  • The Shadow and the Ghost by CAT MIN. Shinbi is not a particularly ghosty ghost. She prefers to stargaze instead of haunting at night. In the daytime, a single rock, casts a shadow, named Greem. He’d really like someone to talk to, so he writes one word on his lonely rock: “Hi” and hopes someone will see it. Sure enough, in the darkness of night, Shinbi finds the note! But who could have written it? Will these two lonely souls ever find each other?

  • When I Visited Grandma illustrated by KAVITA RAMCHANDRANIt’s Maya’s first morning in India, but Grandma is already rushing her — it’s market day and they must make the most of Maya’s visit. The market is too hot, too loud, too full of Grandma’s nosy neighbors, who continue to drop by even once they're home. But the next morning the house is unusually quiet. Dad explains that Grandma has had to go to the hospital. And suddenly Maya begins to see things differently… 

  • Are You Listening? by SUSAN VERDE. This sweet book is a guide for how to experience the world around us more deeply using the five senses to find joy, connection, and beauty in the small, everyday moments. With careful, intentional listening, we can better appreciate the world around us!
