School Library JournalA well-crafted addition to any professional-reading shelf, this guide describes the creation of the award, gives a short biography of its namesake, and supplies a wealth of teaching ideas for implementing the award-winning books into library programs or school curricula. Short summaries and quotations are provided for each title. Sample booktalks are provided for titles that won the author award, while a list of activities is given for the books that received the illustrator award. Illustrations include black-and-white photographs as well as a few full-color plates. A short DVD introduces the award and includes comments provided by the authors and illustrators of the award-winning books. Unfortunately, in a few segments, the audio quality is not as good as it should be. Overall though, this superb guide will be valuable to librarians, teachers, and children's literature enthusiasts.—Melissa Christy Buron, Epps Island Elementary, Houston, TX
