Jump at the Sun: The True Life Tale of Unstoppable Storycatcher Zora Neale Hurston

product image
$17.99
From the Newbery Honor-winning author of Genesis Begins Again comes a shimmering picture book that shines the light on Zora Neale Hurston, the extraordinary writer and storycatcher extraordinaire who changed the face of American literature.

Zora was a girl who hankered for tales like bees for honey. Now, her mama always told her that if she wanted something, "to jump at de sun", because even though you might not land quite that high, at least you'd get off the ground. So Zora jumped from place to place, from the porch of the general store where she listened to folktales, to Howard University, to Harlem. And everywhere she jumped, she shined sunlight on the tales most people hadn't been bothered to listen to until Zora. The tales no one had written down until Zora. Tales on a whole culture of literature overlooked...until Zora. Until Zora jumped.

Kaia y las abejas

product image
$16.99
The author of Those Shoes and an award-winning illustrator team up for the story of a girl who tries to overcome her fear of bees to see how amazing they are.

Kaia es de los valientes.

Valiente como el más picante de los chiles picantes. Pero solo hay una cosa que la asusta: ¡las abejas! Y en este momento miles de abejas viven en su azotea porque el papá de Kaia es un apicultor.

Su papá dice que el mundo necesita abejas y por eso ellos son apicultores. Pero solo él va a la azotea donde están las abejas. Kaia no. Podrá ella encontrar la forma de ser la niña valiente que siempre dice que es?

De la autora Maribeth Boelts y la ilustradora Angela Dominguez nos llega esta historia sincera y cercana sobre la valentía, la compasión y la importancia de las abejas para nuestro mundo.

Kaia is the brave type. Like hottest-hot-pepper brave. But there is one thing that scares her: BEES! And right now, thousands of bees live on her roof because Kaia's dad is a beekeeper. Her dad says that the world needs bees and that's why they are beekeepers. But only he goes on the roof, not Kaia -- unless she can find a way to be the brave girl she always says she is. Against a sunny city setting, author Maribeth Boelts and illustrator Angela Dominguez depict Kaia's small courageous steps -- and her tiny insect neighbors -- with great empathy and charm. Buzzing with storytime potential, Kaia and the Bees is an honest and relatable tale about bravery and compassion, as well as the importance of bees to our world.
