While a sweet book about finding your "song" it is also a book to learn about birds as well. The illustrations show you the lovely landscape and creatures our little heroine sees as she takes her adventurous journey to find her one-special song. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

The reader will grow with this book due to the fact it is a poem/story first then a science book. Facts about birds are mixed in with the text. Bird lovers and people who enjoy a great story are the targeted audience. Great for a tie-in to a fiction science story for the classroom. Fun and lovely illustrations. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Schubert is matter of fact about the life of a little-known dancer during pre-Civil Rights era. The amazing illustrations of Taylor help take the "sting" of the harsh and show you how beautiful this world is, too. The colors are soft, bold while capturing the feeling of the text. They are a story within themselves. Sensitive readers might not be okay with some of the context, but ages 5 to 8 should be fine. Great for a classroom. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Iris, deaf from birth, has had to navigate life within a world that does not always understand her. Luckily her maternal grandparents are also deaf, so she has had a safe harbor when things get stormy. But events toss her about and separates her even more from others. That is until she learns about a whale other whales do not understand either. Now Iris will do whatever it takes to let him know understands. Even if that means running away with her grandmother to deliver a special gift in person. And the currents of this adventure bring her things Iris could never imagine. A lovely story of friendship, determination and family. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

A jazz lullaby-poem with smooth, light and dark colorful and soundful illustrations. Reality of the city flow into the images of the fantasy, dream world: the child sleeping on the moon or floating down the street on a tiny boat watching the feet above them go by. This is a lullaby, a read-anytime and even a book for adults who love amazing illustrations and a great story. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
