Hope Is Here!

Hope Is Here!

Written by Christina Kessler

Illustrated by Marcos Castillo

“I’m bored!” I’m tired!” “I’m thirsty!”

This is all Miss B. hears from her students during a field trip to Great Pond to look for a bird called Hope. Little do the kids know that the amazing story of this whimbrel, a species of shorebird, will not only take their breath away, but by the end of the day, nothing will be more important to see Hope for themselves.

Based on the true story of a bird’s annual journey that even scientists knew little about, Hope Is Here! will teach, entertain, and leave the reader with a deeper appreciation of just how incredible nature really is.

Footprints Into the Sunrise

Alexander Hamilton’s Life Through the Eyes of a Boy

By Alscess Lewis-Brown

For Azkiah, nothing is easy after losing his mother. Attending a new school and having no friends are just two of his problems. He also has to figure out why his grandfather put him on a plane all alone from Nevis to live with a stranger on the island of St. Croix. Who is this man that he lives with? Why does he treat Azkiah with such indifference? The answers are not arriving fast, but Azkiah finds two sources of comfort: writing letters to his grandfather and reading about another orphan born in Nevis who, just like him, was forced to move to St. Croix in his youth. A man named Alexander Hamilton.
