2017 Nomination (not yet selected): 
The kind of bed time book to delight a child, full of actin and noise. The text offers lots of repetition, making easy for the child to chime in and the sounds rhyme, going from La to Rah Rah. We move up a skinny apartment building where there is lots going on on every floor. Check out the front cover for a hint or two. The illustrations are as lively as the text and very child appealing. Will it make your youngster go to sleep? Maybe not right away, but it will make bedtime reading more fun and interactive. Edie Ching (up to 7)

Each black page reveals lights from an oncoming vehicle through cleverly placed and shaped die cuts. Both a counting book and a guessing game, enthusiasts can imagine to what vehicle the lights belong—of land, sea, or air.

Do you know which ones will grow?

A brightly illustrated book that encourages reader/listener participation. They rhyme will help with the guessing and the picture flaps add to the surprise. Just enough information in terms of text and illustration to be engaging and not overwhelming.
