This Day in JuneThis Day in June by Gayle E. Pitman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

What’s great about this picture book that recently won the Stonewall Book Award is neither the text in verse that flows smoothly or the the illustrations full of details and color, but the back matter that talks about the significance of each page. Additional tips on how to talk to kids of various ages about this subject are also included.

Mahalia Jackson: Walking with Kings and QueensMahalia Jackson: Walking with Kings and Queens by Nina Nolan
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was surprisingly good. The text manages to tell Mahalia Jackson’s story in a lively way. The warm illustrations perfectly complements the words. Nina Nolan did her first reading of this picture book at our store. I wish her all the best of luck and hope that more people will read this inspiring tale!

A disgusting yet delightful discovery, Elise Gravel’s Disgusting Critters series introduces beginning readers to facts regarding certain familiar creatures. The humor and illustrations will appeal to kids and will want them to read more. Addicting for adults as well!
