Pictures Books You Won't Want to Miss in Spring 2021

Spring is always the season of new beginnings, resolutions, and reading goals!

Simultaneously telling stories through art and words, this season includes a moving reflection on immigration from author Mượn Thị Văn and illustrator Victo Ngai, a brand new story from Giraffes Can’t Dance creators Giles Andreae and Guy Parker-Rees, Super Bowl champion and literacy advocate Malcolm Mitchell’s very favorite book in the whole wide world, and more! 

But first, we’d like to introduce you to two very special books. 

In Little Blue Bridge, Ruby wants some blueberries and when she sets off to pick some with her brothers, they find the bridge blocked by a bully. Undeterred, Ruby builds her own bridge and teaches everyone a lesson on friendship and community.  

Inspired by model, actress, and Down syndrome advocate Sofia Sanchez, You Are Enough reminds readers that we all belong and that being different is what makes you YOU! Beautifully illustrated with a full cast of kid characters with all kinds of backgrounds, experiences, and abilities, this book reminds readers how important it is to embrace your differences, be confident, and be proud of who you are.

  • Little Blue Bridge by Brenda Maier & Sonia Sanchez
