People Remember

product image
$19.99

From award-winning, New York Times bestselling author Ibi Zoboi comes her debut picture book--a tour de force that uses the principles of Kwanzaa to talk about the history of African Americans. This lyrical, powerful tribute is sumptuously illustrated by New Yorker artist and rising star Loveis Wise. A beautiful gift for readers of all ages and for fans of Kadir Nelson's Heart and Soul. A Coretta Scott King Honor Book!

The People Remember tells the journey of African descendants in America by connecting their history to the seven principles of Kwanzaa. It begins in Africa, where people were taken from their homes and families. They spoke different languages and had different customs.

Yet they were bound and chained together and forced onto ships sailing into an unknown future. Ultimately, all these people had to learn one common language and create a culture that combined their memories of home with new traditions that enabled them to thrive in this new land.

Sumptuously illustrated, this is an important book to read as a family--a story young readers can visit over and over again to deepen their understanding of African American history in relation to their own lives and current social justice movements. By turns powerful and revealing, this is a lyrical narrative that tells the story of survival, as well as the many moments of joy, celebration, and innovation of Black people in America.

Perkin's Perfect Purple: How a Boy Created Color with Chemistry

product image
$18.99
The fascinating true story of groundbreaking chemist William Perkin, who used the scientific method to invent a new way for creating the color purple.
Many years ago, the color purple was available only to a privileged few. Making purple was tricky. The dye was concocted from a certain snail, and later, from plants, bugs, and rocks. Then it had to be soaked in minerals and . . . urine! The process was very complicated and expensive (not to mention smelly!).
Until 1856, when a boy named William Henry Perkin invented a new way. While testing a hypothesis about a cure for malaria, he found that his experiment resulted in something else -- something vivid and rare for the times: synthetic PURPLE. Perkin, a pioneer of the modern scientific method, made numerous advances possible, including canned food and chemotherapy. But it was his creation of purple that started it all.
Authors Tami Lewis Brown and Debbie Loren Dunn craft a compelling tale, and Francesca Sanna's dynamic art is a joyous celebration of Perkin's impactful purple.

It took the author two years to sculpt little Pina (named after the author's cat, which she named after German-born choreographer Pina Bausch), build his shadow-box home, photograph the book's scenes, and add Photoshop layers to create the book's arresting illustrations. Pina offers safe access for young readers to the scary territory explored by Coraline, The Night Gardener, and other stories for older kids.

    Por vosotros (For You)

    product image
    $16.95

    This poetic tribute to fathers and mothers follows the journey of one family through the ups and downs of life over many years. A pleasantly colorful celebration of family love.

    Parents love us, protect us, teach us, help us, and offer a secure, comfortable shelter for us to feel protected. Their love is beyond measure, they are willing to do anything to make us happy. But us children also feel the same way. We can surely perceive when our father feels blue or sense the fatigue our mother tries to hide. If only we could make your worries vanish for good...

    We would do anything for you. We would eat all the vegetables, without grumbling. We would face up to all our fears. We would magically solve all of your problems. Time may pass, but you are always there to catch us when we fall, and we will make sure to be there to hold you when you are down.

    Un poético tributo a los padres y madres que sigue el viaje de una familia a través de los altibajos de la vida durante los años. Una celebración del amor familiar llena de color.

    Los padres nos aman, nos protegen, nos enseñan, nos ayudan y nos ofrecen un refugio seguro y cómodo para que nos sintamos protegidos. Su amor va más allá de toda medida, están dispuestos a hacer cualquier cosa para hacernos felices. Pero los niños también sentimos lo mismo. Podemos percibir cuando papá está preocupado o sentir el cansancio que nuestra madre intenta ocultar. Si tan solo pudiéramos hacer desaparecer sus preocupaciones para siempre...

    Haríamos cualquier cosa por vosotros. Nos comeríamos, sin rechistar, todas las verduras. Nos enfrentaríamos, con valentía, a todos nuestros miedos, solucionaríamos, por arte de magia, todas vuestras penas. Aunque el tiempo avance, vosotros siempre estáis ahí para atraparnos cuando caemos, y nosotros nos aseguraremos de estar ahí para abrazaros cuando os sintáis tristes.
