2010 Award
Rain School
( by James Rumford, Houghton Mifflin $16.99 Score: )

Introducing children to other cultures is best done in terms of experiences that are familiar. Going to school is one of the life experiences that children share, but in Chad the school house is washed away each year in the rainy season and before traditional classes can begin, the children learn how to make mud bricks, desks, and a thatched roof. This simple story with a minimum of words and handsome illustrations transports the reader to another world where schooling begins with learning more basic than the A,B, C's.
