Liz Miller is new to our Grade II teaching team, and she chose a favorite picture book, The Snatchabook, for her library selfie. When asked why she loves this charming story, she admitted that books that rhyme are a passion. She also values the message of reading together. Ms. Miller is even writing her own picture book-- with rhyming text, of course!
Salaam Reads is an exciting new imprint that "aims to introduce readers of all faiths and backgrounds to a wide variety of Muslim children and families and offer Muslim kids an opportunity to see themselves reflected positively in published works." Our library just acquired the first book, Yo Soy Muslim, written by Muslim and Latino poet Mark Gonzalez, and illustrated by the talented Mehrdokht Amini. `
