie Sprout's Time to Shine
( by Allison Wortche/illus by Patricia Barton, Knopf $19.99 Score: )

Poor Rosie is a little green with envy. A girl named Violet seems to be best at everything. Rosie can take just so much and then one day, after the class has planted seeds, she wants her plant to be the best. When no one is looking, all-too-human Rosie pokes Violet's sprouting plant into the soil. Almost at once, she regrets what she has done, especially when she learns that Violet has the Chickenpox. While Violet is getting better Rosie finds a way to make things right. A gentle little story that will resonate with early years children. 4-8.
