New Year, new outlook. Or at least I like to believe so. Here are three books that may help you in this endeavor.
written and illustrated by Jess Hong
The book begins with a simple question. What is lovely? The answer? We all are in our own unique and interesting ways. The illustrations are bright and cartoon- like and depict human diversity beautifully and with a touch of humor. Simple text, easy read. Great for kids 2-5.
I See You
written by Michael Genhart
illustrated by Joanne Lew-Vriethoff
A wordless picture book that depicts the day to day challenges of a homeless woman and the little boy who witnesses her struggles and tries to make sense of them. The homeless woman is depicted in black and white while the world around her is in full color. The story's ending brings a sense of hope. Ideas about how to help the homeless and how to help children understand homelessness are included at the end of the story. Good for kids 3-7.

The classic song re-imagined. A timely book about peace and love.
Happy New Year!
