for Ten, Nine, Eight by Molly Bang
A little girl is rocked and readied for bed by her father's counting rhyme. The full color outlined paintings and low key warmth projected by a black family's cozy and loving bedtime ritual are reminiscent of Margaret Wise Brown. A beautifully conceived and developed idea and design. Honor Book, CCBC Caldecott Straw Vote. (Up to age 4)
