Did you know I have printed Space Whales on 100% recycled paper with eco-friendly ink? 🌏
Of course I would! .
With a bit more searching I have also found recycled mailers, how good is that! .
We're getting closer to lift-off! YAY!
Thanks so much for your support! 🌈🌻
We’ve been turning off the screens and reading so much more lately. Growth is happening under our roof. We’re bonding and doing our best to teach our children the way they should go.
I’m so thankful for @literati right now. A monthly subscription of new, fresh books sparks so much excitement for reading with these two. Every month since February we have received 5 age appropriate books and the package is made out to Breckly & Jack 🖤. A shipping label is included with a cute sticker for your mail carrier saying “I have a package for pick up at my front door!” Keep the ones you don’t want to part with and send back the rest. The easiest process and the babies LOVE the little extra personalized book accessories. The sweetest monthly surprise that fuels their little minds with both education and fun magic.
We loved them so much that we decided to partner with @literati! Get 25% off by swiping up@on my stories! #literati#literatiambassador#kidsbooks#sponsored
My friend Rick Foster, along with illustrator Jackie Case, have published this wonderful picture book. The words and pictures give a positive message to children around the sensitive topic of child anxiety. I highly recommend this book for any parent of children with anxiety. Go to @whyworrywally to purchase this book. Sales of the book help support @kidshelplineau 📕 #whyworrywally#childrensbooks#picturebook

Cleaning my classroom today and super proud of the library I built for my students. Here are 3 that highlight black&brown youth and young activism. #carodecolonizetheclassroom might take a break but I will keep posting pictures in the next few days of more books. Honorable mention to “Pelo de princesa” (Princess Hair).

Pour le mois de juin, nous avons décidé de leur parler d’écologie à vos petits.
Que demander de mieux qu’une BD format souple, parfaite pour les petites mains à partir de 7 ans pour lancer notre thème?
Jack se transforme en n’importe quel animal, mais il ne parle pas.
Dans ce premier tome, des enfants vont disparaître, enlevés par une mystérieuse créature qui veut sauver la forêt.
Mon fils a prêté cette Bd à tous ses copains, ainsi que le deuxième tome et j’attends de recevoir le troisième qui vient de paraître, ils ont tous adoré!
Je vous en parlerai plus tard, mais mon fils ainsi que tous les CE2 de son école on écrit et illustré un livre sur le thème de l’écologie, je l’ai reçu aujourd’hui et j’en suis très fière!
Animal Jack: le cœur de la forêt

:: Book Talk :: Tyrannosaurus Wrecks, FunJungle series, by Stuart Gibbs @stuartgibbs1
📖 Age recommendation: 8 - 12
👧🏻 This is the latest book from the FunJungle series, it’s one of my favorites, along with Panda-monium. Wear your detective hat and be ready for a lot of actions, humor, mystery!
💡The full book talk is up on Youtube, the link is in my bio.
Lil has had a beginner lesson in all that is going on in the world right now, and probably overhears more than she should from her dad and me. Racism is kind of hard for her to understand, as an extrovert who learned to say, "KIDS!" after "mama" and "Dada". We've been talking about representation in particular, and how it's important to see diversity in her bookshelf and the shows she watches. More importantly, it's important for kids who look different from us to see THEMSELVES in books, tv, and movies. She brought me this book this morning and told me I've never read it before, and she was right. I picked it up at a book fair years ago and had not read it yet. It made me cry. She told me how she would assert herself if someone didn't include her, which is good, but we also talked about how it was ALSO important to make sure the kids who look left out or lonely are included. .

