Enjoy Some Time to Share These Stories!

Spend some time with your favorite young readers and these three great stories! In this picture book panel, go fishing with a young girl who spends a lovely afternoon with her grandfather, watch as a young girl named Nell fosters a tiny seed into a beautiful tree that's enjoyed for generations, and then join Lily as she, along with her family, makes the big move from the States to Taiwan. 

You won't want to miss: 

  • This Is Not My Home by VIVIENNE CHANG & EUGENIA YOH. A humorous and heartfelt reverse immigration story that will resonate across cultures and show us how a place can become home. When Lily and her family must move back to Taiwan to take care of her elderly Ah Ma, Lily is devastated to leave behind her whole life to move somewhere that is most definitely not her home. But Lily soon realizes, with help from family and friends, what home means. And perhaps — someday — it might become her home too.

  • One, Two, Grandpa Loves You illustrated by DAN YACCARINO. A joyful ode to the special bond between grandfathers and their grandchildren, from acclaimed creators Shelly Becker and Dan Yaccarino! 

  • Nell Plants a Tree by ANNE WYNTER and DANIEL MIYARES. This stunning, poetic picture book shows how one little girl’s careful tending of a pecan tree creates the living center of a loving, intergenerational Black family. Before her grandchildren climbed the towering tree, explored its secret nests, raced to its sturdy trunk, read in its cool shade,  or made pies with its pecans... Nell buried a seed. And just as, with Nell’s love and care, her tree grows and thrives—so do generations of her close-knit family.
