Our latest selection for this honor is:

Happy in Our Skin
By Fran Manushkin, Lauren Tobia (Illustrator)
($15.99 Candlewick Press)

"This is how we all begin: small and happy in our skin."  This beautiful, many-cultured book features our skin which protects us and defines us as individuals. It is an elementary science title as it shows skin features -- scabs, dimples, freckles etc., but it also speaks to being comfortable in one's very own skin. It's a loving, marvelous read for members of the extended family and their communities. -- Loved by Kate Brasch, Children's Buyer
