Celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the moon landing: Neil Armstrong walked on the moon on July 20, 1969, and we’ll be celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of this historic moment in summer 2019.
For fathers and daughters: Featuring a dad spending quality time with his daughter, this book is perfect for Fathers Day, as well as daddy-daughter storytime any day of the year.
An ode to the working class: This story shines a light on the hardworking, frequently overlooked workers who make huge national accomplishments possible.
Making history personal: This story focuses on how a major historical moment affected one community—and how that community affected it. Marthanne and her town are loosely based on the author’s mother’s hometown of Slater, South Carolina, and their experience during this period. An author’s note details the connection.
Up-and-coming illustrator: Sarah Green’s star is on the rise, and we’re so excited to have her on Dial’s list.
