      "A love letter to family, home, and Indigenous traditions ? This story reminds readers of the joy we experience upon returning to those whom we love and who love us."—Kirkus STARRED Review

      From Cree-Métis artist Julie Flett and Academy Award-winning icon Buffy Sainte-Marie comes a celebration of Indigenous community, and the enduring love we hold for the people and places we are far away from.

      Based on Sainte-Marie's song of the same name, Still This Love Goes On combines Flett's breathtaking art with vivid lyrics to craft a stunning portrait of a Cree worldview. At the heart of this picture book is a gentle message about missing our loved ones, and the promise of seeing each other again.

      This gem of a picture book features:

      • Sheet music of Buffy Sainte-Marie?s beloved song
      • Notes from Sainte-Marie and Flett about their inspiration for the song and illustrations

      Brimming with love for community and the land, Still This Love Goes On is destined to be read and sung for generations.

      Praise for We All Play, written and illustrated by Julie Flett


      "The Cree-Métis Flett pairs rhythmic alliterative verse about animals at play with repeating silhouettes of frolicking children to celebrate our interconnectedness."
      The New York Times

      "Lively and beautifully illustrated."
      —Horn Book STARRED REVIEW


      "Cree-Métis artist Flett starts with quiet, elegant portraits of animals.... In spare compositions, [she] aptly underlines [the kinship between animals and people] by showing animals and humans embracing play in similar ways."
      Publishers Weekly STARRED Review


      "Everyone loves to play! Award-winning author/illustrator Flett shares the joyful antics of young animals as they romp in much the same way as human children. Simple text and bold, graphic illustrations celebrate our interconnection with the creatures who share our world."

      AN AMERICAN INDIAN YOUTH LITERATURE HONOR TITLE


      "Flett's simple story explores the difficulties of moving but also shows young readers how new friends can sometimes ease them; that this friendship is an intergenerational one between fellow artists is an especially sweet touch.... Emotionally stunning."
      Kirkus STARRED Review


      "Simple and profound, this tender story is a reminder that finding a new friend can make a new place feel like home. Highly recommended for purchase."
      School Library Journal STARRED Review


      "Flett's subtle, sensitive story delicately traces filaments of growth and loss through intergenerational friendship, art making, and changing moons and seasons. Cree-Métis words (defined in a small glossary) add an intimate layer of identity to the child's lustrous narration, which shines against the spare beauty of rich illustrations by Flett (who is Cree-Métis)."

      Description

      In this "surprisingly simple yet mesmerizing introduction to a wonder of the natural world" (Kirkus STARRED Review), kids aged 4 to 8 will marvel at the science of bioluminescence through stunning images of glowing creatures and other organisms.


      When it's dark out, we need light to see. But what if your body could make its own light?


      From acclaimed author-illustrator Julia Kuo comes a remarkable picture book about bioluminescence, the light made from living things, and its many forms: fireflies and foxfire, fungi and glow-worms, deep-sea fish and vampire squids.


      Kuo's radiant art portrays a young child and adult discovering different bioluminescent creatures, accompanied by simple lyrical text and informative sidebars that reveal fascinating scientific facts about each of them.


      An introduction to an extraordinary natural phenomenon, Luminous shines a light upon how truly wondrous the world is.


      Luminous features:

      • Brilliant and unique illustrations: The depiction of vibrant bioluminescent species against an unusual black backdrop creates an unforgettable visual experience for readers.
      • The science of bioluminescence: Shares the real-life magic of bioluminescence with sidebars about the various places and species in which bioluminescence is found.
      • Text can be read on two levels: Kuo's simple and poetic narrative is accompanied by scientific facts about bioluminescence.

      Reviews

      "Jellyfish, fireflies, forest fungi and more jump out from the dark pages of this visually striking book, offering a tantalising glimpse of a world that is so often hidden from us by our own light pollution. There's a lyrical quality to author-illustrator Julia Kuo's writing, but she is generous with the biological details too, whether it's explaining how dragonfish shine a red light that enables them to find their prey in the dark ocean, or how piddock clams light up the hands and mouths of those who eat them. This charming book's tone is one of wonder at the extraordinary abilities of animals all around us, but it doesn't shy away from the difficult subject of how humans negatively impact the environment. As Kuo puts it, "If we used less light, what could we see?""
      BBC Wildlife Magazine, Children’s Book of the Month

      "Gorgeous... effectively capture[s] the subdued glow of bioluminescent life... The poetic text... encourages observation and wonder... a gentle warning that human-caused light pollution is making this amazing phenomenon increasingly difficult to see."
      Horn Book STARRED Review


      "Will intrigue children and make them feel they have learned something new without feeling as though they are being taught... the illustrations... immediately evoke the glow of bioluminescence. Lovely."
      — School Library Journal


      "With two-level text and illustrations that almost seem to glow, Kuo presents the phenomenon of bioluminescence... simple, poetic text and striking images make for an effective group read-aloud. A surprisingly simple yet mesmerizing introduction to a wonder of the natural world."
      Kirkus STARRED Review


      "Appealing... Engaging, informative."
      Booklist


      "Beautifully illustrated... arresting illustrations steal the show... a lovely introduction to bioluminescence, whether read as a snuggly bedtime story or shared in a group setting to a set a tone of appreciation for the beauties of nature."
      Booklist STARRED Review


      "Breathtaking… a revealing book whose visual appeal, like bioluminescence itself, lures unsuspecting readers in."
      Publishers Weekly STARRED Review




