      Why are people different colors?

      2016

      "Why Are People Different Colors? provides the perfect platform to explore family issues and questions that children have as they grow up and try to make sense of the world around them.

      I am Josephine

      2016

      by Jan, Thornhill, Jacqui and Lee

      "Meet Josephine: a spirited and curious girl, a big sister, and a human being. She's also a mammal, an animal, and a living thing--all identities she explores with readers in this simple informational picture book. Josephine presents her family (and herself) as examples of human beings, and then familiar creatures like her dog and her mom (and herself) as mammals. Next, she adds whales, lobsters, hummingbirds, and elephants (and herself) as examples of animals. Finally, she shares examples of living things, including moose, foxes, butterflies, flowers, and bugs ... and, of course, herself!"--Amazon

      Ira Crumb makes a pretty good friend

      2017

      by Hrab, Naseem, Holinaty and Josh

      Meet Ira Crumb. He's the new kid in town. He knows what that means: when the new school year starts, he'll play alone at recess, eat alone at lunch, and walk home alone at the end of the day. So Ira launches a whole-hearted campaign to befriend neighborhood kids before the first day. But his best-laid plans--a sandwich stand! a dance- off!--fall flat, and playing it cool doesn't seem to work either. Just as Ira decides school will be HORRIBLE, a comical misunderstanding connects him with Malcolm, who was the new kid last year and totally gets it--and who, it turns out, will make a pretty good friend. Full of comedic touches, comics-style storytelling, and a diverse cast of quirky characters, this hilarious debut picture book puts an endearing spin on the anxiety that accompanies change and making friends
