A young girl named Mia is the main character of this story about orcas living in the San Juan Islands of Washington state. Much of the factual information focuses on Granny, a senior leader of three whale pods, who lived to be over 100 years old. Evocative watercolor illustrations show the appealing whales swimming and communicating, with the text integrating the whales’ signature sounds into the story.
night train, night train by robert burleigh and wendy minorr
Welcome to Wendell Minor's Website
A child boards a train in the country just as twilight turns to evening. As the train bumps and hurries along the tracks, the child notices colors: the red of a blinking signal light, a blue glow from a house’s window, orange sparks from the train’s wheels, and the yellow moon above. With text and images as rhythmic as a train itself, Night Train takes readers on a nostalgic ride from night until journey’s end at dawn.

the children's book cover for this is the earth with pictures of animals and people
Feb. 23 is Pub Day! From SLJ: "A solid option for a read-aloud or for children to present as readers’ theater. Minor’s detailed watercolor spreads strongly support the writing by emphasizing Earth’s natural beauty, the effects of industrialization on the environment, and the bright outcomes of treating the natural world with respect. An authors’ note and an illustrator’s note highlight the simple steps kids can take to go green. VERDICT A fine selection for reading and sharing."

If You Were a Penguin
Breezy rhymes introduce each dazzling double-page scene of penguin life, from “flying” underwater to tobogganing over the arctic snow to feeding a pair of adorably fuzzy chicks. Wendell’s vibrant large-scale figures, set against bracing polar landscapes, have enough personality to captivate a crowd, but their breathtaking detail demands the closer inspection and shared exploration of a lap-sit session.
a book cover for give her the river
Red Badge of Courage Frame
A father decides a river best captures his feelings for his young daughter. A gift of life and changing beauty, a river encompasses so much more than meets the eye. It is the swan gliding upon its surface in the morning, the craggy stone steps leading down to its bank, the puppy trotting alongside a jogger on the path beside it, the sailboat gently drifting, and the hammock, perfect for reading stories in, beneath the willows that drape overhead.
