A Concert in the Sand - Tami Shem-Tov

Staff Pick

A Concert In The Sand (Kar-Ben, $17.99) is so lovely that it is sure to join The Philharmonic Gets Dressed and Zin! Zin! Zin! a Violin in the pantheon of classic children’s books about the orchestra. This work of historical fiction depicts the first concert of the Israel Philharmonic through the eyes and ears of young Uri and his grandmother. Follow them as they walk through the streets of 1936 Tel Aviv alongside men and women who are carrying curiously-shaped containers and most certainly heading somewhere in particular. Israeli authors Tami Shem-Tov and Rachella Sandbank provide vivid text that combines with Avi Ofer’s delightful ink-and-watercolor drawings to create a poignant portrait of a significant moment in history. Ages 6-9.

Something's Fishy - Kevin McCloskey

Staff Pick

Something’s Fishy (Toon, $12.95) in Kevin McCloskey’s newest book! With his entertaining illustrations and goofball humor, the author of We Dig Worms and The Real Poop on Pigeons provides a whole school of fish facts in the increasingly popular graphic novel format. Children will discover how to determine the age of a fish by its scales—assuming, of course, that the fish has scales in the first place. McCloskey also devotes ample time to the noble goldfish, describing what easy pets they make, how they get their color, and how big they can grow in an aquarium. As always with Toon Books, adults new to the genre can refer to the back pages for practical tips on reading comics with kids. Ages 5-8.
