      Description

      Reveling in metaphor, with two books in one, this flippable book encourages a magical leap of imagination and asks the reader to look at everyday objects from a different perspective.

      A young child skates, bakes and milks the cow while the moon wondrously transforms above. That moon is a silver pond when seen through the trees, and when they tend the cow, the moon is the milk at the bottom of the pail. Flip the book and join a young child walking along a country road into town to watch a parade. The sun takes the form of the yolk of an egg, a spool of thread, the eye of a bird, an ice-cream cone and a dandelion. Each round, a yellow item on the page hints at the big golden ball in the sky. With stunning illustrations by Josée Bisaillon, this picture book shows children that the way they see the world—by heart, mind and imagination—is just right.

      “Illustrations in pastels, watercolors, cut paper, pencils, and digital collage are rich and textured without being busy. Spare prose encourages lingering over the art, and observant readers may discover additional metaphors...Not just for story times, this would also be an excellent text to introduce metaphor to elementary students and could be useful for art class as well; a very good additional purchase, especially where Round by Joyce Sidman is popular.

      Description

      A little girl grieves the loss of her mother, but she can’t grieve alone.

      When her friends and family arrive at her house to sit shiva, laden with cakes and stories, she refuses to come downstairs. But the laughter and memories gradually bring her into the fold, where she is comforted by her community. By the end of the book, she feels stronger and more nourished, and she understands the beautiful tradition. Then, when sees her father sitting alone, she is able to comfort him in his time of need. Sitting Shiva is a beautiful, heartfelt story about grief and loss, but also about comfort and community. It shows that no matter what religion you practice, we are all more similar than we are different.

      A note from the author explains the ritual of sitting shiva, a seven-day period of mourning for the death of a family member observed in Jewish homes.

Instead, Tanna deems Fluffi to be a family member and attempts to raise the lemming in her home. But when the lemming strays from its cozy bed behind the stove and into Tanna’s mother’s things, Tanna is forced to consider whether she has really done what is best for Fluffi. Is it possible to treat something poorly by trying to treat it well?

      ?“In this delightfully original nonfiction picture book… the readable text offers understandable science, while the engaging illustrations promote careful investigation. A valuable addition to science and nature collections. Highly recommended.”—School Library Journal, starred review

      How do animals see the world? It turns out, very differently.

      In this nonfiction picture book, a young girl and her baby sister's outdoor adventure (hiking through the forest, picnicking in the grass and swimming in the ocean) is overseen by the local fauna. The way those animals view the girls is very different from how the girls see each other. Goats see far and wide in a panorama, whales don't see color the way humans do and a high-soaring eagle's sharp vision can clearly see a tiny mouse far below. Through clever illustrations and scientific prose, we are reminded that while we may see things differently, we all share this life together on planet Earth.
