I am a teacher and a mother of twin boys (7 years old.) I would love to hear about books to help my kids navigate friendships (both very domineering), grabbing from each others hands, fighting, etc. Also if there are books about the kid that never is ready and the whole family needs to wait for him :) Thanks.

Sachiko was only 6 years old when the United States dropped the atomic bomb on Nagasaki, Japan, but the affects of it lasted a lifetime. This is a book that is not to be missed in its honest portrayal of Sachiko's life. #YA

Did you ever have a pen pal? Was it another kid or a dragon? Share the special experience with your children by reading them dear Dragon by Josh Funk with illustrations by Rodolfo Montalvo. It just might get them eager to write a letter, on paper, to a pen pal of their own! Read Ronna's review of this new picture book.

Here's a good picture book for Talk Like a Pirate Day. http://abt.cm/ZuhRDc
A Pirate's Guide to First Grade is a good book for Talk Like a Pirate Day and for kids starting school. This children's picture book is fun to read aloud and share.

Evelyn's life has been all about routine, but now, as she enters 5th Grade, she is ready for change and Queen is just the boy who can show her the way. A great middle grade book about friendship and being yourself.

Now a days i find that children are so much involved in too many activities and have a very less time to get in touch with themselves and their families.

24 hours time is not sufficient for them. They wish for more time to have fun but when it comes to their mothers ,their hearts was happiest when their mothers do some simple things which they like most.

∙ Things like ­

∙ Give hugs n kisses.

∙ Spend quality time with them.

∙ Tell bedtime stories.

∙ Take them for picnic.

∙ Make their favourite food.

∙ Leave special message to them.

∙ Do extra care.

Now its a time to start thinking like them. Take their advise to make them happy.

I loved this picture book too which shows the structural racism that African Americans faced in the medical field. It has a happy ending though. The pioneer who developed the surgical techniques to save blue babies got recognition some two decades later. Review from +Alex Baugh
 
African American medical pioneer developed a method that saves the lives of babies every year. This is a fascinating picture book bio of his life and accomplishments despite discrimination. #diversity

Mary Malhotra reviews debut novel, ENTER TITLE HERE by Rahul Kanakia, from Hyperion. The "novel examines the fierce competition for college admissions in a fresh, surprising, and funny package ... The main character is Reshma Kapoor, a Silicon Valley high school senior who employs unhealthy and unsavory means to achieve her all-consuming end: admission to Stanford."
