This story of a daring girl from Rome, Italy who not only took the world of fashion by storm, but the world of art by storm too (lobster on your evening gown anyone?) is an amazing book that is artful and factual. The art of Julie Morstad ties the text together. And the pages pop with colors of all kinds, but especially pink, which was Schiaparelli’s favorite color. A must have for history, art, or fashion buffs. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
This is a great introduction to Barbara Jordan. While it focuses on her work and less on her personal life, it still gives a good overall picture. The afterwards cover more of her personal life. But as Jordan herself was private, nothing is too intruding. Older children (7 up) would be the perfect audience. But also, would be a fun "companion" time for the "adult or teen" learner to add to a presentation or talk. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
This a baby book. You the parent fill in the information. However, it is not just "height, weight, who visited you, etc." but other things as well. This time it is a more poetic take on the “firsts” of your life and more. The text that is there is lovely but you make it your own in the end. The illustrations are in the signature style of Tillman with her rich, soft, bold and artistic combinations. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

When one young boy was watching man find space, he remembers that we need to stick our heads in the sand or more accurately the coral reefs, too. Messner introduces the reader to Ken Nedimyer and at the end gives information on the project, how we can help and a short glossary. Matthew Forsythe has images that tell their own story while complimenting the text. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
