JUST ARRIVED We have three new books based on real people in the children’s room this month. Brave Ballerina is the story of dancer Janet Collins, who was the first African-American ballerina to dance at the Metropolitan Opera House, told in a picture book. For older children, Never Caught reveals the life of Ona Judge, who escaped from slavery under George Washington, and Jo Ann Allen Boyce tells about her experiences integrating a Tennessee high school in 1956 in her poetical autobiography, The Promise of Change. Also in picture books, Vicky Shiefman’s Who Has Wiggle-Waggle Toes teaches children to love their own unique bodies, while Lucia Lacorte, Poor Sport, by Christianne Jones, helps them learn how to win and lose gracefully. They’ll be entertained by the antics of a would-be superhero in Kim Norman’s Thunder Pug and by the cat in There Are No Bears in This Bakery by Julia Sarcone-Roach, who somehow doesn’t notice a large furry beast and all the pastries disappearing. Children who enjoyed Rick Riordan’s books based on Greek, Roman, and Egyptian mythologies might enjoy Dragon Pearl by Yoon Ha Lee, a science fiction tale based in Korean mythology. Popular author Gordon Korman has a new book about the perils of middle school – The Unteachables features a classroom full of misfit kids and a teacher counting down to retirement. Finally, in nonfiction, help children learn about the history of one of the world’s oldest and largest countries with China, by Cheryl Bardoe, based on an exhibit from The Field Museum in Chicago.
