This week's debate was rough—and America has been through rough times before. Alice Paul was arrested more than seven times in the fight to get the Nineteenth Amendment ratified (see the facts in the comments to see what that was like for her!). She never stopped fighting for #womensrights!

We blended some of the gorgeous interiors from two of our books that share Alice Paul's story—ALICE PAUL and FIGHT OF THE CENTURY. Find them both on Amazon or at your favorite bookstore, and learn more about this incredible woman who changed history, and don't forget to #vote this November!

The Teachers March is in stores today!

CONGRATULATIONS to Sandra Neil Wallace and Rich Wallace and Charly Palmer on your book birthday for THE TEACHERS MARCH! This book is amazing. Get the book here: https://amzn.to/34pZuUR

★ "An alarmingly relevant book that mirrors current events." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

★ "This stunningly powerful book by a team of award-winning creators should be part of every classroom library and teacher-preparation program. It’s the true story of the Reverend F. D. Reese, who taught high school science—but also freedom and equality. The narrative provides an unvarnished view of the deep levels of racism and violence that permeated society and aimed to thwart civil rights activism in the 1960s. The Wallaces pack their account with well-researched details so that readers get to know Reverend Reese and others as people as well as activists, and Palmer’s vibrant acrylic paintings intensify the urgency of the moment. A timely testament to the power of collectivism and the continued need for widespread civic engagement." —Booklist, starred review

★ "A vivid nonfiction narrative that illuminates the January 1965 Teachers’ March to Selma’s Dallas County Courthouse. By highlighting and interweaving the journeys of a few specific people—Rev. F.D. Reese...Dr. Martin Luther King Jr....and Too Sweet, a teacher and single mother who joined the march—the Wallaces eloquently portray the vitality of the group effort as well as the high risk involved in participating in the initial and subsequent Selma marches. Abstract, multilayered acrylic paintings by Palmer ground readers in the action. This well-researched picture book proves riveting in its telling of how everyday heroes led a fight that resulted in the Voting Rights Act." —Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Smelly" Kelly and His Super Senses

James Kelly smelled EVERYTHING: rats in the shed; circus elephants a mile away; tomorrow's rain. His sense of smell was EXTRAORDINARY. But what good was a powerful nose? How could his super-sniffer make him special?

James "Smelly" Kelly used his super-senses and intelligence to make sure that the New York City subway in the 1930s ran safely throughout his lifetime and beyond! Get your copy of "SMELLY" KELLY by Beth Anderson here: https://amzn.to/35L9ton

WHO 👏 MADE 👏🏽 THIS 👏🏿 MESS?

Oh! This mess? It was probably a narwhal. . .

So begins the game of wits when this feisty character blames her messy room on an imaginary narwhal. 😂 Explore this clever and delightful picture book: https://amzn.to/3kHb82p

"(A)musing and full of action... the introduction of a rare mammal makes for a(n) original twist on the silly picture book." —Kirkus Reviews

"Our bespectacled young heroine would like you to know that the mess in the kitchen is not at all her doing, but rather a narwhal’s—the creatures do love to make pie, after all. . . " —Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Today is the anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington—and today, people gather again to fight for equal rights. We wanted to share this poetry collection today from Wordsong, Voices from the March on Washington: https://amzn.to/3hDY5xQ

"The powerful poems in this poignant collection weave together multiple voices to tell the story of the March on Washington, DC, in 1963. From the woman singing through a terrifying bus ride to DC, to the teenager who came partly because his father told him, Don't you dare go to that march, to the young child riding above the crowd on her father’s shoulders, each voice brings a unique perspective to this tale. As the characters tell their personal stories of this historic day, their chorus plunges readers into the experience of being at the march walking shoulder-to-shoulder with strangers, hearing Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous speech, heading home inspired."
