Freedom in Congo Square by Carole Boston Weatherford, Illustrated by R. Gregory Christie

3.25ish stars.

Weatherford is a talented picture book author. She picks worthy, informative subjects and does them justice. I like her rhyming in this book and the way she sensitively but boldly addresses the subject matter. 113 more words

Du Iz Tak? by Carson Ellis

4.5ish stars.

I will seriously have so much fun with this book. I can already picture myself using this in some of my classrooms. It’s written completely in an invented language, but we can more or less infer the meaning of the dialogue. 154 more words

Leave Me Alone! by Vera Brosgol

4.5ish stars.

Hilarious, warm-hearted and beautifully illustrated. Probably not as “deep” or “important” as some other picture books, but just as enjoyable. Not much else to say except that I can definitely sympathize with granny sometimes… Possibly my favorite picture book of 2016. 38 more words
