Summer will be over before we know it! Join this powerhouse panel of publishing insiders for a lively conversation highlighting inspiring titles that are sure to become favorites. Here is just a taste of what will have your readers FALLING in love:

Our Little Kitchen is the latest picture book from Caldecott honor winner Jillian Tamaki. Readers follow a crew of resourceful neighbors coming together to prepare a meal for their community. It’s a celebration of full bellies and looking out for one another.

Evelyn Del Rey Is Moving Away  From Newbery Medalist Meg Medina and illustrator Sonia Sánchez comes the bittersweet story of two girls who will always be each other’s número uno, even though one is moving away.

If You Come to Earth is a glorious guide to our home planet, and a call for us to take care of both Earth and each other. This stunning book is inspired by the thousands of children Sophie Blackall has met during her travels around the world in support of UNICEF and Save the Children.

The Wanderer  A little paper boat journeys across the ocean, past reefs and between icebergs, through schools of fish, swaying water plants, and terrifying sea monsters. We hope that readers young and old will find the strength and inspiration that we did in this quietly powerful story by Peter Van den Ende about growing, learning, and life's ups and downs.
