2012 Award
Hop, Skip, and Jump, Maisy!
(by Lucy Cousins, Candlewick $12.99 Score:)

Active play is what this delightful new Maisy book is all about. Pull the tabs and Maisy starts the day stretching and touching her toes. From there she goes on to do some jumping, kicking a ball, sipping her orange juice for energy, jumping rope, tumbling and finally sleeping soundly. Each of these events is animated with amazing paper engineering. One of the best ever! 2 & up. But be forewarned, you will need to teach about gentle hands so that the pages are not torn.

2011 Award
Robert Crowther Amazing Pop-Up Trucks
(by Robert Crowther, Candlewick $17.99 Score:)

Five truly remarkable pop-up trucks spring from the pages of this amazing new book. A garbage truck, monster truck, concrete transport, car transporter, and truck train lift up as you read about the work they do and how they do it. Like most elaborate pop-ups, this is one you will want to keep on a high shelf to share when you can supervise, unless you are not going to be very upset when little hands do what little hands do. That said, this is also a good opportunity for teaching kids about gentle ways with delicate things.

2011 Award
Big Bug Little Bug, A Book Of Opposites
(Paul Strickland, Scholastic $12.99 Score:)

Bugs with spots or stripes, underground or over ground, big and little, all kinds of bugs are pictured in these pages of opposite pairs. Some of the so-called opposites are a stretch. But the pay-off comes with a final pop-up with all the bugs. If you are looking for a way to reinforce the idea of opposites, this would be a playful opening to playing around with the concept. At the risk of self promotion may we also suggest Have You Seen Bugs? by Joanne Oppenheim, also pubished by Scholastic.

2010 Award
Maisy's Show
(by Lucy Cousins, Candlewick $15.99 Score:)

All of Maisy's friends are in the show. With amazing paper engineering Maisy tap dances, Eddie Elephant does a trick with a ball, Charley the alligator does a cartwheel, Cyril the pup does a vanishing act, Tallulah Chicken twirls like a ballerina and at the end the whole cast takes a curtain call. Fun! But this is one of those books that will need adults to supervise for gentle handling. You might also want to prepare for the simple fact that it will not be one of those treasures that lasts for long.

2010 Award
Robert Crowther’s Amazing Pop-Up Big Machines
(by Robert Crowther, Candlewick $17.99 Score:)

It is not an exaggeration to say that this is one amazing pop-up book. Each page has a working machine that becomes a play setting with moving parts. The text folds out and tells what the machine does. It's hard to say which of these is the mast awesome—the dump truck, bulldozer, tractor, forklift or tower crane. There are extra play pieces in pockets and even directions for making each machine work. They say 4 & up, but we’d say you will need to supervise the way this is handled to avoid tears over broken machines. This is a work of paper engineering art!

2009 Award
A Walk Down Sesame Street Pop Up Book
(paper engineer , David Hawcock, Candlewick $19.99 Score:)

Oversized pop-ups of their favorite Sesame Street characters lift off the pages of this novelty book. There is not much story here, but there are tabs to pull and simple questions to ponder. Marked not for children under 36 months. It's way easy to tear the pop-ups, so use this for teaching little lessons about "be gentle" or "easy does it". In between readings, you may want to put this away for safe keeping.

2009 Award
Big Frog Can't Fit In
(by Mo Willem , Hyperion $19.99 Score:)

With his typical wry humor, Mo Willems has created an amusing pop up book with a frog that is too big to fit inside the covers of the book. Bruce Foster’s paper engineering is fun, but Willem's usual storytelling skills are missing here. It’s a showy coffee table kind of book built on one joke that may not invite repeated reading.

2002 Award
Maisy's Big Flap Book
(by Lucy Cousins, Candlewick $8.99 Score:) Lift all of the 36 flaps in this oversized board book to introduce concepts such as color, opposites, counting, and shapes. As always Cousins gives toddlers exuberant illustrations and colors and best news- the edges on all the flaps and corners of the book are rounded off and safe enough for young page turners.

Vroom! Vroom!
(by Steve Augarde, Little Brown $13.95 Score:) If you have a race car fanatic this pop up pull the tabs book will be a winner. There's no story to speak of but plenty of action on every page. Wisely marked not for kids under three- this is not likely to stand up to rough riders!

Age: Toddlers,Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2002.
