Genius Jolene

On her annual trip in her father’s 18-wheeler, eight-year-old Jolene is headed to Los Angeles on a six-day road trip to deliver some newsprint with her dad. Just like last year, they tell each other stories and listen to music. They also keep up their favorite tradition: critiquing one type of food at every stop. This time it’s onion rings. But this year is also different. Unlike last year, Jolene’s parents are no longer together. They split up when her father came out as gay. These are big changes for Jolene, but she is spunky and smart and has a good heart. She’s ready for new adventures and to stand up for what’s right—both on and off the road.

Bigger Than Daddy

Harriet Ziefert (author) Elliot Kreloff (illustrator)

Publisher: Blue Apple Books ISBN: 9781609051358

In this story about the relationship between a boy and his father, Edward yearns to be big like his dad and fast like a fire truck. He and his dad go to the park, then walk home, play, and have dinner before Edward has a bath and is tucked into bed. Along the way, the boy demands the chance to engage in grown-up activities, ranging from the doable (pressing the elevator button) to the less doable (outrunning a big red fire truck). Capturing the teasing affection between a young preschool boy and his dad, the simple language shows the humor, energy, and bossiness of the young child, and the father's love for his son shining through. Parents will recognize Edward's many familiar pleas, while kids will appreciate his frustrations and the spirited way that he deals with them.
