The Librarian's Stories

Thanks to CanLit for this wonderful review of "The Librarian's Stories" by Lucy Falcone and Anna Wilson!

"Most readers know the healing capacity of books and words but The Librarian's Stories reminds us that they can do much to restore communities from trauma as well. Without words, without stories, without reading, we are all desolate."

Happy book birthday to “The Librarian’s Stories” by Lucy Falcone and Anna Wilson!

A town is left in ruins after the bombs fall.
The beloved library is turned to ash.
Home will never feel the same.

But then one day, the Librarian appears in the square. Seated on a bench in front of the library ruins, she opens a book and begins to read aloud.

“The Librarian's Stories is a testament to the enduring connection between stories and hope.”

Who’s ready for something fun? 💁‍♀️

Newly re-imagined as a board book, “Follow This Line” takes you on an adventure across varying landscapes by tracing a continuous line as it zigs and zags, playfully spiraling into the shapes of animals, faces, buildings, vehicles and more, all without breaking its stride.

Adapted from artist Laura Ljungkvist’s popular picture book series "Follow the Line" (Viking, 2006-2011), "Follow This Line" introduces her clever continuous line drawings to a whole new audience!

On sale November 24th, preorder your copy here: https://www.amazon.com/Follow-This-Line-Laura-Ljungkvist/dp/1576879682/ref=sr_1_4?crid=2CIT72DLGGW8B&dchild=1&keywords=follow+the+line+laura+ljungkvist&qid=1605120652&sprefix=follow+this+line+laura+%2Caps%2C148&sr=8-4

I am thrilled to launch MaiStoryBook’s Book-a-Day Series celebrating Pride Month: Every day this week I will be sharing a NEW interactive read aloud on MaiStoryBook Youtube that celebrates all the different forms of love and identity there are.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hn9OLuPnW0s

Today’s First featured read aloud in the lineup: “Auntie Uncle: Drag Queen Hero” by Ellie Royce , Illustrated by Hannah Chambers. During the week, Uncle Leo is an accountant ~ good at crunching numbers and helping his nephew with math hw. On the weekends, Auntie Lotta dresses in fabulous gowns and performs, singing and dancing with her friends and nephew. Uncle Leo and Auntie Lotta are the same person. When Auntie Lotta performs a heroic act during a Pride Parade, and is invited by the mayor to an award ceremony to celebrate her with her friends and family, Auntie Lotta wants all of her friends to come. However, she worries that Uncle Leo’s friends won’t be as accepting of her and her drag queen friends. With the help of their nephew, can they find a way for *both* Uncle Leo and Auntie Lotta to receive the award?

With bright illustrations and expressive characters, this is a genuine, sweet, and uplifting story about the courage to be who you are and let your true self shine for the world to see!

Thank you to POW Kids Books for sharing this read with me!
