Alphabet books can be a lot of fun! Don’t feel like you have to read the entire book with your child. Let him or her choose letters or pages to look at. Say the letter, sound, and word aloud. Especially show the letter that begins your child’s name. Letter knowledge is a pre-literacy skill that will help your child sound out words when learning to read.

In the biography, Josephine: The Dazzling Life of Josephine Baker, Patricia Hruby Powell’s rhythmic text and Christian Robinson’s bold illustrations give pizzazz to one African American entertainer’s extraordinary life and the era in which she lived. From rags in St. Louis to riches and fame in Paris, Josephine broke color barriers with her dancing, singing, and silly on-stage persona. You’ll be dazzled by the life of this intriguing performer, who also became a stunt pilot, had a pet leopard, and adopted 12 children from 10 different countries!
