All the positive press and starred reviews for #AmalUnbound by @aishacs is completely warranted. Book club this one, friends; read it in conversation w/ #malalayousafzai . #kidsliterature #diversityinliterature
Bob is a really nice book about some the valuable things we lose (in time & distance). @wendy_mass & Rebecca Stead’s Livy & Bob are absolutely charming. A mystery & family drama that has enough fantasy & realism for *all* the grade school readers. #kidsliterature
We struggled to find a title for Natalya’s senior Chapbook until we listened to #therobcast Episode176 #alexandershaia. When @realrobbell says “that’s a title of something” & we looked at each other & smiled.
Finished this sad & lovely & contemplative read the other day. Exist West is an excellent choice for a diverse read that is practically mundane in its humanness, & weird & wrenching in the everyday timelessness of its content. #refugees #diversityinliterature
still reeling a bit. so incredibly beautiful; a story so moving & strange & perfect in a way only #JesseBall can construct it....my heart & brain is so full right now. #census #literature #perfectlastparagraph
If Buffy had emigrated from Kolkata... @princesskiranmala tells a comedic, emotional, mythic, science-inflected story of fantasy & adventure & self-discovery that should even appeal to the staunchest realistic-fiction-only-reading-grade-schooler (which is no easy feat—-I think it’s the vulnerable reflections, the dialog, & the tinge of romance). #diversityinliterature #kidsliterature
Oh, Wes Anderson, Isle of Dogs was visually stunning & deliriously funny—a perfect Sunday afternoon treat with mi familia & friends. @th3lostb0y @talya_wren @clockwork_faerie @fitz_1066
