As Told By Littles | A Bad Case Of Stripes by David Shannon

I will be the first one to admit that the cover of A Bad Case Of Stripes freaked me out. It also freaked Little One out. He told me he really didn’t want to read this but we both decided to conquer our fear and read the book. I have noticed that Little One has been struggling with stress and sometimes I think it has to do with school and trying to fit in. I thought this story might help him. Our library only had the audiobook available but after […]

As Told By Littles | When The Beat Was Born by Laban Carrick Hill

I’ve been on a mission to read more diversely to the Littles. I recently saw When the Beat Was Born on different lists I found for diverse reads and was once again lucky that my library had it. I mainly borrowed this book for myself. I’ve always loved to learn the history of Hip Hop and who the pioneers are. When The Beat Was Born was a pretty good book about how DJ Kool Herc early life influenced his music. I also loved the illustrations and how they related to […]

ARC Review | Malala: Activist for Girls’ Education by Raphaële Frier

Before reading this, I had a basic idea of who Malala is and I would say that this book is definitely a good introduction to her. The story gives a good platform into who Malala is and what she has done for girls’ education and why she began her activism. This would be the perfect book to read in a classroom because it would teach about activism and also help expand the children’s classroom. This story was not written for adults and is explained in a way that kids could […]

Review | Thunder Boy Jr. by Sherman Alexie, Yuyi Morales

My Review Thunder Boy Jr. was a book I randomly found in the library while looking for books to check out for the littles. The one thing that caught my attention was the cover; there was something so beautiful about it. I was also excited to see that Yuyi Morales had illustrated Thunder Boy Jr. the kids and I had read a couple of Yuyi Morales books last year and really loved her books so we were excited to see her illustrations. Thunder Boy JR. was a story that the […]
