Earthrise tells the story of the first time the planet Earth was photographed in color from space. The photo, later called Earthrise, was taken in 1968 by the astronauts on Apollo 8, the first US space mission to break free of Earth's orbit and circle the Moon ... By making clear that Earth was, and is, at heart, a world without borders, a home to all peoples, the photo's mind- bending shift in perspective is credited for galvanizing the fledgling environmental movement and sparking hope in a year of global unrest.

Have I ever told you that, for me, there is no one more special than you? That for me, you are the most special child in the world, and that I love you now and will love you forever? Have I ever told you that? Shani King wrote Have I Ever Told You? as a note to his children, to remind them that they are amazing in their individuality and that they have the power to choose who they want to be in this world. The illustrations create a masterful visual narrative: warm, witty, simple, profound, and as ferociously empowering as a children's book can be.
Little sisters and little brothers all long for the same few things when it comes to their older siblings: a turn to play, a place on the team, a chance to shine. Little Brothers & Little Sisters starts with four pairs of siblings in and around an apartment complex, each expressing through play and daily life the many gripes and pitfalls of younger siblings. Subtly, the narrative shifts to reflect the good things that come with having an older sibling: a helping hand, a partner in crime, a friend for life. The book ends on a high note when it comes to brothers and sisters, the good outweighs the bad, and both big and little siblings have a special place in each others' hearts. Minimal text paired with impressionistic, full-spread illustrations creates weight and emotion in this lovely book that will help kids feel understood in all the pains and joys of siblinghood.--Provided by publisher
