Oliver's Lollipop

product image
$17.99
When his sugary dreams don't go according to plan, Oliver learns that the wide world around him might just be the sweetest thing of all.

Oliver finds the perfect lollipop on his birthday trip to the zoo, and it's all he can think about! Forget riding the carousel--he might drop his precious treat. No point roaring at the lions with his brother or engaging with any of the animals. After all, who needs the peacocks' beautiful feathers or the flamingoes' brilliant hues when there's a colorful swirly lollipop to admire?

But when one particular zoo animal threatens to ruin the fun, Oliver learns that there's plenty more to see than the candy he'd been coveting. And sharing the day--and his sweets--with his brother might just be the most special treat of all.

Praise for Oliver's Lollipop

Opening the Road: Victor Hugo Green and His Green Book

product image
$19.99

Hungry? Check the Green Book. Tired? Check the Green Book. Sick? Check the Green Book.

In the late 1930s when segregation was legal and Black Americans couldn't visit every establishment or travel everywhere they wanted to safely, a New Yorker named Victor Hugo Green decided to do something about it. Green wrote and published a guide that listed places where his fellow Black Americans could be safe in New York City. The guide sold like hot cakes! Soon customers started asking Green to make a guide to help them travel and vacation safely across the nation too. With the help of his mail carrier co-workers and the African American business community, Green's guide allowed millions of African Americans to travel safely and enjoy traveling across the nation.

In the first picture book about the creation and distribution of The Green Book, author Keila Dawson and illustrator Alleanna Harris tell the story of the man behind it and how this travel guide opened the road for a safer, more equitable America.

    product image
    $17.99
    Learn the story of TIME PERSON OF THE YEAR Greta Thunberg, the sixteen-year-old climate activist who has sparked a worldwide student movent and is demanding action from world leaders who refuse to address climate change--from acclaimed picture book creator Jeanette Winter.

    I don't want you to be hopeful. I want you to panic...I want you to act as if our house is on fire. Because it is.

    When she was fifteen years old, Greta Thunberg's teacher explained to her class that our climate is changing--the earth is getting warmer, the polar ice caps are melting, and life on earth is threatened. Greta was devastated. What could she do? If the grown-ups weren't doing enough to save the planet, Greta would have to demand change herself.

    So she went on strike, skipping school every Friday to sit outside of the Swedish Parliament building with a sign that read "School Strike for Climate." At first, Greta was the only one. But gradually, more and more students joined her, until her lone protest had sparked a worldwide student movement for action on climate change.

    Now, a year later, Greta is speaking to audiences of world leaders at important meetings like the United Nations Climate Conference and the World Economic Forum. She is leading the conversation on climate change and sparking worldwide conversation on how to save our planet. Greta is showing everyone that even the smallest person can make a big difference, and this picture book informs and inspires young readers who are beginning to learn about the world around them.
