Stunning artwork makes this a Caldecott pick for me!
It’s the summer before a boy starts first grade. He goes on a camping trip with his family where a tiger joins them. A gentle tale about growing up.
A sweet book about how endings can often lead to new beginnings.
A new early chapter book series featuring a Somali-American boy. A field trip to the planetarium inspires Sadiq to form a Space Club at school.
A new Wonder book is always exciting. In this graphic novel, we hear more of Julian’s grandmother’s story being a Jewish girl during World War II. Heart-wrenching, for sure. Lots of extensive backmatter material.
For some reason, I originally didn’t want to read this but, once I picked it up and started, I couldn’t stop!
Nuns with secrets. Exiled royalty. Life and death situations based on the early years of Queen Elizabeth the First. Portland-based graphic novelist Dylan Meconis has created a gripping historical fantasy full of details that will make young and old readers alike feel like their living on the Island during the sixteenth century. Island-raised Margaret’s quite ordinary existence in the convent becomes complicated with the arrival of William, a boy her age and her first friend, and dethroned Queen Eleanor whose schemes will put all their lives in dire jeopardy. Truly a work of art that screams for more!
I hope there’s a sequel!
