Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge Wednesday #103

I Am JazzI Am Jazz by Jessica Herthel
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This picture book was getting a lot of publicity earlier this year when people were up in arms over a school’s plan to read it. With more attention being brought to transgender people and issues, it’s great there’s a book that can start a conversation for young people.

A great introduction to what Kwanzaa is all about. Through lively text and colorful illustrations, readers learn the principles of this holiday. Includes a recipe for a festive treat to share with celebrants.

The Extraordinary Voyage of Kamome by Lori Dengler and Amya Miller, Illustrated by Amy Uyeki

The Extraordinary Voyage of Kamome is the true story of a boat that drifted from Japan to the California coast after the Japanese tsunami of 2013. It’s a feel-good tale of two cultures that formed an unusual relationship after a tragedy struck.

    This is the first I’ve heard of I Am Jazz, it looks like it’s a pb that fills a good hole in literature – I hate that people are so judgmental 😦 Glad to hear it’s a good one.

    Ugh, some people are the worst. I’m glad we’re finally getting more diversity in our children’s books, including gender diversity.

    I love that so often you find books that were not on my radar. Thanks for the sharing. I have to find The Extraordinary Voyage of Kamome. See you in 2016!
