Sweethearts of Rhythm: The Story of the Greatest All-Girl Swing Band in the World
By Marilyn Nelson, Illustrated by Jerry Pinkney "Every swing tune tells a story without words: The truth of people breathing in unison, the democracy of harmonies and chords. Unique, disparate voices raised as one. In the 1940s, as the world was at war, a remarkable jazz band performed on the American home front. This all-female band found its way to the most famous ballrooms in the country, providing solace during the hard years of the war. They dared to be an interracial group despite the cruelties of Jim Crow laws, and they dared to assert their talents although they were women in a 'man's' profession. Their story, told in rich, thought-provoking poems and arresting, magnificent images, is the story of our nation -- of our biggest challenges and our inspiring moments of glory." © 2009 Hard cover

A Little Peace
By Barbara Kerley and National Geographic "In my work as a peace negotiator, I have helped resolve conflicts in Cambodia and Vitnam, and worked to end nuclear proliferation on the Korean Peninsula. I've traveled much of the world, and I've spoken with people from many different countries and ethnic groups about the conflicts in their lives. I've been a witness to the misunderstandings and the difference that divide people, that if not managed well can lead to conflict." © 2007 Hard cover

Oh, The Places You'll Go!! Party Edition
By Dr. Seuss " For out-starting upstarts of all ages, here is a wonderfully wise and blessedly brief graduation speech from the one and only Dr. Seuss. In his inimitable, humorous verse and pictures, he addresses the Great Balancing Act (life itself, and the ups and downs it presents) while encouraging us to find the success that lies within us. And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and ? percent guaranteed.) " This modern classic, a perennial bestseller first published one year before Dr. Seuss's death at the age of eighty-seven, celebrates its twentieth anniversary this year. In a mere fifty-six pages, Dr. Seuss managed to impart a lifetime of wisdom. It is the perfect send-off for children starting out in the maze of life, be they nursery school grads or newly minted PhD's. Everyone will find it inspired good fun." © 1990 Hard cover

I Remember Miss Perry
By Pat Brisson, Illustrated by Stéphane Jorisch "It's his first day at a new school, and Stevie has never felt so nervous. Who will he talk to at lunchtime? But his teacher smiles an says, 'It is my fondest wish that you join me for lunch today, Stevie.' And with that, a bad day becomes a great one. "Miss Perry has a fondest wish for every day -- something new to read, sing, celebrate. But when news arrives that Miss Perry has died in a car accident, everything is suddenly strange and sad. With encouragement, though, Stevie and his classmates see that the joy their teacher brought is not lost. To feel it, they need to look no further than their own memories. "Here is a warm and tender story about childhood loss and memory's power to heal. Readers of all ages will be moved by its depth and honest, and buoyed by its amazing capacity of joy." © 2006 Hard cover 30 pages
