This is the Firefighter
(by Laura Godwin/ illus. by Julian Hector, Hyperion $15.99 Score:)

For preschoolers who often visit the firehouse, this is a good follow up book to that experience. The text, told in verse offers simple information and the art offers lots to talk about. When the alarm goes off a drama unfolds as the firefighters go off to put out a fire and rescue everyone.

2009 Award
Farmer Joe and the Music Show
(by Tony Mitton/ illus. by Guy Parker-Rees, Scholastic $16.99 Score:)

Farmer Joe’s critters are not doing their thing until he pulls out his guitar and gives them some music. Nest thing you know Fiddler Fox arrives on the scene and surprisingly, he breaks the old stereotype. He is not there waiting to gobble up the innocents. He really just joins the musical fun, as does Bear with a double bass. A bit contrived, but lively fun for reading aloud. 3 & up.

Age: Preschool, Early School Years. Award Year: 2009.
