review 1: Chris Raschka is known for his ability to get to the essence of things with minimal words and deceptively simple illustrations. He's hit the mark again in this new series that, frankly, should be board books. They're perfectly aimed at babies and toddlers who will want to read th...

review 1: Claiming to be from Saturn, Sun Ra was definitely an out-of-this world character. Although he may have marched to a different beat, whose to say he was crazy? What's wrong with looking past people's skin colors? What's wrong with not participating in war? I love this quote: You m...

review 1: The characters in this book are really fun. Norman Normann has a nice character arc. It is very interesting to watch him grow as a person during the year chronicled in this book. The author handles this in a subtle way and does a good job of showing Norman change rather than tell...
