A New School Year

A New School Year: Stories in Six Voices
by Sally Derby (Author) and Mika Song (Illustrator)

Booktalk: In a unique narrative, readers meet a diverse group of six children ranging in age from Kindergarten through fifth grade. With nerves and excitement each child gears up for a new school year by hustling in the morning, meeting new teachers and new classmates during the day, and heading home with homework and relief by day’s end.

Bug Band Jamboree

Bug Band Jamboree
by Precious McKenzie (Author) and Maegan Cook (Illustrator)

Booktalk: Jug band jamborees started long ago in the mountains of Tennessee. Musicians gathered in the moonlight to make joyful noise on washtubs, washboards, kazoos, banjos, tambourines, and drums. Follow the musical adventure of one such band, Wilhelmina Jean and the Thumpers.

Snippet:
Wilhelmina Jean shook, rattled, and rolled
the tambourine with all her heart and soul.

We Are Family

We Are Family
by Patricia Hegarty (Author) and Ryan Wheatcroft (Illustrator)

Booktalk: Celebrate the diversity of families through shared experiences by following ten different families from morning to night in the art on each page spread.

Snippet:
Wherever we are, whatever the weather;
Families always stick together.

Through thick and thin, happy and sad,
We’re there for each other, in good times and bad.
