Jackie and the Books She Loved illustrated by BATS LANGLEY. History remembers Jackie as the consummate First Lady, especially for her White House restoration and the cultural events she instituted during her husband’s administration. Jackie was on the world stage in 1963 when President Kennedy was assassinated. She led the nation in grieving the fallen leader with grace and dignity. This insightful story paints the portrait of a child captivated by reading and a love of literature and writing that blossomed into a seasoned and confident editor in the last two decades of her life.
Boys Don't Fry by KIMBERLY LEE. Jin loves the aromas and the bubbly chatter coming from his kitchen as his aunties cook for the New Year. There's nothing he wants more than to lend them a helping hand. But his aunties shoo him away, claiming that he'll just get bored or be in the way. Luckily, his grandma intervenes and asks Jin to help her prepare their special New Year's dinner, creating a delicious tale filled with sweetness and spice that aims to warm the heart (and the stomach)!
- Milo Walking by JAMES HOWE. Every morning, Milo goes walking with his mother. There are so many things to see. While Milo was sleeping, the rain left a puddle for him to find. “Hello, Milo,” he says to the boy in the puddle. When Milo listens closely, he hears bees. They have a lot to say. Each day is full of possibilities when Milo goes walking: new things to observe, old things to see in a new way, the magical “maybes” of his imagination — and what we might find tomorrow.
- Mr. Fiorello's Head by CECILIA RUIZ. Mr. Fiorello loved his hair and never wanted it to go away. But, sometimes, the things we care the most about leave anyway. Such is the fate of Mr. Fiorello and his hair. Fortunately, he still has a head on his shoulders and thoughts in his head, which help him to navigate his loss and disappointment in favor of a larger possibility. Possibilities that lead him from his apartment into the world, to grow and tend to a larger garden than the hairs on his own head.
