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.

2010 Award
A Pirate's Guide to First Grade
(by James Preller/ illus. by Greg Ruth, Feiwel & Friends $16.99 Score:)

Yo Ho, maties! If you have a pirate in your midst, bring this swaggering tale home at once. It's the first day of school and the young swashbuklin' boy is off to school, but not without his imaginary mates--who are drawn in sepia lines that appear behind the full color illustrations of the boy's "real world." It's a lively fantasy to please the imagination and great good fun for grown-ups to read aloud. 4 & up
