Here is a little bit of information about three new children’s books in our collection. Remember: even though our branches remain closed due to Covid-19, you can place books on hold and then schedule a time for no-contact pick up at our branches.
When We Are Kind celebrates simple acts of everyday kindness and encourages children to explore how they feel when they initiate and receive acts of kindness in their lives.
“Takes readers into the lives of amazing glowing organisms – animal and otherwise – and shines a new light on the spectacular natural phenomena of bioluminescence, biofluorescence and ultraviolet light.”– Provided by publisher
February is Black History Month and this is a wonderful introduction to Black History told through the alphabet. Here is a sample:
“B is for Beautiful, Brave, and Bright! And for a Book that takes a Bold journey through the alphabet of Black history and culture. Letter by letter, The ABCs of Black History celebrates a story that spans continents and centuries, triumph and heartbreak, creativity and joy. It’s a story of big ideas–P is for Power, S is for Science and Soul. Of significant moments–G is for Great Migration. Of iconic figures–H is for Zora Neale Hurston, X is for Malcom X. It’s an ABC book like no other, and a story of hope and love. In addition to rhyming text, the book includes back matter with information on the events, places, and people mentioned in the poem, from Mae Jemison to W. E. B. Du Bois, Fannie Lou Hamer to Sam Cooke, and the Little Rock Nine to DJ Kool Herc”– Provided by publisher
