-Peck by Lucy Cousins [*]
-I’m Not a Pig in Underpants by Elwood Smith [*]
-One Night, Far From Here by Julia Wauters [**]- One of the most beautiful picture books recently released is One Night, Far From Here. Julia Wauters created a visually stunning bestiary set in different landscapes and taking place during different times of the day and night. Kids will enjoy the story and searching for all the animals in the pages!
-V Is for Vegan by Ruby Roth [**]- This was actually pretty good. It wasn’t overly preachy.
-The Cloud Spinner by Michael Catchpool, Illustrated by Alison Jay [**]- This a wonderful fairy tale with a very important message of not using more than you need. Very reminiscent of Dr. Seuss.
-On a Beam of Light by Jennifer Berne, Illustrated by Vladimir Radunsky [**]- Another great non-fiction picture book this time about Albert Einstein as a young boy just curious about the wonders of the world around him.
-The Listeners by Christopher Pike [**]- Rereading one of his rarer books not just because this was “adult”- and, yet, I was reading this in middle school. I don’t know why since it’s creepy. He does a great job of mixing straight up police procedural and throwing in supernatural and spirituality elements. [Off the Shelf Reading Challenge.]
-Starry River of the Sky by Grace Lin [***- My Pick of the Week]- Grace Lin recaptures the magic of Where the Mountain Meets the Moon in this equally enchanting tale of a boy in search of the missing moon and himself. It’s about the magic in the stories we tell others and ourselves. It’s also about family and forgiveness.
