Here are six books to try for summer. Unusual. Not the same old same old, and in the best kind of way.
Little White Duck: A Childhood in China by Andres Vera Martinez
This is a graphic novel memoir written just for kids. It is beautiful and interesting and un-put-downable (I just made that word up).
Who Says Women Can't Be Doctors? by Tanya Stone
A great history of Elizabeth Blackwell, one of the first women doctors.
Poems to Learn by Heart by Caroline Kennedy
This collection is amazing. I would probably be a much better person if I had each of these memorized. Maybe I should try that...
The Mighty Lalouche by Matthew Olshan
The Voyage by Veronica Salinas
You couldn't get more simple or perfect.
Black Flame by Gerelchimeg Blackcrane
Black Beauty meets Wild Fang. Wow.
