Reading contracts all day long. Not bad, but not quite as fun as reading about hobbits.

Game Changers: The Story of Venus and Serena Williams
Written by Lesa Cline-Ransome & illustrated by James E. Ransome
Venus and Serena Williams are sports icons who set the standard for professional tennis for years. Many biographical picture books are uninteresting and difficult to make it through, but this one was fascinating. I learned so many things about these athletes I had never heard before, and theirs is a story that can be an inspiration. It is definitely long, each page packed full of 2-4 large paragraphs, so young children may have a difficult time staying focused through the story. There is enough interesting detail though, that it's manageable.

Cuauhtémoc
Written by Patty Rodriguez and Ariana Stein & illustrated by Citlali Reyes
This is a fantastic dual language shapes book. The only words on each page are the names of the shape in English and Spanish. The illustrations are beautiful and creative. Each page teaches a shape on the left and then incorporates that shape into a design reminiscent of the ancient Aztec empire and the emperor Cuauhtemoc.

Brave Irene
Written & illustrated by William Steig
Like many older picture books, Brave Irene is longer and full of many more words than today's popular picture books. The story is long and honestly a bit slow, so readers will have to be a little brave themselves to make it through. The story is certainly dated--all about a little girl delivering a dress to a duchess during the middle of a snowstorm--but I was excited to find a book that focused almost entirely on a strong young girl.
