Denise Brennan-Nelson (author), Cyd Moore (illustrator)

Publisher: Sleeping Bear Press ISBN: 9781410307637

Mr. Larch is not a very neighborly neighbor. He never has any visitors. His gray, gloomy house never has any decorations. He avoids everyone and everyone avoids him. But now Mr. Larch has a new neighbor. Willow and her family have moved into the bright yellow house directly across the street. Willow loves her new house and neighborhood. She loves the summer and planting her garden. She loves the fall and sharing vegetables with her neighbors. And when winter arrives, she loves that, too. She can't wait for the first snowfall because she has found the perfect hill for sledding. And it's right behind Mr. Larch's house. Can Willow melt his cold heart in time to enjoy a Snow Day? Denise Brennan-Nelson's books with Sleeping Bear Press include the Likes to Say series, Someday Is Not a Day of the Week, and Buzzy the bumblebee.

A Seed Was Planted / Sembré una semilla

Toula Palazetti (author), Pamela Barcita (illustrator)

Publisher: Raven Tree Press ISBN: 9781621671916

This is the bilingual (English/Spanish) version of A Seed Was Planted. There is also a vocabulary page at the end of the book. A wonderful cycle of giving begins when a seed is planted. Pieces and sprouts of walnut tree are passed along from one person to that person's friend and on that that friend's neighbor and on and on and on. The circle of giving creates a new crop of trees (supporting the idea of reforestation) and instills traditional values of sharing and caring. It also brings about a spirit of hope and goodwill to the givers. Love grows along with the saplings in the beautifully generous world. An inspiration and a timely lesson for children, adults and whole communities.
