Hello, friends! Our book today is EVERYBODY’S WELCOME, written by Patricia Hegarty and illustrated by Greg Abbott, a sweet tale of communities built from acceptance.

A little mouse sits in a forest clearing, dreaming of a home for shelter and warmth. As he begins to build it, a frog wanders up, despondent over the loss of his own home pond. The mouse invites him to help build, and they will share the house together. As the project continues, more animals show up, looking for a place to belong; most have lost their homes or been turned away from their communities for being different. Together, they work as a team to build something to shelter everyone who needs it, creating a home that is more than walls and a roof, but acceptance and love as well.

This one had a wonderfully sweet message that is thoroughly needed right now. While the issues that lead the animals to the housing project are very storybook-oriented (Bear is turned away for being too scary, the birds are searching for a home after their tree has been cut down), there is definitely hints of how people can also find themselves in need of community due to their circumstances. It helps to draw a nice parallel to our own communities, and how diversity and acceptance can help them to be strong and kind. So it’s a bit of an odd choice that the finished product of the home is never shown; while this may be alluding to the fact that communities are forever growing and changing, or that home is not simply a building but the people who fill it, it still gives the story an incomplete feeling - I wish I could have seen the animals enjoying the physical fruits of their labor. However, the classical kidlit-inspired illustrations are darling, and JJ loved them. The length is also fine for any age, and the cutouts and unique page design make for some fun visual flourishes. So while the ending is a little abrupt, this one has a strong core message and some great visuals - it’s definitely worth a look. Baby Bookworm approved!

Happy 50th Anniversary of the moon walk!!! Last night we read “Moon’s First Friend” by #SusannaLeonardHill illustrated by #ElisaPaganelli 
50 years ago today 3 men walked on the moon and the moon had its first friend visit 🌚

this book was a great follow up to a week long at NASA Space Camp 🚀 I loved the bonus parent info at the end and the QR codes so you could listen to the blastoff and the moon landing 🌙

This is Cer. From The Road Ahead, written by @zoe_tucker_design 🦕 🦖(where’s the triceratops emoji?) Character sheet. Poses. Next week we’re on to environments 🎉😬👌🏼@makeartthatsells #matsicb6

.

When I asked Daisy is I could borrow her triceratops soft toy to draw, she agreed and said that I could draw the hood to cover her face so that it protects her from the sun. She’s only 2 years old, people. #geniuschild Daisy also said that the dinosaur needed to be blue with blue polka dots. Or pink polka dots, or purple polka dots. I went with the blue, still undecided on the dots. #proudmama .

You’ve met the World’s Worst Children – now prepare yourselves for something much, much worse in The World's Worst Teachers!

You’ve met the World’s Worst Children – now prepare yourselves for something much, much worse in The World's Worst Teachers! Double Tap if you're excited for this new book from @dwalliams!

Here's some great books to help you lead your kids in conversations about race.

When I was a kid, I called people by the color of their clothing: "You know mom, that orange person. Near the purple one walking down the street?" I remember the first time my daughter heard someone else mention someone who was black, and she argued that they were light brown, "Don't you guys know anything?" Point being, conversations about race can be complex, especially from a child's point of view.

But we don't do it alone. There are great books like these (this stack I found at @balboapark @museumofman in their dismantling race section (which is great, BTW if you're ever travelling in #sandiego) and have read some with my kids. @scraping_raisins also has a 30 Day conversations on race with your kids to check out, as well as @lisa_vanengen book, Social Justice For All, has a chapter on dismantling race with kids.

Have you had conversations wirh your kids about race? How did they go? Let me know in the comments (or any resources you've used you'd like to share!). #race #racism #conversationstarters #parenting #momblog #justkids #justicemakers #compassionatekids #raisingglobalcitizens #globalcitizens #parentinghelp #ethnicity #awkwardconversations #justice #livejustly #girlmom #boymom #dismantlingracism #balboapark #childrensbooks #booksonrace #bookstagram

Erin didn’t order this, but when I saw this on her feed I could not resist painting it. Have you ever felt that way? Her girls are adorable (I have a theory that I love painting little girls so much because I have 3 boys..😂🙈🤷‍♀️) that door is to die for and the whole style of the photo gives such a sweet, innocent, sisterly wibe. ❤️ Let’s all tag Erin (@cottonstem) so she can see it and claim it, if she wants! Oh, and swipe ➡️ for a closer look.

These busy books are so cool! They're the Usborne books that first caught my attention. It's such a fun concept! Each book features 3-4 tracks that a wind-up or pull-back toy runs on. Plus the details of each scene tells a story and always gives you something to look at.
.
We have two of these, the 🚂 train and ✈ airplane. My boys get such a kick out if these. There's a bunch more including cars, a ladybug, and Santa in his sleigh.

July 21. In case you didn’t know, ComicCon has been going on this weekend in San Diego. One of the sure to be hot topics of #la19scbwi is the rise in popularity of the graphic novel. Do you have a current favorite? 
Only 19 days to go. 
Today’s tip: clean out your bag (tote, backpack, purse, etc) now so you aren’t carrying around things you don’t need. Also, stick a tag 🏷 on it, so it can be returned to you, should you become separated. #75daystola19scbwi #kidlit #kidbookstagram #childrensbooks #childrensillustrationswriterslife

For the 7-9s, we took up a little challenge by moving away from picture books, and read a collection of short stories, "Tales for the Perfect Child".
.
We started out by envisioning the perfect child. Most of them saw the perfect child as one who did well in school, but most importantly, was kind and helped out at home! Each child had to present their version to the rest of the group.
.
Then, for the storytelling session - after reading one story to them (and having them confused at first, before realising its humour and started laughing), the children requested to read aloud to their friends! Two of them then read aloud while the rest followed. Through our discussion, we concluded that while these children were smart, they weren't right! .
For our final activity, we turned the stories into mini skits! The children did a good job as they interpreted the stories by themselves, and added lots of actions to highlight certain points.
.
For the next month, when given a choice between a picture book and a chapter book, it was a resounding YES TO chapter books! Looks like they are ready to be challenged further!

With "When the Dragons Came", we started out by decorating the letter D, and had every child name a word that started with the letter D! I was impressed that our two littlest ones, who were barely or not even 4, could participate in this little game as well! .
This was followed by an interactive storytelling session, where we learnt that we couldn't judge others by what they looked like, that we had to TALK TO THEM to find out more about them first!
.
Then, came the fun craft! We made fire breathing dragons! Thanks for the idea, @sturdyforcommonthings ! .
So much fun with the little ones, let's see what's in store for August! .

Archie dug a CAVERNOUS hole like Finnian. It was so cavernous, it needed to be fenced off for safety! He has dug deep for a story, but he’s not sure he’s found one yet. He might just read The Hole Idea again..

Lovely day yesterday walking along the beach at Long Reef NSW. What a treat, seeing Pelicans along the beach, Mantarays close to shore and amazing rock formations.

Sunday Shelfie for your troubles! I organize by category (with some exceptions). The top row is classics, the middle is children's lit & myths/folktales, and the bottom row is YA. I also have a shelf for Percy Jackson books, one for nonfiction, and one for fantasy/fiction. Love to hear how y'all organize your shelves!