Sometimes you just need a little encouragement. Second book in the Grits and the Grimels series with @ingramsparkbooks coming soon.
What’s the story Johnny Magory?! Well the story is our next book has officially began and will be here in October 🎉 📚
I’m cant take the credit for this one though. I needed the expertise of my funniest friend Sean Óg Moore who, at the ripe old age of 11, was drafted in for his professional co-writing services. 📚
Illustrated by the amazing Kim Shaw again, we’re delving into our Irish heritage BIIIIIG TIME ☘️ 🇮🇪 It may also contain a certain VW Kombi 🚌
A little rogue on an adventure around our gorgeous Emerald Isle... I for one CANNOT WAIT to share with you all. 📚 “I’ll tell you a story about Johnny Magory” 🌞

This week I'll be sharing some helpful resources for engaging children in conversations about race and racism. Let's begin with books! #1 - @embracerace has a wide range of resources, including a webinar/transcript/slides exploring 1) how to guide children to and through picture books with positive racial representations and 2) how to support children in resisting or reading against problematic, racist content.
I’m currently reaching so many children with my diversity-themed hidden-picture book. Beyond grateful that it might help to start discussions about how we’re all special but also all part of one bigger picture.
Huge thank you to all of you for helping me spread strong messages to strong kids!
And while I was yesterday (with a ranking of 1045) joking that I’ll be after a 3-digit ranking... I’m seriously at 276 now!!! Out of 8 freaking Mio books on Amazon! 😱

Guys, I can’t wait until Monday, it’s too far away and I’m having too much fun with this... 😂
So here’s part two of “Bean goes hunting”. Enjoy. ✨
And yes, there will be another comic strip next Monday!
Ryan Hart has a lot on her mind—school, self-image, and especially family. Her dad finally has a new job, but money is tight. That means some changes, like selling their car and moving. ☀️ But Ryan is a girl who knows how to make sunshine out of setbacks. And even when the unexpected happens, she always finds her way forward. ☀️ The first book in a new series from Newbery Honor and Coretta Scott King Author Award Renee Watson, “Ways to Make Sunshine” is now available on Overdrive. Highly recommended for ages 7-10. ☀️ #blackgirlmagic#diversitymatters#weneeddiversebooks
That’s one brilliant example for why books from independent authors and artists are of value, too. Many indie books cover topics that many traditional publishers keep their hands of, topics that are needed, though, now more than ever. Like the book “Momma, did you hear the News” by fellow author, Sanya Rene, about the saddening talks that black and other families have to have about how to stay safe when the police stops you.

Finding Serendipity by Angelica Banks. Tuesday McGillycuddy has a secret, her mom is the famous author Serendipity Smith. When she goes missing one night, Tuesday must follow her into an unknown world of stories. She befriends the heroic Vivian Small and has an adventure as looks for her mom and finds her way back home. Tuesday learns the lessons of friendship, loyalty and never giving up.
When I first saw this book, I was a little unsure about this book because of the cover art. I felt like it looked a little young and I wasn’t sure if it was a story I could get into let along my tween daughter. I gave it a chance and I LOVED it. Better yet, I gave it to my daughter, and she LOVED it too! This is the first of three books (those spotlights will be coming..) that follow Tuesday and her adventures in the magical world of stories. I love that Tuesday is a girl who is smart, resourceful and happy and that those qualities were celebrated in this book. This would be a great book for kids age 8-11 who love a good adventure! #quarantinedbookclub#kidsbooks#findingserendipitybook

Um livro infantil maravilhoso, foi um dos primeiros livros que li na infância, delicado, muito bonito, com mensagens morais e motivacionais.
I am shocked, outraged, and heartbroken at recent events.
I’m resharing my list of BOOKS ABOUT DIVERSITY AND CELEBRATING DIFFERENCES (link in bio) because I believe it is more important than ever to read books with children that celebrate diversity, expand their world view, and promote inclusivity.

🚂 Is there anyone hasn’t heard of Thomas the Tank Engine? Do you have fond memories of growing up with Thomas & Friends and being transported to new places through his adventures?
Michael Angelis, the longtime narrator for 🚂Thomas the Tank Engine series, died at his home aged 68 this Saturday. The actor narrated the classic children's show from 1991 to 2012 after taking over the role from The Beatles icon Ringo Starr. Michael's voice became synonymous with the UK edition of the show.
🚂 Thanks @egmontbooksuk for this us amazing Thomas the Tank Engine book bundle and toys to celebrate his 75th anniversary in 2020. Thomas the Tank stories were first told to the young Christopher Awdry when he was sick with measles in 1942, but due to wartime conditions, they were not published until 1945.
Thomas the Tank Engine has been a familiar face to many families over the 75 years. Entertaining, educating and inspiring children on important issues through original stories and characters.
