Librarian's Pick

Our librarian Kim selected a special book this week to honor our Food Drive wrap-up. Written for children between Kindergarten and 4th grade, "LuLu and the Hunger Monster" by Erik Talkin is a story about the realities of food insecurity from a child's perspective. The main character Lulu invites kids into her world to help them understand what it's like to battle the Hunger Monster.

DEI Book Recommendation: "The Colors We Share"

Written for young readers but enjoyable for all ages, "The Colors We Share" features portraits that celebrate the diverse beauty of human skin.

Author and artist Angélica Dass questions the concept of race and the limited categories we use to describe each other by exposing how skin is composed of many colors. The book challenges us to reconsider how we see ourselves and others through similarities and differences.

Listen to the author speak about her work in the video below and consider checking a copy out for you and your family.
