2012 Award
Star of the Sea
( by Janet Halfmann/ illus by Joan Paley, Henry Holt $16.99 Score: )

Through quiet prose and lovely illustrations, this is, as the subtitle says, A Day in the Life of a Starfish. Slowly the starfish manages to get about, turns mussels to liquid food, and escapes from danger until a seagull snatches it up into the air and breaks off one of its rays! Imagine how surprised young readers will be to discover that the ray will grow back again. Watercolor collages add much to the charm of this fine science book for 5-9.
