Grandfather Gandhi by Arun Gandhi and Bethany Hegedus, Illustrated by Evan Turk [***]

First of all, the illustrations are wonderful- a great collage of fabric and materials. Beautiful! And, the true story of Gandhi’s grandson is very relatable of feeling not able to live up to other’s standards- in this case of not being able to be as peaceful all the time but especially when faced in a very charged situation. I love that the book’s website has a “Live Your Life as Light” pledge. I think this might pair well with Desmond Tutu’s Desmond and the Very Mean Word.

Rainbows Never End by Laura Lyn Disiena and Hannah Elliot, Illustrated by Pete Oswald [***]

I think I love this series. There’s so much to learn with these books and presented in such a fun way with very colorful illustrations. This particular entry is all about weather and I enjoyed discovering there were so many things that I didn’t know! Additional mini fun facts can be found at the end of the book. Looking forward to the future titles!

    I am working with another writer on a story that includes rainbow info, so this book should be good for a source, Earl. I also need to read Grandfather Ghandi-looks so good. Thank you!

    I loved Grandfather Ghandi. I will have to look for this series. Weather is always a hit with the students.

    I am now avidly on the look out for Did You Know titles – as I’m beginning to think my daughter needs more nonfiction titles this summer. 🙂
