If Cupcakes chose Caldecotts

With all of the talk of best books of 2011 and 2012 award hopefuls, I've been thinking about my kids' favorite books from 2011.

My two year old, Cupcake (her online pseudonym) is an avid reader and very vocal about what she likes.
And there is no doubt that Cupcake's favorite from 2011 is Squish Rabbit by Katherine Battersby.

We have checked it out from the local library multiple times. When she knows we are going to go to the library, she asks to check it out again. After the most recent checkout, she asked if we could buy our own copy! Yes, she is a precocious one.

Here she is "picture reading" Squish Rabbit in reverse. (transcript below video).

"thought he was playing...he kicked his little legs"
"tantrum - argghhhh!"
"they broke all the rules!"
"passed him by!"
Squishing sound for when Squish gets stepped on
