2013 Award
Year of the Jungle
( by Suzanne Collins/ illus. James Promimos, Scholastic $17.99 Score: )

A remarkable memoir, written from the point of view of first grader whose father has gone off to war. Suzanne Collins'(author of Hunger Games) father was deployed for a year during the Viet Nam war.  But war is war, and for those who are dealing with or have known the separation and rollercoaster of emotions, this says it all. Even the happy ending is more realistic than most and better than the reality was for too many. 6 & up.
