Published: Kokila - May 14th, 2019

Based on Quintero’s own experiences as a child with her father, the author brings together the past (the races they had on what is now the main street), present (the dog chasing them, and their favorite shaved ice place closed) and future (a cart that sells shaved ice). The sense of family and community is loudly and boldly presented with great illustrations by Zeke Pena and Quintero’s text. The colors of the neighborhood, the blurs of what you see on the back of a motorcycle, and the fun details come to life. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Sulwe Cover Image
By Lupita Nyong'o, Vashti Harrison (Illustrator)
$17.99
ISBN: 9781534425361
Availability: Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now
Published: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers - October 2019

Lupita Nyong’o has created a picture book that deals with the issue of loving yourself. Growing up darker than her family, Nyong’o always wanted to change her looks; wanted to be lighter, like her own family and like her character, Sulwe. And while the two took different journeys, the ending is the same. They both came to love who they were: inside and out. Warm and outrageously gorgeous colors, Harrison paints a picture of a young girl who would do anything to be different, but eventually learns to live up to her name, the star. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Tiny is a T-Rex with short arms that make it hard to give hugs to his best friend, Pointy. But Tiny does not believe that this is an impossible task and will do whatever it takes to make Pointy feel better (even hug a cactus for practice)! Both text and art flow together in a complimentary manner. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

This Book of Mine: A Picture Book Cover Image
By Sarah Stewart, David Small (Illustrator)
$17.99
ISBN: 9780374305468
Availability: Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now
Published: Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR) - August 27th, 2019

This is a poetic look at the things we do with books: read, enjoy, chew, use to imagine, learn from, even smell them. A book about books. How they make us feel and how we partake in them. An engaging poem that shows anyone can red a book: from the very young to the older gentleman looking at a book of music. Small’s illustrations, while not bold, have the right amount of color and details to invoke a calm feeling like many books do while we read. Kids of all ages (which includes us gown-ups) will enjoy. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
