In one minute, you can blink your eyes twenty times, hug your dog, plant seeds, say good-bye, watch the rain, or even save a life. So much can occur in this sliver of time—one minute can feel like a singular experience. This poignant picture book is at once an introduction to time for young readers, an ode to living each moment with purpose, and a thoughtful exploration of how children experience one minute (may it seem short or long) playfully, profoundly, and with a boundless sense of possibility.[JPB Ahn]
under-the-sea
written and edited by Joanna McInerney; illustrated by Paul Boston
An interactive introduction to coordinates and how to navigate around a map invites children to imagine a mode of transport and embark on adventures through fantasy worlds where they must navigate around sleeping sea dragons, across gorilla-guarded bridges and through pesky road obstructions that require readers to solve math problems.[J526 McInerney]
a-texas-year
written by Tania McCartney and Tina Snerling
Meet Luis, Alexis, Christopher, Ethan, and Mia – Texan kids representing a blend of culture and race that typifies this amazing state. They’ll take you through a year in the life of Texan kids, from celebrations, traditions and events, to the everyday way of life and the little things that make childhood so memorable. A Texas Year is a picture book bursting with state pride. It’s a snapshot of who Texans are, blending modern-day culture and lifestyle with past traditions and multicultural heritage. Its pages feature meandering text, dates and gorgeous illustrations showcasing five Texan children at play, at school, at home, and enjoying the sights and sites of this great state. From the plains and canyons of the Panhandle to the beaches and wetlands of the Gulf Coast, vibrant cities and friendly country towns, this is the Texan childhood.[J305.23097 McCartney]
