Love carries Vega throughout her journey with her brother. The kids talk about the problems they have in daily life and discussed how a book can inspire them and help them to get through their ups and downs. Kids played a line-matching game to know more about names. In a book, everything was written for a reason, including names. Kids got to discuss why Orcas were named after constellations.  All bookworms watched a video and shared happiness of J35's new born baby, who had carried her dead calf in 2018 for 17 days before giving it up.

    Fish in a Tree

    Lynda Mullaly Hunt

    Hardcover (Nancy Paulsen Books, Feb. 5, 2015)
    A New York Times Bestseller!The author of the beloved One for the Murphys gives readers an emotionally-charged, uplifting novel that will speak to anyone who’s ever thought there was something wrong with them because they didn’t fit in. “Everybody is smart in different ways. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its life believing it is stupid.” Ally has been smart enough to fool a lot of smart people. Every time she lands in a new school, she is able to hide her inability to read by creating clever yet disruptive distractions. She is afraid to ask for help; after all, how can you cure dumb? However, her newest teacher Mr. Daniels sees the bright, creative kid underneath the trouble maker. With his help, Ally learns not to be so hard on herself and that dyslexia is nothing to be ashamed of. As her confidence grows, Ally feels free to be herself and the world starts opening up with possibilities. She discovers that there’s a lot more to her—and to everyone—than a label, and that great minds don’t always think alike.

    See You in the Cosmos

    Jack Cheng

    Paperback (Puffin Books, May 15, 2018)
    “I haven't read anything that has moved me this much since Wonder.” —Jennifer Niven, author of All the Bright PlacesA space-obsessed boy and his dog, Carl Sagan, take a journey toward family, love, hope, and awe in this funny and moving novel for fans of Counting by 7s, Walk Two Moons, and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. 11-year-old Alex Petroski loves space and rockets, his mom, his brother, and his dog Carl Sagan—named for his hero, the real-life astronomer. All he wants is to launch his golden iPod into space the way Carl Sagan (the man, not the dog) launched his Golden Record on the Voyager spacecraft in 1977. From Colorado to New Mexico, Las Vegas to L.A., Alex records a journey on his iPod to show other lifeforms what life on earth, his earth, is like. But his destination keeps changing. And the funny, lost, remarkable people he meets along the way can only partially prepare him for the secrets he’ll uncover—from the truth about his long-dead dad to the fact that, for a kid with a troubled mom and a mostly not-around brother, he has way more family than he ever knew. Jack Cheng’s debut is full of joy, optimism, determination, and unbelievable heart. To read the first page is to fall in love with Alex and his view of our big, beautiful, complicated world. To read the last is to know he and his story will stay with you a long, long time."Stellar." —Entertainment Weekly“Life-embracing.” —The Wall Street Journal"Works beautifully." —The New York Times Book Review “Irresistible.” —The Chicago Tribune“The best I've read in a long, long time.” —Holly Goldberg Sloan, author of Counting by 7s“Riveting, inspiring, and sometimes hilarious.” —Kirkus, starred review“A propulsive stream-of-conscious dive.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review “A gift—a miracle.” —Paul Griffin, author When Friendship Followed Me Home “Exuberant.” —Booklist "Full of the real kind of magic." —Ally Condie, author of Matched "Absorbing, irresistible." —Common Sense Media“Incredible.” —BookRiot "Full of innocence and unwavering optimism." —SLC "Inspiring." —Time for Kids“Powerfully affirms our human capacity for grace and love and understanding.” —Gary D.

    Space Case

    Stuart Gibbs

    Paperback (Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, Oct. 13, 2015)
    It’s a murder mystery on the moon in this humorous and suspenseful space adventure from the author of Belly Up and Spy School that The New York Times Book Review called “a delightful and brilliantly constructed middle grade thriller.”Like his fellow lunarnauts—otherwise known as Moonies—living on Moon Base Alpha, twelve-year-old Dashiell Gibson is famous the world over for being one of the first humans to live on the moon. And he’s bored out of his mind. Kids aren’t allowed on the lunar surface, meaning they’re trapped inside the tiny moon base with next to nothing to occupy their time—and the only other kid Dash’s age spends all his time hooked into virtual reality games. Then Moon Base Alpha’s top scientist turns up dead. Dash senses there’s foul play afoot, but no one believes him. Everyone agrees Dr. Holtz went onto the lunar surface without his helmet properly affixed, simple as that. But Dr. Holtz was on the verge of an important new discovery, Dash finds out, and it’s a secret that could change everything for the Moonies—a secret someone just might kill to keep...

