Kindred Spirits:
Shilombish Ittibachvffa

A nonfiction picture book about the inspiring true pay-it-forward story that bridges two continents, 175 years, and two events in history—connecting Ireland, Choctaw Nation, Navajo Nation, and the Hopi Tribe.

★ ". . . a moving, uplifting picture book about the power of empathy."

—Shelf Awareness, starred review

Clack, Clack! Smack!

Vann wants to be a star player, but he's not as fast as his friend Jesse; a game of traditional Cherokee stickball creates a moment of growth as he understands there's more than one way to be a good teammate.

★ "Stand and cheer for this fast-paced tale of sportsmanship and community."

—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Sami's Special Day

Eid al-Adha won't be the same without Sami's Dede, but a surprise encounter reminds this boy of his grandfather's generous spirit and fills Dede's last gift with more meaning than he could have possibly imagined.

★ "A gift to all readers!"

—School Library Journal, starred review

Radar and the Raft

This science-history-nonfiction-adventure mashup expertly weaves together the origins of radar technology with the tale of a stunning ocean rescue during World War II.

★ "A rare and exhilarating mix of hard science and seagoing terror."

—Kirkus Reviews, starred review
