They All Saw a Cat
by Brendan Wenzel
This is an extremely clever and accessible way to teach children about different perspectives. And it is just all around fun. Definitely worth checking out!
Every Day Birds
written by Amy Ludwig VanDerwater
illustrated by Dylan Metrano
A wonderful read, this book introduces children to 20 common birds found in many places in the USA. The cutout paper illustrations are gorgeous and the back matter is excellent.
My Beautiful Birds
by Suzanne Del Rizzo
Suzanne Del Rizzo captures both the heartbreak and hope so many refugees carry. The mixed media illustrations are unique and help set this book apart.
Rot: The Cutest in the World!
by Ben Clanton
I love it when a book is able to pull off a great unexpected ending. You know a twist is coming, but then it is executed in such a great and unexpected way. We all chuckled at this one and my 8yo daughter has reread it to her little brother multiple times.
