2010 Award
The Fathers Are Coming
( by Margaret Wise Brown/ illus. Stephen Savage, McElderry/Simon & Schuster $16.99 Score: )

"It's nighttime and the fathers are coming home."  That's how this lyrical bedtime book begins. Now, the fathers who return to their little ones are a fish, a bug (a father ladybug, of all things), a rabbit, daddy longlegs, a dog, bird, snail, lion, pig, and of course, a boy's father. The story is told in few words, indeed there is not much story, but the comfort of being together, written in a time when 'togetherness' ruled, resonates many decades later and makes for a cozy book to share. Written by the creator of Good Night Moon. 3 & up.
