Waiting For Wings
(by Lois Ehlert, Harcourt $17 Score:) Breathtakingly vibrant collages spill over the pages of htis glorious early science book that is told in rhyme.

2006 Award
Diary of a Spider
(by Doreen Cronin/illus. by Harry Bliss, HarperFestival $15.99 Score:) Like her amusing Diary of a Worm, this new diary gives us an inside view of the eight-legged world of a young spider who has an unlikely friend, Fly.