      Praise for I Dream of Popo written by Livia Blackburne, illustrated by Julia Kuo


      "...Faithful representations of Chinese-language signage, street scenes, and cityscapes evoke nostalgia for those familiar with Taiwan and its vibrant food culture. Whimsical depictions of Chinese New Year at home and Popo's kitchen are authentic, down to the accurate details on a calendar, dumplings making from scratch, and the iconic rice cooker. Readers will connect with this visual story on various levels or learn something new; possibly both."
      Kirkus STARRED Review


      "...Digital illustrations evoking vintage advertisements have an effectively nostalgic quality, enhanced by abstract-colored skies, a subtle rice paper-like texture, and a subdued mid-century modern palette, while contemporary touches, including spreads of the girl and Popo video chatting, ground the story in the present day. A richly nuanced narrative that illuminates the interstices of one family's diasporic experience."
      Publishers Weekly STARRED Review




      Praise for The Sound of Silence written by Katrina Goldsaito, illustrated by Julia Kuo


      "Every detail of this book brings Japan vividly to life, from popular storefronts and cartoon characters to commuters wearing surgical masks and children removing their outside shoes at school. Japanese is rich in onomatopoeic sounds, and Goldsaito and Kuo convey this linguistic quirk to English readers both visually and verbally. The elegantly expressive text and illustrations together create an immersive sensory experience for readers."
      Kirkus STARRED Review


      "Kuo's digitally colored pen drawings perform glorious double duty, introducing the bustling street scenes and orderly private interiors of Yoshio's beloved Tokyo, and translating the concept of ma into literal and figurative imagery."
      The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, STARRED Review


      "Beautifully illustrated... arresting illustrations steal the show... a lovely introduction to bioluminescence, whether read as a snuggly bedtime story or shared in a group setting to a set a tone of appreciation for the beauties of nature."

      • How to engage with nature in fun and respectful ways

      Description

      This "heartbreaking... powerful work" (School Library Journal STARRED Review) introduces the contemporary issue of forced disappearances to readers 10 and up—with "deceptively simple black line drawings" that "allow for no meandering of attention" (Kirkus STARRED Review).


      By a closed door, a child waits for his uncle, who is coming to stay. As he waits, he imagines all the fun things they'll do when he arrives: his uncle can teach him how to block a penalty shot and the boy can show him how well he is doing in school. But his uncle never arrives. Page by page, the boy grows older sitting in the same position, waiting to show his uncle his degree, his son, and eventually, his granddaughter. And still, his uncle does not come.


      My Uncle Is Coming Tomorrow is dedicated to the forcibly disappeared who were never able to come home, and depicts the devastating impact on their loved ones who are left behind.


      An excellent resource for learning about the history of forced disappearances, this gentle but effective book includes an afterword that explains the act of "disappearing people": how it developed over the course of the twentieth century as a tool of political terror, and how people continue to be disappeared today.

      Description

      This "heartbreaking … powerful work" (School Library Journal STARRED Review) introduces the contemporary issue of forced disappearances to readers 10 and up—with "deceptively simple black line drawings" and "unsentimental bilingual text" (Kirkus STARRED Review).


      By a closed door, a child waits for his uncle, who is coming to stay. As he waits, he imagines all the fun things they'll do when he arrives: his uncle can teach him how to block a penalty shot and the boy can show him how well he is doing in school. But his uncle never arrives. Page by page, the boy grows older sitting in the same position, waiting to show his uncle his degree, his son, and eventually, his granddaughter. And still, his uncle does not come.


      A bilingual edition, with both Spanish and English text, My Uncle Is Coming Tomorrow is dedicated to the forcibly disappeared who were never able to come home, and depicts the devastating impact on their loved ones who are left behind.


      An excellent resource for learning about the history of forced disappearances, this gentle but effective book includes an afterword that explains the act of "disappearing people": how it developed over the course of the twentieth century as a tool of political terror, and how people continue to be disappeared today.

      Kids 9 to 12 will laugh out loud while reading this adventurous graphic novel, which brings an African folk tale to life for a new audience.


      When Sarra's parents die, they leave her with an important warning: never let Dan Auta, her little brother, cry. But Dan Auta loves to make trouble. He hitches a ride on the back of a bird, pokes the eye of the king's son, and even pees on the king's head. Making sure he doesn't cry is much harder than Sarra thought!


      But Dan Auta's unbridled curiosity and determination may be exactly what everyone needs: a terrible monster called the Dodo is attacking the city... and Dan Auta is the only one with the courage to take him on.


      Dan Auta features:


      • A delightful celebration of mischief and bravery
      • A portrait of the extraordinary things kids are capable of when they follow their own paths
      • Lively illustrations from renowned illustrator Piet Grobler
      • Supplementary material that explains the folk tale's significance

      "Kids and adult alike will love poring over the different sections of this book and will delight in informing their friends and family members of the facts they've learned."
      School Library Journal STARRED Review


      A perfect book for engaging kids in STEM: This illustrated tour of our "leftover" body parts (like the appendix, or even goosebumps) introduces readers age 7-11 to the bizarre and fascinating science of evolution.


      Welcome to the weirdest museum you'll ever explore—the one inside your body.


      Did you know your amazing, incredible body is a walking, talking museum of evolution? In The Museum of Odd Body Leftovers, tour guides Wisdom Tooth and Disappearing Kidney lead readers through a wacky museum dedicated to vestigial structures: body parts that were essential to our ancestors but are no longer useful to us—even though they're still hanging around.


      From goosebumps and hiccups to exploding organs and monkey muscles, each room in the museum shows us that these parts have stories to tell us about our past. By the time we make it to the gift shop, we'll understand that evolution is not only messy and imperfect, but also ongoing. Our bodies are constantly changing along with the environment we live in—and there's so much that is still unknown, just waiting to be discovered.


      Engaging, hilarious, and a visual treat, The Museum of Odd Body Leftovers is a place you'll want to visit again and again.
