I also posted about the new National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature- Meg Medina– including book reviews for the reading challenge I have with that.
An affirmation of unconditional love with unique illustrations.
This has been showing up on kidlit social media pages and deservingly so! I loved the quiet storytelling style used to present the sacrifices- especially of immigrant- parents make to ensure their child has a future better than theirs.
A fun book tackling a difficult situation lots of immigrant people experience when moving to a new country. It reminded me a little bit of Shaun Tan’s Arrival. Great for educators teaching about language and also readers who love to figure out what was trying to be said.
A beautiful subtle book about empathy, to be able to see beyond the superficial.
I’d been putting off reading this book but I’m glad I did since I want to live in the illustrations.
Another good “importance of names” book. I just wished the boy either did more to speak up (which I know was one of his problems) or that it showed his friend was picking up signs of what he was trying to say before she acted the way she did.
A fun read-aloud if you’re looking for something to pass the time.
Greg Pizzoli delivers another fun and surprising book that will delight young readers.
From the same team who brought IntersectionAllies: We Make Room for All, Love without Bounds (or previously known or sometimes titled as KINtersectionAllies) celebrates all kinds of families with extensive backmatter.
Is there a series that you’ve continued reading even though you really don’t want/need to? Little People, Big Dreams is that for me. I was definitely excited when this biography picture book series came out and I’ve kept up with it since then but the consistency has been all over the place. To be fair, it’s fine otherwise why would I even bother especially when they’ve been getting sort of hard to find. All that to say, this was about Nikola Tesla which was an easy way to learn about him but there are other books you should check out.
I’ve been charmed by this new leveled reader. In this one, Gigi tries to find which of her names fit her best.
An accessible history of LGBTQ+ movements and moments around the world covering topics from Stonewall in the US to Section 28 in the UK, from sit-ins to ball culture, from riots to pride. Perfect for middle and high school libraries and hopefully will be used as stepping stones to learn more about the people and places mentioned.
Thanks for visiting my blog. Happy Reading!
