I'm looking forward to conversations about new and recommended books!
It is always good to get fresh ideas.
Rita, I agree! It seems more important than ever to be aware of the range and value of children's literature. Please share thoughts about or connections to any of the books in the comments. If you have specific questions for Children's Book World, you're welcome to email them at email@example.com and please put KSLA Delaware Valley in the subject line.
For those who attended Colby Sharp's presentation, please share one or more of your takeaways. Whether you attended or not, how might some of these recommended books foster a love of reading?

So many important books to increawse awareness and resspect. I fell in love with this one: A Hundred Thousand Welcomes-Mary Lee Donvon.
What a wonderful way to introduce young readers to diversity and hospitality. Beautiful illustrations enhance the message of acceptance and kindness. It also serves as an introduction to other languages through the diverse ways of saying the beautiful word, Welcome: Benvenuto, Taŋyáŋ yahí, Receber, Fáilte, Bienvenidas. A priceless story extending friendship and empathy through the welcoming of others..
Rita, thanks for highlighting that one. Another picture book that stood out to me was Remember to Dream, Ebere, written by Cynthia Erivo. The illustrator, Charnelle Pinkney Barlow, attended the University of the Arts in Phila. It seems that in this complex time, a book about inspiring dreams, literally and figuratively, is a great gift.
