Enormous Sculptures of Books Exploding Out of Buildings
The exhilarating work of Madrid-based artist Alicia Martín clearly falls into the latter category. In her dramatic Biografias series, thousands of books explode out the windows of three buildings, evoking such forces of nature as waterfalls and tornadoes. To us, these massive sculptures symbolize the boundary-busting, life-changing power of literature
You Can Be a Cool Kind Kid by Barbara Gilmour, an anti bullying book for the littles - The book is a great way to teach self-respect and respect for others. Little ones will get it AND the characters inside the book are a good diverse representation!
One Towne, One Book: When She Woke by Hillary Jordan - When She Woke is a modern day retelling of The Scarlet Letter, only BETTER! Think of what life could be like maybe 10 or 20 years in the future. Some of the references to electronics and politics make you stop and think “hey wait, IS this a real office?”.
hampioning kindness, tolerance, and understanding, the book “publicly shames” people who commit social crimes. As these crimes generally go unpunished, offenders fail to suffer a consequence, and thus, their bad behavior and unkindness continues. The book, however, delivers a consequence. It “officially” (and entertainingly) identifies 1,001 people who engage in bad humanity and unkind behavior, and labels them as “people that suck.”
