Holiday Storytime & Grand Meander!
By Lynne Rae Perkins

 A beautifully illustrated, positively charming tale of friendship, perseverance, bad weather, and cake! This longer picture book is full of great jokes and stupendous words, which make it an excellent story to share with school-aged kids. Highly recommended for reading while snuggled up together.   — Angela (RBB Staff)
Roll with It
By Jamie Sumner

Ellie is really tired of everyone making assumptions about her based on her wheelchair—and, now that she's moved in with her grandparents, assumptions based on the part of town they live in. Ellie just wants to help her grandpa, keep her mom from working too hard, and become a famous professional baker. Starting at a new school is going to throw all her plans out of whack—until she starts making her first ever friends. Told in a great voice, this is a story of pie, family, and dealing with prejudice.   — Lily (RBB Staff)
Look Both Ways
By Jason Reynolds

More incredible storytelling from Jason Reynolds! This collection of ten short stories is told by ten teenagers, set on ten different blocks, all in the same neighborhood. The stories stand alone but are cleverly connected. Each story is a snapshot of these middle school lives and reminds us that there is always more to everyone’s story. Reynolds shows us the complexities and challenges these teens face, their courage and hope, and the generosity, love, and joy that come from their neighbors and neighborhood. Holly (RBB Staff)
Nothing to See Here
By Kevin Wilson

The best book of the year! What an absurd premise this story is based on, and yet, it somehow completely works. Kids spontaneously combusting? Yep. I can absolutely believe it. I believe that people will take different things away from this story, but the beauty of loving the unloved weaves through this charming narrative until the extraordinary end. And what an end it is! (I listened to this book via Libro.fm and am in love with Marin Ireland's voice. She is amazing.) — Julie (RBB Staff)
