  • Rumi  Poet of Joy and Love by RASHIN KHEIRIYEHEven the greatest poet was once a child. And so it was with Rumi. When he was young he was enchanted by birds and books. He later became a scholar, but it was the loss of his best friend, Shams, that inspired Rumi to his most important realization: Love is in us and everywhere.

  • Disagreement by NANI BRUNINIDisagreement is a visual narrative of an argument that spins out of control, turning into a shouting match where the only effort being made is to be the loudest. The argument consumes those involved, but they eventually escape the chaos through creativity, and it leads to understanding!

  • Henry and the Something New illustrated by MIKA SONG. It’s Field Trip Day! Henry's class is excited to visit the museum, but Henry's not so sure. The museum means maybe seeing dinosaurs, Henry's favorite. But it also means a lot of things that are new: a noisy school bus ride, a building full of echoes and hallways, and plenty of chances to get lost! Will he find something that makes all of this new worth the trip?
