I nominate A VISITOR FOR BEAR by Bonny Becker, illustrated by Kady Macdonald Denton. This one is so, so many things that a picture book should be -- and so perfectly suited for kids and adults to read together (especially adults who can be a little grumpy, like bear at times!)

EVERYONE: Please note than only one nomination per person AND once a book is nominated a second nomination doesn't help its chances. Pick another book instead.

I Know an Old Teacher by Anne Bowen, illustrated by Stephen Gammell.
The colorful illustrations add a great "yuck" factor to this fun rendition of the classic children's song!

I nominate Splat the Cat by Rob Scotton. (HarperCollins, July 2008). It was so funny.

Frederick Lipp

RUNNING SHOES, 2008 - CHARLESBRIDGE PUBLISHING, MA
Set in Cambodia where poor, at-risk girls have little chance of being heard, let alone find a way to continue school beyond the sixth grade. This story is a gentle wake up call for children who have so much we label "entitlement" and helps kids see beyond to those in the world without a voice for self-determination. A true story about how a pair of shoes changes one girl's life. True story.

Janci

Okay, can I rescind that nomination? When it was posted (twice?) I saw the second page and see someone got there first. So I would like to nominate, instead, Jellaby by Kean Soo. Only it's a graphic novel, so does this count as the right category?
