2012 Award
Good Night
(Benoit Marchon/ Soledad Bravi, Houghton Mifflin $7.99 Score:)

A cardboard picturebook for toddlers. There is a cutout in the middle with a smiling pink-cheeked face. But with every turn the creature with that face changes from star to fish to sun to dumpling and so many other familiar things. Each is told good night. Toddlers will soon like "reading" this book since the repetition makes for easy imitation. They may not recall the names of each of the pictured items, but they will like pretending to be able to read. 1-3

Age: Toddlers. Award Year: 2012.

2012 Award
Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes
(By Mem Fox and Helen Oxenbury, Houghton Mifflin $6.99 Score:)

A collection of babies and toddlers from all over the world, all doing what babies and toddlers do. Each new pair of children introduce us to some new locale, new actions, new ethnicities--but always the alternating pages show how they all have ten little fingers and ten little toes. We loved the original and now this bilingual edition, done on sturdy cardboard stock for independent beginning page turners.

Boat Works
(by Tom Slaughter, Blue Apple $13.99 Score:)

Newest in a series of fold-out books that give little clues about the whole object that is slowly revealed as the small square page opens into a giant square image that is four times bigger than the original. Boat lovers will o-o-o-o and ah-h-h-h as they discover a rowboat, sailboat, ferry, tugboat, ocean liner and the harbor. This foldout format was also used in several Toyportfolio Platinum award winning books by the late Simms Taback from Blue Apple.

2011 Award
My Daddy
(by Guido Van Genechten, Clavis $12.95 Score:)

Colorful images of father and son capture the fun the pair share. There is no real story, but rather a catalog of the active things they like to do together. Printed on sturdy cardboard stock, this is a book for toddlers. Good for talking about what is happening in the pictures and for making connections between their own Daddy and the games played in the pictures.

It's My Birthday
(by Helen Oxenbury, Candlewick $8.99 Score:)

Few events please older toddlers more than a birthday. Any book that centers on this event and especially the cake part it likely to become a favorite. This is an old fashioned kind of toddler tale in which the toddler asks his animal friends to give him each of the ingredients needed. In the end they all share the cake and so can you. The recipe is on the back. Originally published in 1993, this is now redone in a board book that will withstand beginner page-turners. The art makes up for the semi flat cumulative story line. 2 & up
