Kiranmala and the Kingdom Beyond: The Serpent's Secret by Sayantani Dasgupta

On the morning of her twelfth birthday, Kiranmala is just a regular sixth grader living in Parsippany, New Jersey…until her parents mysteriously vanish and a drooling rakkhosh demon slams through her kitchen, determined to eat her alive. Turns out there might be some truth to her parents' fantastical stories - like how Kiranmala is a real Indian princess and how she comes from a secret place not of this world. To complicate matters, two crush-worthy princes ring her doorbell, insisting they've come to rescue her. Suddenly, Kiran is swept into another dimension full of magic, winged horses, moving maps, and annoying, talking birds. There she must solve riddles and battle demons all while avoiding the Serpent King of the underworld and the Rakkhoshi Queen in order to find her parents and basically save New Jersey, her entire world, and everything beyond it.

He knows stuff about airplanes. And he can even play the piano better than anyone he knows. Actress and national autism spokesperson Holly Robinson Peete collaborates with her daughter on this book based on Holly's 10-year-old son, who has autism.

Althea Gibson: The Story of Tennis' Fleet-of-Foot Girl

Title: Althea Gibson: The Story of Tennis' Fleet-of-Foot Girl Author: Megan Reid Illustrator: Laura Freeman Publisher: Balzar + Bray Althea Gibson was the quickest, tallest, most fearless athlete in 1940s Harlem. She couldn’t sit still! When she put her mind to it, the fleet-of-foot girl reigned supreme at every sport—stickball with the boys, basketball with the girls, paddle tennis with anyone who would hit with her. But being the quickest, tallest, most fearless player in Harlem wasn’t enough for Althea. She knew she could be a tennis champion. Because of segregation, black people weren’t allowed to compete against white people in sports. Althea didn’t care. She just wanted to play tennis against the best athletes in the world. And with skill and determination, she did just that, eventually becoming the first black person—man or woman—to win a trophy at Wimbledon.

Sky High: The True Story of Maggie Gee

Title: Sky High: The True Story of Maggie Gee Author: Marissa Moss Illustrator: Carl Angel Publisher: Tricycle Press Maggie dreamed of flying--just like her favorite pilot, Amelia Earhart. She told her brothers and sisters stories of flying across oceans and deserts, and all around the world. But in the 1920s and 1930s, few girls took to the sky. Then, when Maggie grew up, her whole world changed overnight: the United States entered World War II, and everyone in her family was affected. Maggie knew that this was the time to support her country--and it was her chance to fly. Young Maggie Gee became one of only two Chinese American Women Airforce Service Pilots to serve in WWII. Based on the true adventures of a girl not bound by gravity, Marissa Moss's stirring story and Carl Angel's brilliant illustrations depict what determination, bravery, and boundless possibilities look like when dreams are allowed to soar sky high.

Trailblazer: The Story of Ballerina Raven Wilkinson

Title: Trailblazer: The Story of Ballerina Raven Wilkinson Author: Leda Schubert Illustrator: Theodore Taylor III Publisher: Little Bee Books Raven Wilkinson was born on February 2, 1935, in New York City. From the time she was a little girl, all she wanted to do was dance. On Raven's ninth birthday, her uncle gifted her with ballet lessons, and she completely fell in love with dance. While she was a student at Columbia University, Raven auditioned for the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo and was finally accepted on her third try, even after being told she couldn't dance with them because of her skin color. When she started touring with her troupe in the United States in 1955, Raven encountered much racism in the South, but the applause, alongside the opportunity to dance, made all the hardship worth it. Several years later she would dance for royalty with the Dutch National Ballet and regularly performed with the New York City Opera until she was fifty. This beautiful picture book tells the uplifting story of the first African American woman to dance for a major classical ballet company and how she became a huge inspiration for Misty Copeland. Theodore Taylor III's unique, heavy line style of illustration brings a deeper level of fluidity and life to the work, and Misty Copeland's beautifully written foreword will delight ballet and dance fans of all ages.