    George Washington's World

    Joanna Foster, Genevieve Foster

    Paperback (Beautiful Feet Bks, April 10, 1997)
    1942 Newbery Honor Title The period measured by the life of George Washington 1732 to 1799 was one of revolution and change in many parts of the world as Enlightenment thinking took hold in the minds of men. When George was a young man, Benjamin Franklin was the most well-known American, Louis XV was on the throne of France, and George II was king of England. Father Junipero Serra had just arrived in Mexico to work with the Panes Indians. Mozart and Bach were writing their immortal music and Voltaire warred with his pen against Ignorance, Injustice and Superstition. The young nobleman Lafayette watched the feisty American colonies with fascinated interest as they stood up to Mother England when she sought to tax them unfairly. James Cook was sent by the Royal Society of London to Tahiti where their team of astronomers might observe a total eclipse of the sun and thereby accurately measure the distance between the earth and the sun. These are just a few of the wonderful narratives explored by Foster in her Newbery Honor Book of 1940. Prolifically illustrated with intriguing line drawings and detailed timelines, Foster's telling of the life story of George Washington does justice to the man it celebrates.

    Abraham Lincoln's World

    Genevieve Foster, Joanna Foster

    Paperback (Beautiful Feet Books, Dec. 1, 2003)
    1945 Newbery Honor Title With her whimsical and informative illustrations and timelines, Foster has magnificently captured a remarkable age and a remarkable man. The author earned her reputation by her masterful display of "horizontal history" telling the story of world events in the geo-political sphere, while giving as much importance to advances in science, medicine, music, art, literature, and exploration. Thus, while Abe Lincoln was a boy romping the woods of Kentucky, Thomas Jefferson was completing his eighth year as president, George III reigned in Great Britain and Napolean was about to meet his Waterloo. Beethoven and Sir Walter Scott were at the height of their creative powers, while Victor Hugo was staging plays at school. By the time Lincoln was old enough to help his father chop wood, other young boys and girls were being prepared for the future parts they would play. Harriet Beecher was reading anything she could get her hands on, Charles Darwin was collecting toads, crabs and shells, and the impoverished boy Dickens was working in a shoe blacking factory in London. When Lincoln opened his shop in Salem, David Livingstone was exploring Africa, and thousands of Americans were opening up the West on the Oregon Trail. The spirit of freedom was moving around the globe as the abolitionist movement gained power in the States and serfdom saw its demise in Russia. Technologically the world was bursting with the invention of the telegraph, the railroad and the steamboat.

    Any good books for a 10-year-old girl?

    I've tried Science Comics and they work pretty well for a range of ages. Also, I might reccomend Land of Stories if you want some fiction.

    My 7yr old boy only reads comic books? Any suggestions?

    Hi there, if Captain Underpants and Dogman series bring your boy fun, they shall be fine but they are not the best choices for you because these series don't use the best language and they have violence and nudity in them. There are other comic books that carry positive messages. Here are a few suggestions, including some funny easy chapter books.

    Has anyone read or have any input on Mo Willems Elephant and Piggie series?

    My 3 years old girl loves it so much. She literally laugh out loud when I read every book for her. I love this set for the illustration and the story. It mostly only draw the elephant and the pig figure with minimum background. The elephant and pig have very rich facial expressions and body movement which are the exact two things kids focus on during interaction. My daughter loves to perform the story. She plays pig, I play elephant or we exchange. For the story, I found it usually starts with some conflicts, but in the end, there's not only a solution but a very happy ending turns conflict into an opportunity to make new friends or improve friendships (just like when you change the way to treat a situation, a new door opens for you). Rather than just solve the conflict, it makes kids forget the conflict and focus on a warm picture. This kind of happy ending is more than ideal for kids. It's definitely what kids are looking forward to everyday during all of their interaction with people. So my daughter would laugh for every story because it's funny while satisfying her feelings. Not saying the well known advantage like the language is simpler than simple that my staying at home for 10 months bilingual girl understands at least 90% of every book. And I would love have these books to help my daughter learning story telling hopefully in some time soon.

    Bringing In the New Year

    Grace Lin

    Hardcover (Knopf Books for Young Readers, Jan. 8, 2008)
    This exuberant story follows a Chinese American family as they prepare for the Lunar New Year. Each member of the family lends a hand as they sweep out the dust of the old year, hang decorations, and make dumplings. Then it’s time to put on new clothes and celebrate with family and friends. There will be fireworks and lion dancers, shining lanterns, and a great, long dragon parade to help bring in the Lunar New Year. And the dragon parade in our book is extra long–on a surprise fold-out page at the end of the story. Grace Lin’s artwork is a bright and gloriously patterned celebration in itself! And her story is tailor-made for reading aloud.
