Even though our young hero has had video chats with her grandmother, still when she flies to Taipei to visit, she is understandably nervous. Taipei has odd foods, language, people, and buildings, so our young friend is not sure how she feels about all of it. The theme of change and “warming up” to your situation is at the forefront, yet there is also the relationship between grandparent and grandchild. Based on Greanias’ own experiences. And Subisak illustrates this journey with bright, fun colors and the perfect details. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Marwan wants you to feel the emotions of her homeland, the feelings of leaving loved ones behind and that journey one takes. There is much going on the pages as we learn about the culture, hopes and dreams of our characters. The artwork and colors used are expressive, with minimal details that set the stage perfectly. The afterwards gives information that even adults might not be aware of. This book is one that can be adapted to most ages. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Worms are often forgotten about until you see them on a rainy day, but this charming book follows the life of a worm, a life that isn’t that different from any of ours. Worm goes to school, has fun with his friends, and teaches the reader all about the importance of worms. A wonderful book full of laughs and worth countless rereads. ~ Reviewed by Jordan Starks

The Sun and Moon sit down for a tea party but quickly start to argue about what happens on Earth, as Sun only knows about what happens during the day, where as Moon only knows what happens at night, they continue to argue back and forth until Cloud stops by and explains to them that they have different experiences and that the world can have people all getting ready for school as well as getting ready for bed. So the next day Moon and Sun stay up later than they normally do so that they can see what it’s like to be in each other’s shoes. This is a great way to introduce ideas of perspective and point of view in an easy to understand yet memorable way. ~ Reviewed by Jordan Starks