Patricia's Vision: The Doctor Who Saved Sight

Title: Patricia's Vision: The Doctor Who Saved Sight Author: Michelle Lord Illustrator: Alleanna Harris Publisher: Sterling Children's Books "Remember that the limits of science are not the limits of your imagination." Born in the 1940s, Patricia Bath dreamed of helping people as a doctor, even though that wasn't a career option for most women at that time-- especially African American women. This empowering biography follows Dr. Bath in her quest to save restore sight for blind people, "choos[ing] miracles" when everyone else had given up hope. Along the way, she co founded the American Institute for the Prevention of Blindness, invented a laser device for removing cataracts with less pain and more precision, and became the first African American female doctor to receive a medical patent. Dr. Bath lived her lifelong goal of helping the blind, and her story continues to inspire us today.

Ida B. Wells: Let the Truth Be Told Read Aloud

Title: Ida B. Wells: Let the Truth Be Told Author: Walter Dean Myers Illustrator: Bonnie Christensen Publisher: Amistad **Special Teaching Note - Consider discussing the use of the word slave and the importance of shifting to the term enslaved.** Using the terms African people, men, women, children, captives, and enslaved rather than slave throughout teaching helps to reiterate the fact that people were being treated like property. These words avoid the objectification of African people and the tendency to make the history and the inhumanity abstract and insignificant. This picture book biography introduces the extraordinary Ida B. Wells. Long before boycotts, sit-ins, and freedom rides, Ida B. Wells was hard at work to better the lives of African Americans. An activist, educator, writer, journalist, suffragette, and pioneering voice against the horror of lynching, she used fierce determination and the power of the pen to educate the world about the unequal treatment of blacks in the United States. In this picture book biography, award-winning, New York Times bestselling author Walter Dean Myers tells the story of this legendary figure, which blends harmoniously with the historically detailed watercolor paintings of illustrator Bonnie Christensen.

The Amazing Truth About Mister Rogers

Fred Rogers was an inspirational television personality who inspired countless children…and his long-running program Mister Rogers' Neighborhood will continue to educate young people for many generations to come. Here's the amazing truth about Mister Rogers. For much of his career, Mister Rogers was in high demand as an interview subject. But he was also considered a rather tough person to interview. Why? Well, he was just so gosh-darned nice. You see, the friendly and curious demeanor we saw on Mister Rogers' Neighborhood wasn't an act. He was literally that friendly, onscreen and off. That made him nearly impossible to interview… because he'd often steer the conversation wildly off course while trying to befriend the person interviewing him. Getting Rogers to open up and talk about himself was exceptionally hard...because he was always more interested in how his interviewer was doing. Rogers often had a profound effect on the people who interviewed him. He would end the conversation by telling the interviewer that he'd enjoyed meeting them… and then give them a little photo album of the time they'd literally just spent together. Rogers was even known to call up interviewers years after the fact just to see how they were doing. Watch the video for more of The Amazing Truth About Mister Rogers!

Best Friends Animal Society is a nonprofit organization building no-kill programs and partnerships that will bring about a day when there are No More Homeless Pets®. At the core of Best Friends' work is the dream that one day kindness will replace cruelty and animals will no longer be destroyed because they are unwanted or imperfect. Spaying and neutering will be the rule for all pets and adoption will be the first option for everyone. Making this dream a reality is the mission we call No More Homeless Pets. The society's leading initiatives in animal care and community programs are coordinated from its Kanab, Utah, headquarters, the country's largest no-kill sanctuary. This work is made possible by the personal and financial support of a grassroots network of supporters and community partners across the nation.

UNICEF : For Every Child

Today, UNICEF fights for every child's right to survive and thrive into adulthood. UNICEF is the global authority on children. No other organization has UNICEF's experience, expertise and reach. Every child is born with fundamental human rights: the right to health care and education. The right to be treated equally, and protected from harm. UNICEF is the unifying force that helps build a world where these rights are realized, for every child. Yet today, conflict, disease, exploitation and poor education keep millions of children from reaching their full potential. And when children are held back, so is our world. UNICEF's mission is to create a better world, by advocating for the protection of children's rights. To do this, we bring people together: governments, donors, humanitarian agencies, businesses and children themselves. For every child, health, education, equality, protection. This is what UNICEF does.
