2. Yes, Jesus Loves You

by: Heather TietzNancy Miller
Release date: Jul 01, 2009
Number of Pages: 20
Find in Library
Read Review
Yes, Jesus Loves You is a soothing stroll through God s creation, in lullaby form. His love for us can be seen throughout all he s made. The very shape and function of our physical bodies were designed by Him. Animals, great and small, the elements, tame and unreserved, plants, frail and strong, are often quiet lessons about God s character and His love for humankind. Even the night itself is from God the stars, a night light, the call of insects, a song, the darkness a reminder to pray.

This charming story may be sung or simply read and lends itself easily to accompanying hand movements. It is perfect for church, for school, or for putting little ones to bed with a sense of peace and joy.

Read Review
Tommy knows he wants to be an artist when he grows up. He can’t wait to get to school and have real art lessons. When Tommy gets to school and finds out that the art lessons are full of “rules”, he is surprised and dismayed. How the wise art teacher finds a way to give Tommy the freedom to create and stay within the “rules” makes a wonderfully perceptive picture book about growing up and keeping one’s individuality.

Tomie dePaola is the author and illustrator of many beloved books for children, including the Caldecott Honor Book Strega Nona. Fans of all ages will be pleased to hear that The Art Lesson is, in fact, based on the artist’s own experiences growing up, and offers a welcome glimpse into his past. This bright picture book is as covered with drawings as the walls of Tommy’s parents’ and grandparents’ houses, and sends an inspirational message to budding artists and individualists. Break out the crayons!

24. The ABCs of Black History: A Children’s Guide

by: Craig Thompson
Release date: Jan 10, 2005
Number of Pages: 32
Find in Library
Read Review
Just in time for Black History Month and every other month, too! Baltimore-based, black attorney Craig Thompson presents us with The ABCs of Black History. The ABCs celebrates 26 notable greats, past and present, like Booker T. Washington, Fannie Lou Hamer, Malcolm X, and Oprah Winfrey. A short and catchy rhyme accompanies each color-rich illustration of the historic figure. The ABCs recognizes lesser-known individuals who made their mark in our society, like Garret Morgan, inventor of the traffic light, and Lee Elder, the first black golfer invited to play in the Masters Tournament. Thompson wrote the book as a result of his fruitless search for children’s books after the birth of his daughter. He wanted cultural relevance, bright colors, and catchy rhymes. ?I wanted something that would be ideal for children of all ages,” says Thompson. ?But I also wanted to motivate them to know their history. So I combine vivid portraits with easy-to-remember lyrics from A to Z to motivate them to know their history.” The book isn’t just for black parents and their children. In fact, Thompson hopes that The ABCs will ?introduce children of all races to important people, places, and events in black history, while providing parents with the rich-color contrasts, illustrations, and rhyming patterns that they need for the proper development of their children.”

29. How I Came to Be a Writer

by: Phyllis Reynolds Naylor
Release date: Nov 30, 1987
Number of Pages: 144
Find in Library
Read Review
Phyllis Reynolds Naylor’s books are true to life, funny, and, most of all, well written — you’d think that she doesn’t have to work at writing at all. She makes it seem easy,

But it isn’t. Writing was not her first choice of a career, and even though creating stories might have been simple, getting them published was not. It took a long time — and many rejection slips — before she had a story accepted. But even that taught her more about her craft. How I Came to be a Writer is Phyllis Reynolds Naylor’s story about her stories, from her first work in kindergarten to her most recent books. Illustrated with photographs, and including samples of her earlier writing, this book will show you the inner workings of the writing process, from the spark of an idea to a book’s actual publication. Among Phyllis Reynolds Naylor’s more than 80 books for children and adults are Eddie, Incorporated and The Solomon System (both available as Aladdin paperbacks).
