"What else is possible?" 12-year-old
Amira and her father ask one another of various hypothetical situations. Then, they imagine positive outcomes that could come from something that seems negative at its outset. This is a way for framing THE RED PENCIL (2014), a book written as a series of poems. Together, the poems tell a story of a family in Darfur. War bubbles around the edges, until it comes roaring into Amira's village and displaces everyone who survives. Stuck in a refugee camp, Amira begins to quench her thirst for an education. Then, she dreams for more. Amidst unspeakable horror, THE RED PENCIL speaks to resilience and love, and carves out space for hope. What else is possible?
Throughout, Shane W. Evans' sketches illustrate Andrea Davis Pinkney's prose (and bring to life Amira's own sand drawings). Ages 9 and up.

It seems everyone we talk to has a favorite Marla Frazee book, but here's Ruby's wordless pick: The Farmer and the Clown. A young clown falls off a circus train and forms an unlikely friendship with a serious-looking farmer. We especially love the series of small vignettes that show the two having fun together. ❤️
