She Sings A Song

She sings a song about family and friends and how much we can miss them and how they
are always close to us when we think happy thoughts about them and love them 
no matter where they are.

ACCORDIONLY Picture Book Celebrates Music and Family


Tune in on Sunday, May 3 at 10:00 am (PST) 
Bay Book Festival Unbound

Accordionly: Abuelo and Opa Make Music ~  

When both grandpas, Abuelo and Opa, visit at the same time, they can’t understand each other’s language and there is a lot of silence. The grandson’s clever thinking helps find a way for everyone to share the day together as two cultures become one family.
This unique book includes a bonus fold-out and a note from the author sharing the true story of his own family.  - Publisher, Magination Press
“Genhart draws on his own family's history for inspiration in his newest diversity-celebrating picture book…. This is a reassuring story, emphasizing that though we may be different we can find common ground, an especially important message for multiracial/multiethnic children who can often feel pulled between competing identities… Burris' dot-eyed and brightly colored illustrations are darling, highlighting each culture well…. As mixed-race families continue to grow, this title is sure to find a ready audience.” —Kirkus Reviews

A Timely And Wonderful Picture Book About Feelings

 This picture book, from Free Spirit Publishing, invites children to count their way through the 1-2-3s of feelings that are big, small and in between.
  


This book offers fun and healthy ways for children to identify, understand, and help themselves with their many powerful emotions.

Children also learn that feelings change and that there are lots of ways to express their emotions and work through them.

A few illustration spots from pages in this timely picture book...
