Kids at my school love nonfiction like this. A true story about a group of boys who build their own floating soccer field and start their own football club. It's an opportunity to learn about the popular sport, places in Thailand and the language as well as perseverance. #everybodyboooks #weneeddiversebooks

My library needs more diverse picture books. This is a fun and beautiful sharing of a Passover when a stray kitty finds a home. The book includes information about Passover for people unfamiliar with the traditions. #everybodybooks #weneeddiversebooks

Kenyazero This sounds like a good read! 4d
mandarchy @Kenyazero it is. The kitty is too cute for words. Much of the story is implied so lots of room for kids to make inferences. But it has that good feeling family time feel 4d

I need this book in my library! If you are looking for a book to talk about the pandemic, this is a great start. Pham genuinely illustrated so many experiences of the pandemic lock down when we still didn't have all the information and we were scared to go near our loved ones. #everybodybook #weneeddiversebooks

Beautifully illustrated and well researched historic fiction #picturebook retelling the events of 1 of the 1st memorial day celebrations in the U.S. after the Civil War. Includes background. information that guided the research, a bibliography, web links and a timeline. Great for leading up to the holiday weekend or as an example of how children can volunteer in service to their community. #everybodybook #weneeddiversebooks

While I do have one ginormous issue with this book (for which I blame the publisher, not the author), I am loving the diversity the author includes — she does it with wonderful subtlety; authors wanting a diverse cast of characters could do worse than look into this example.

Full review later — just wanted to share my in-progress enjoyment.

A twisting, twirling leap into the betrayals of professional ballet.
📚
At the American Ballet Company, onstage beauty comes at the cost of backstage ugliness. No more pretty pointe shoes!
📚
This is a tale of jealousy & sabotage. Gigi, Bette, & June navigate relationship & health problems as the story moves through unpredictable betrayals. “The Sugar Plum Fairy has farthest to fall.“
📚
Have you read Tiny Pretty Things? What did you think?

KristiAhlers Reading it now actually! 🩰❤️ 4mo
shannonsnextchapter @Katbooklover hope you‘re enjoying it!😊 4mo
KristiAhlers @shannonsnextchapter so far I am. I‘m a former dancer so this is really coming across as realistic. Ballet is beautiful but beyond competitive when you get to a certain level. 4mo
