2011 Award
Over the River and Through the Wood
(by L. Maria Child/ illus. by Matt Tavares, Candlewick $16.99 Score:)

Though most of us know a verse or two of this old song, this oversized picture book includes many more stanzas than you probably ever heard. Best of all, the glorious illustrations follow a 19th Century family in their horse and sled on the way to Grandfather's house. The sights and scenes capture a sense of another time and place that takes the song back to its roots and gives young children a bit of visual history.
