Beatrice while her sister Roo loves the light. Neither can understand the other's love of spiders, cellars, stars (Beatrice), or the sun, flowers, and the day's joys (Roo). But when Roo admits to being afraid of the dark, Beatrice does what any good big sister would do, and gives her a special piece of magic. Learning to appreciate and love each other (even if they cannot get behind the other's personal tastes), the sisters create a happy medium. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

A clever and warm-hearted trip into the mountain fog humorously reminds youngsters that not all unknown or unfamiliar creatures (or people) are monsters to be feared. Hakim the donkey learns repeatedly that appearances can be deceiving- the scary monsters hidden in the mountain mist are just friendly animals whose appearance is, at first, distorted by fog! And then, in a fitting, final twist, the one creature we encounter who really is a monster is Hakim's friend. Loving everyone for who they are despite appearance is the message of kindness that kids will enjoy as they read and re-read this one, again and again. ~ Reviewed by Jon Fine

A rabbit father and son must sell bread to buy rocks to build a tower so they can see on the other side of the scary forest. Drawn with haunting simplicity in the French ligne claire style, this strange and mysterious picture book reads like something you'd find in your grandparent's attic. Later in life, you'd wonder if it had been a real book or if you had dreamed it. ~ Reviewed by Reilly Hadden

When you have a hobby, you know it can sometimes get out of hand. And Hana’s hobby is fashion! It is making hijabs sparkle and shine with the goodies she finds in her grandmother’s jewelry box and things found at her aunt’s hair salon. But things are getting out of control and are taking over nooks and crannies she did not know the family home had! When she learns about a way to share her talents, and learn a few problem-solving techniques along the way, Hana’s world (and those of her friends, family, and community) is a lot brighter. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
