Brava, Strega Nona!: A Heartwarming Pop-Up Book
Gorgeous popups, lovely words
This book had alot going for it before we even opened it: 1) we already have several Strega Nona books that we enjoy, 2) we are of Italian heritage, and 3) we like popup books. Well, when my 6-year-old daughter and I opened it up, we couldn't believe our eyes. The popups were so amazing and intricate! Can I just say spinning water in the water fountain in the town square!? The simple words ...
Linnets and Valerians
Beautifully done story that starts off with the Linnet children running away. The story has an air of mystery and magic to it, that might or might not be.

Have you ever made or ate chicken on Sunday? If so, you should read Chicken Sunday by Patricia Polacco. It teaches that people can't always do or get what they really want for someone and it also can be a surprise for them. Not only Sundays Miss Eula made chicken. We called those Sundays Chicken Sundays. Every single time she went close to the hat store she would look in the window at the ...
The Latehomecomer: A Hmong Family Memoir
Kao Kalia Yang
Coffee House Press
I was not particularly interested in this book or its author. Then I saw her speak at Conversations of the Valley in Stillwater, MN...and I fell in love. Kao Kalia opens her mouth and poetry comes out. I ran...not walked...to the bookstore to buy the book. It did not disappoint. It felt like a continuation of Kao Kalia's presentation. Each word is so carefully chosen, and the story itself ...
Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon
Review from Books That Heal Kids
A+ Yep, you heard me. This book gets an A+ from the students and me (Elementary school counselor). Molly Lou Melon is a "hot mess." I say that with such love and adoration. There are certain books I depend upon to help me teach the concept of self-esteem. This one is a winner. I see kids being bullied, put-down, and made fun of (I know, sad) at school. Most of them are not "built" to take this ...

excellent 'life lesson' book
Found this book when my kids were younger. Excellent story that both kids and adults can relate to for dealing with a favorite elder's death, in this case, two grandmothers. Very sweet. Still brings tears to my eyes when I read it. Arrived in good condition and timely manner.
Different just like me
A great discussion starter for difficult topics

I was so impressed by how the book was able to open the ...
Billy and the Birdfrogs
B. B. Wurge
Billy brings it home!
From page one, this magnificent story takes you on a unique journey like no other. Though Billy's adventure physically takes him deep into the heart of another world, it also takes him deep within himself. Wurge's crafty satire runs throughout the pages, allowing a child's look at the "system" before them. His use of vibrant characters is brilliant, allowing the reader a personal connection ...
Grandma's Feather Bed (John Denver Series)
Dawn Publications (CA)
This book brings to life one of John Denver's signature songs. My 2 year old daughter wants to listen to the song and look at the book almost daily. The CD is a different version from any Greatest Hits CDs, so this book for my daughter has become a gift to me as well.
