Teddy Bear of the Year

The Truth About Wind Hazel Hutchins and Gail Herbert; Dušan Petričić, ill. Annick Press, April

It’s been over 10 years since these authors and illustrator collaborated on the Marilyn Baillie Picture Book Award winner Mattland. This time, the creators tell the story of a stuffed horse that’s been left behind when a family moves away – and the complex feelings the toy brings to the new child who moves into the house.

Teddy Bear of the Year

Teddy Bear of the Year Vikki VanSickle and Sydney Hanson, ill. Tundra Books, Jan.

Author Vikki VanSickle can do it all – she’s proficient in picture books, middle grade, and YA. Her latest is the warm and fuzzy story of a stuffed bear who takes a day off snuggle duty to attend the annual teddy bear picnic, which resembles a summer office party with plenty of food, networking, and team-building.

Hey Little Rockabye Buffy Sainte-Marie and Ben Hodson, ill. Greystone Kids, May

There are a lot of stories about adopting a rescue animal, but only this one is written by legendary Canadian musician Buffy Sainte-Marie. Veteran illustrator Ben Hodson provides the adorable images of diverse children saving, and subsequently caring for, cute and fluffy dogs, cats, and rabbits.
