A clever, hilarious rhyming story. I love it so much!
Reasons I love Peck Peck Peck:
- It's a sweet, funny story about a little woodpecker learning how to peck
- The artwork is vibrant and eyecatching
- As the woodpecker pecks, more and more holes appear on the pages, making this a great tactile book for young readers
An excellent back-to-school book about a little T-Rex who doesn't understand why her classmates don't want to be friends with her (and also can't stop eating them.)
Firmly rooted in 1950s San Francisco, Telegraph Club is the poingnant story of a Chinese-American teen discovering the queer community and her own identity. I love its nuanced portrayal of a character with intersecting identities.
From the author of the critically acclaimed Gracefully Grayson comes a thoughtful and sensitive middle-grade novel about non-binary identity and first love, Ami Polonsky's Spin with Me .
This gorgeous graphic novel will break your heart and put it back together again. The Magic Fish tells the story of Tien, a young Vietnamese-American boy who wants to tell his parents he is gay, but doesn’t know the right words in Vietnamese. Tien’s story is made all the more poignant with glimpses into the fairy tales he reads out loud with his parents, and his mother’s narration.
Snapdragon becomes an apprentice for the town witch, and learns (a) that she is a real witch, (b) how to use magic, and (c) a lot about her own family's history. A great middle-grade graphic novel!
What would happen if you replaced the characters in Lord of the Flies with beauty pageant contestants? Do not be fooled by the cover- this book is fast-paced, fun, and fiercely smart. Oh, and there are pirates!
No one writes history for young people quite like Steve Sheinkin. This is one of my favorites of his work, but his whole backlist is well researched, sharply written and incredibly accessible for young readers.
Email or call for price.
Yes! Finally, an art book that makes the topic of art history approachable and fun for kids. Love love love it!
This book made me laugh, cry, and compulsively re-read. Noah is a sharp observer of himself and the world with a playful narrative voice.
Though Bradbury started writing The Martian Chronicles in the 1940s, so many of the issues it explores are just as relevant today. It tackles issues of settler colonialism, class, and land development through the eyes of humans colonizing Mars as well as Martians.
