Love, Sophia on the Moon


by Anica Mrose Rissi and Mika Song

"Life on Earth isn't always fair, so Sophia runs off to the moon, where there are no bedtimes, no time-outs, and no Mom. But as Sophia and her mom send letters to each other, Mom has a clever comeback for all of Sophia's angry notes. Home starts to sound not-quite-so-bad, especially when Mom reports that someone from the moon has moved in to Sophia's old room, they're having spaghetti for dinner, and they're reading Sophia's favorite story at bedtime. A through line of unconditional love underscored with lots of humor and imagination makes this picture book a stellar pick for storytime." -- publisher

The Runaway Belly Button


by John Flannery and Mika Song

"Striking the perfect kid-friendly balance of funny and a teeny bit gross, this is a hilarious, cautionary tale about what happens when you don’t clean your belly button. Grace loved to get dirty. But she was also pretty good at getting clean—she took proper care of Hands, paid extra attention to Feet, and even remembered to scrub behind Ears. There was just one body part she tended to forget: Bellybutton. Day after day, Bellybutton got dirtier . . . and stinkier . . . and filthier. Until after one particularly neglectful bath, Bellybutton decides she’ll have to get outie there to look and smell great again. In this lighthearted and comically charming picture book, John Flannery and Mika Song bring to life the sweetly goofy Bellybutton as she teaches Grace (and all her friends) how nice it is to be sparkling clean." -- publisher

When Ho'onani finds out that there will be a school performance of a traditional kane hula chant, she wants to be part of it. But can a girl really lead the all-male troupe? Ho'onani has to try..."--
