Bess the Barn Stands Strong
Written by Elizabeth Gilbert Bedia & illustrated by Katie Hickey
Year after year, Bess the Barn is a place of hospitality & celebrations. She watches animals come and go. She sings a welcoming song. But barns grow old and change is inevitable. Can Bess weather this storm? Lyrical text & warm illustrations paint a story of change, as well as what is steadfast & true. All around gorgeous!

Alien Tomato
Written by Kristen Schroeder & illustrated by Mette Engell
Assumptions abound in this tale of mistaken identity. Will the naive veggies ever listen to Gopher? Schroeder and Engell keep kids guessing with loads of silliness, suspense, & surprise!

I Am Every Good Thing
Written by Derrick Barnes & illustrated by Gordon C. James
Lush portraits, lyrical language, and high-energy spreads celebrate the confidence and pride and WORTH of black boys. Affirming to the core. I AM EVERY GOOD THING is a new favorite and deserves a place on every bookshelf.
