Once again, Julia Sarcone-Roach has created the perfect story-time read-aloud. This delicious picture book features language that will delight your tongue like chocolate ganache and characters who will warm you like muffin straight from the oven. There are also little surprises, like the burst of jelly in the middle of your donut....did I mention you should probably have a snack on hand while reading?

With Anastasia Higginbotham, there's no sugar coating. Not My Idea encourages white children to ask hard questions, to call out racism when they see it, to educate themselves about the history of white supremacy, and to recognize that fixing the problem is one of their societal responsibilities. A poignant book presented with creative mixed-media.

Why yes, this book is quite fabulous. It has a cute story for kids based on Snow White, except most of the characters are ponies. Bright colors, cute characters, and even some humor adults will appreciate - you can't go wrong.

The gorgeous book for all ages is more than an adventure through a forest. The lush illustrations play with negative space; some of the elements rise up from the page adding a tactile dimension to the book. Part meditation, part expedition, this book contains more than meets the eye.
