It’s been a long time and I shouldn’t have left you without a dope book to look through. I cannot believe that I missed my March Bookshelf. I have been doing March Bookshelves for the past five years but this year life was lifing and I just couldn’t get it together to share some good reads. Don’t worry, these three titles will be on repeat with your littles.

Zandi’s Song – This book is beautiful and powerful, and perfect to celebrate Earth Day. This book magnificently reminds us of our connections to the Earth and more directly to the oceans. It shares with us how sealife and humans have depended on each other. It reminds us of the responsibility we have to those who live in the waters. It paints a powerful story of Zandi’s journey through the ocean. It reminds us that our ancestors gave us all we need to continue on. And it has gorgeous illustrations. I am interested in learning more about the author, Zandile Ndhlovu, and her Black Mermaid Foundation.

Little Red Driving Hood and the Three Repairs – This has quickly become a favorite read. Hops loves the story. She makes JustaBXgirl and me read it over and over again. They both also enjoy looking for the hidden object on each page. I love the lessons it teaches. Little Red learns what she lives. Great reminder for us parents. She’s also reminded that it takes time, study, and practice to master skills

Monster Hands – I love when books show representation in a way that doesn’t feel forced. This book is about how to scare the monsters under your bed. This book is about two friends communicating and brainstorming so one friend is no longer scared. This book is about ASL (American Sign Language). We do not know if ASL is used because Milo or Mel are deaf or hard of hearing. We only know they both use ASL to communicate from their bedroom windows. ASL is one of the many languages Soco is attempting to learn. I love how Mel and Milo work together to solve Milo’s monster problem.
