Finding Mumbo

by De'Asia Scott

Rahim loves his dog Mumbo, and Mumbo loves himself some Mumbo sauce. The two are best friends, but lately Rahim has been getting frustrated by all the chores that come along with taking care of a dog -- especially the ones that get in the way of him playing basketball. On the day before his big tournament, Rahim’s dad makes him take Mumbo out, but he’s running late for practice, so he tries to multi-task…and when practice is over, Mumbo is gone. Can Rahim figure out how to find his beloved dog AND play in the big game? --publisher's site

Me, Toma and the concrete garden

2019

by Andrew Larsen and Anne Villeneuve

"When Vincent is sent to his aunt Mimi's city apartment for the summer, he's surrounded by more concrete than nature. Things are looking gray. But before long, Vincent meets Toma, and the boys bond while throwing some strange dirt balls into an empty lot. All summer long, they toss and launch, throw and catch. Little do they know, though, just as their friendship is growing, something is also blooming in the empty lot. A celebration of the joy of a budding friendship, The Concrete Garden shows us the value of community and reminds us that sometimes everything can come up roses."--|cProvided by publisher
