A Parade of Elephants by Kevin Henkes

Staff Pick

A Parade of Elephants (Greenwillow, $18.99) isn't something you see every day, but it's just life as usual for five little pachyderms. Their daily journey takes them through a panoply of landscapes, from hills to caves and everything in between. While the herd's daytime adventures will fascinate future bookworks, nightfall brings a starry bedtime ritual and a sleepy ending that will have grownups joining Kevin Henkes in wishing sleepers everywhere a gentlre "good night." Age 3-6.

They Call Me Güero: A Border Kid's Poems by David Bowles

Staff Pick

Upset that his freckled skin and reddish hair cause others to assume he’s an outsider in his own culture, a Mexican-American seventh grader gripes to his father that They Call Me Güero (Cinco Puntos, $12.95)—a nickname reserved for light-skinned boys. But his close-knit family and nerdy friends, los Bobbys, have his back. Thanks to his English teacher, Ms. Wong, Güero discovers how poetry can help him both discover and express himself. David Bowles portrays life on the border through a series of poems as diverse in their forms as the characters populating his exceptional novel. Ages 11-14.
