      Why are people different colors?

      2016

      by Emma, Waddington, Christopher, Louis, McCurry and Thomas

      "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. Each fully-illustrated spread poses questions around the theme of identity and diversity, helping children to understand different ethnic structures, cultures, and ages and generations. Explanations and advice for parents and carers to help guide and inform their child have been compiled by two child psychologists" --Publisher

      The storm

      2016

      by Akiko, Miyakoshi, Ghione, Katie, Scott and Yvette

      "As this evocative picture book begins, a little boy is excited about a trip to the beach with his parents planned for the following day. But a bad storm is coming, and he has started to worry they won't be able to go. He watches as the sky grows darker through the afternoon. His mother and father close the shutters and bring the potted plants indoors. Then the storm arrives. "All through dinner, the rain beats hard against the shutters. The wind howls and blows," the boy says. "I try not to be scared." At bedtime, he thinks, "I wish I had a ship with big propellers that would spin stronger winds to drive the storm away." While asleep, his wish becomes his dream, and he manages to blow away the dark clouds with his imaginary vessel. Then, to his delight, when he awakens, he finds his dream of clear blue skies has come true --Publisher's website

      "Twin sisters, Chirri and Chirra, go out for a bike ride when it starts snowing and end up going on a cool, magical journey through the woods. The girls find an ice cavern where they join the animals for some sweet treats, a game of marbles, soaking in a hot spring, and a comfortable rest in an igloo that is just the right size." --|c(Source of summary not specified)
