What’s “normal” is different for everyone. This book brings a perspective of what this means for one incredible family. Nathaniel and his mother co-wrote this unique memoir about what is normal for them, in the life of a boy with a severe cranial facial condition and his family. Nathaniel tells his story with, humor, and heart! Great next pic for fans of “Wonder!"
Everything a young artist needs to know to develop their eye and creativity, plus easy to follow steps for laying the foundation for their own masterpieces.
Another wonderful addition to an excellent collection of graphic novels, this one with two girls who are friends despite their differences. They are interesting and unique characters and I like how each deals with their own issues, and how their friendship weathers typical middlegrade ups and downs. Perfect for fans of Real Friends, The Baby-sitter’s Club, and all of Raina Telgemeier.
This is an escape room in the form of a book. Each puzzle you solve may determine the path you take in the book; wrong answers may have unforeseen consequences! Beware of getting trapped in these pages forever! Wonderful fun for the Sherlock Holmes in you.
The Vegetarian Sausages were a hit at our party - with both vegans and meat-eaters! A fantastic book: simple, current, and delicious food for young cooks.
I am flabbergasted that I have gone 24 years without learning about Ashley Bryan. From his early art college days to deploying to Omaha Beach, Bryan kept his art close. He has interwoven his original artwork and letters into his fascinating life story. A wonderful book that explores the importance of art and passion during wartime.

Extraordinary! Look Both Ways invites the reader to see both their perspective and anothers’. The collection of interconnected short stories, with shared characters and setting, is brilliantly woven while allowing each short story to stand thoughtfully on its own. Jason Reynolds is one of the finest children’s authors right now, writing both middle grade and young adult. Don’t miss this one!
It's here! It's finally here! I have loved the world Rick Riordan created since I was 12 years old. Apollo and Meg must travel to Camp Jupiter to save Jason in the newest installment of the Trials of Apollo series. Reading about the famed God Apollo walking around as a gawky teenager makes me uncontrollably laugh. We have signed copies while supplies last!

In this immersive story, Palacio transported me back in time to France, during the occupation, where I met Julian’s grandmere—Sara—and witnessed bravery, kindness and compassion. Because it’s a graphic novel (which Palacio illustrated!), it played like a movie and I was right beside Sara while she hid from the Germans. Be sure to read the information at the end that expands on World War II.
