"See You In The Cosmos" by #JackCheng. Great #SummerRead of A Boy who wants to tell #outerspace of his world.
11-year-old Alex Petroski loves space and rockets, his #mom, his #brother, and his dog Carl Sagan—named for his hero, the real-life astronomer. All he wants is to launch his golden iPod into space the way Carl Sagan (the man, not the dog) launched his Golden Record on the Voyager spacecraft in 1977. From Colorado to New Mexico, Las Vegas to L.A., Alex records a journey on his iPod to show other lifeforms what life on earth, his earth, is like. But his destination keeps changing. And the funny, lost, remarkable people he meets along the way can only partially prepare him for the secrets he’ll uncover—from the truth about his long-dead #dad to the fact that, for a kid with a troubled mom and a mostly not-around brother, he has way more family than he ever knew.

Jack Cheng’s debut is full of joy, optimism, determination, and unbelievable heart. To read the first page is to fall in love with Alex and his view of our big, beautiful, complicated world. To read the last is to know he and his story will stay with you a long, long time.

Celebrate the Real Wonder Women with "Women in Science: 50 Fearless Pioneers who Changed the World" by Rachel Ignotofshy.

New York Times best seller Women in Science highlights the contributions of fifty notable women to the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) from the ancient to the modern world. Full of striking, singular art, this fascinating collection also contains infographics about relevant topics such as lab equipment, rates of women currently working in STEM fields, and an illustrated scientific glossary. The trailblazing women profiled include well-known figures like primatologist Jane Goodall, as well as lesser-known pioneers such as Katherine Johnson, the African-American physicist and mathematician who calculated the trajectory of the 1969 Apollo 11 mission to the moon.

Women in Science celebrates the achievements of the intrepid women who have paved the way for the next generation of female engineers, biologists, mathematicians, doctors, astronauts, physicists, and more!

Our #BookofTheDay is so relevant for right now "A is for Activist" by Innosanto Nagara #fridayreads #ParisAgreement #climatechange

“Reading it is almost like reading Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States, but for two-year olds—full of pictures and rhymes and a little cat to find on every page that will delight the curious toddler and parents alike.”—Occupy Wall Street

A is for Activist is an ABC board book written and illustrated for the next generation of progressives: families who want their kids to grow up in a space that is unapologetic about #activism, #environmental justice, #CivilRights, #LGBTQ rights, and everything else that activists believe in and fight for.

The alliteration, rhyming, and vibrant illustrations make the book exciting for children, while the issues it brings up resonate with their parents’ values of community, equality, and justice. This engaging little book carries huge messages as it inspires hope for the future, and calls children to action while teaching them a love for books.

This is absolutely #Hilarious !
Every young #grad needs this fun, snarky primer for the #realworld .

You’ll meet the world’s brightest, you’ll hang with the best! And now that you’ve met them, you’ll #work with the rest!
If you’re looking for an inspirational book for young people starting life’s great adventure, you probably want to read Dr. Seuss’s Oh, the Places You’ll Go! But before your first day of actual work, you need to meet #DrSuits for a dose of #reality. You won’t learn this stuff in #HighSchool, #College, or gift books by world-famous authors. But fear not!

With his unique blend of hilarious verse and images, Dr. Suits can help young grads get a handle on what’s really about to hit them. Oh, the Meetings You’ll Go To! is a brutally honest, and ultimately uplifting, take on the struggles of post-grad life that every 20-something will relate to.

Brand New at #Butterfly7.
We open the box and instantly fell in love with Lala.
"I Just Want to Say Good Night" is by #Caldecott Honor-winner Rachel Isadora. Her stunning oil paintings illustrate this delightful bedtime tale, set on the African plains.

The sun has set and the moon is rising, and that means it’s bedtime.
But not if Lala has a say—because she’s not ready to go to sleep!
First she needs to say good night to the cat. And the goat. And the chickens. And, and, and . . . Lala’s adorable stalling strategy will ring true for all parents whose little ones aren’t ready to say goodbye to the day—and all will appreciate the wonderful culmination to the bedtime ritual.

Great Picture Book for #BirthdayGift or #BedtimeStory. Beautifully reimagined tell of Cinderella with a gigantic twist!
"Cinderelephant, make my breakfast"
"Cinderelephant, mop the floor!"
Poor Cinderelephant! The Warty Sisters never say please or thank you (how rude!), and when she asks to go to the grand ball, they just laugh. "Whoever would want to dance with YOU?"
Little do they know, Cinderelephant has a Furry Godmouse on her side! And with a little help...and the right pair of shoes...anything is possible.
