Who knew a book about boredom could be so fun?
I really enjoyed Anh’s Anger and didn’t know there was a companion book. This one provides readers a way to deal with their anger by following the footsteps of Anh after his friends decide to play a different game than he wants to and he entertains the idea of getting revenge.
A great book for Mister Rogers fans sure to bring fond memories of watching the show and listening to the songs. Or, if you weren’t alive during those times, checking them out on YouTube!
I’ve been in the search of a feel-good novel that wasn’t too sentimental- and I found it with A Drop of Hope. Perfect for fans A Snicker of Magic and Circus Mirandus.
Three kids become the secret keepers of the mysterious goings-on in their troubled town involving a wishing well.
I love the bite-sized sections that provide an appetizing meal of a story.
A graphic novel that shares an actor’s childhood growing up in a Japanese interment camp and drawing parallels to the current situations happening in our country’s borders. A powerful read about a heinous crime committed against Americans of Japanese descent and how we’re bound to repeat past mistakes if we don’t acknowledge them and try to make amends.
I’m also sharing nonfiction picture books that I’ve read recently.
The world will be a better place if more people knew about Mister Fred Rogers. This picture book biography is a wonderful introduction to a man whose words and talents have made so many feel like they belong somewhere for being just who they are.
Another collection of mini biographies of amazing females. There are definitely better ones out there.
Keep an eye out for this book since you’ll want to add it to your library. Many books have been written about Martin Luther King, Jr. but this one is a cut above the rest. It felt more detailed or all-encompassing somehow. And all the backmatter materials provides even more information without giving the reader a sense of being overloaded.
A fun picture book to teach young readers about skulls. Although it would probably have freaked me out if I read this as a kid. But then I would blame it on how we’ve been conditioned to think skeletons are scary!
A fun picture book for aspiring writers. This might be fun to pair with Mac Barnett’s How to Make a Book.
I made a mistake of thinking this was going to be a dumbed down manual on how to write. While written for kids, any one regardless of age will pick something up from this book full of exercises to get the creative juices flowing. If nothing else, readers will remember to “Have fun. Save what you write.”
