MAX AND THE TAG-ALONG MOON (FLOYD COOPER)

MAX AND THE TAG-ALONG MOON (FLOYD COOPER)

Max loves his grandpa. When they must say good-bye after a visit, Grandpa reminds Max that the moon above them at Grandpa’s house is the same moon that will follow him all the way home. And on that swervy-curvy car ride back home Max smiles as the moon tags along, thinking of Grandpa. But when the sky darkens and the moon disappears behind clouds, Max worries that it did not follow him home after all. Yet when the clouds part and light streams through his window, he realizes that Grandpa was right—the moon was with him all along.

This beautiful story about a sweet boy and his Grandpa is an #OWNVOICES story.

MY HEART FILLS WITH HAPPINESS (Monique Gray Smith, Julie Flett)

MY HEART FILLS WITH HAPPINESS (Monique Gray Smith, Julie Flett)

Where could Little Night be? Down a rabbit hole? In a blueberry field? Among the stripes of bees? Exquisitely painted and as gentle as Little Night's dress crocheted from clouds, this is a story to treasure.

With a bilingual text in both English and Spanish, Little Night Nochecita by Yuyi Morales is a sweet story every child can enjoy.

This story is an #OWNVOICES story.

 

Join a city baby with two daddies during a day’s ordinary moments. This book features terms for objects, actions, and sounds.

We love this colorful, fun book because this family centers a child with two biracial dads, and the child’s gender identity is left open to interpretation for the readers.

This gentle board book is an #OWNVOICES book.
